September 09, 2002: Googlecooking!

Update: A kind anonymous fellow writes in to share a link to amitp's Google Recipe search dating back to 2000. He also suggests that Googlecooking sounds more like "cooking with the combined heat of ten thousand computers". ;-)

Jason Kottke wrote in to say that Meg's mother has invented Googlecooking: "shortly before supper time I look around for some combination of foods I've got on hand and which seem like they might go together. Then I 'google' them [...] and browse through the results until I find a recipe that appeals to me."

Meg writes: "I've always wanted a database of all my cookbooks so I could do just this. It never occurred to me to use Google instead."
