Recipe Key Archive
Recipe Key provides a recipe database that you can search by the ingredients in your pantry. When you find a recipe you like, the page has checkboxes so you can note which items you already have and which items you need to buy. Another feature I like is the serving size changer. This allows you to select the number of people who will eat the recipe and the system updates the needed ingredients accordingly.
Recipe Key also features an allergen search which is becoming increasingly important these days. You need to create an account to use the allergen search but the account feature also saves recipes you like. There’s also a "My Pantry" feature inside the account which keeps track of the items you have on hand.
It appears that the site is monetized via ads and a partnership with the PeaPod grocery delivery service. Would be interesting to see them approach manufacturers of items on the recipes they list. Instead of suggesting "cheddar cheese" they could display "Kraft cheddar cheese" with a link to a video explaining why Kraft’s cheese is better, etc.
