Forked solves the immortal problem that Micheal Pollan and thousands of impatient eaters before him have grumbled in their kitchens; What should I have for dinner?
Forked is a Ruby on Rails based Web application that feeds users recipes that they can cook based on the ingredients in their pantries.
With a very simple user interface, Forked users can make a profile and fill in their virtual "fridges" with the ingredients that they have at home. Those ingredients are then fed into the Spoonacular recipe database and dozens of recipes are returned that use only ingredients the user has entered.
Forked is Facebook enabled, and allows users to share recipes with their friends, as well as plan dinner parties and make dishes using ingredients from both of their "fridges".
Stack: Ruby on Rails, jQuery, HTML/CSS, Bootstrap, Spoonacular API suite, Facebook OAuth.
