This is the . . . absolute best . . . idea I think anyone has ever had in the history of the world. You have just solved the one main problem I have with all of my cookbooks and magazines.

EYB is a pillar of management for me…EYB knows what meals can be made from the bits and pieces in the fridge and pantry.
Adrienne - September 2017

I have to tell you ~ this site is the most amazing thing that I have encountered in a long long time!
Bonnie – March 2017

I love it. It has immeasurably improved the way I use my cookbooks. I grow my own veggies and can collect relevant recipes instantly when I have a harvest.
Cynthia - February 2017

I’ve definitely been using my cookbook recipes so much more…EYB is the best thing to happen to cookbook fans since cookbooks!
Diane – July 2017

I can take odds and ends in my fridge, or the contents of my farm box and pantry, type them into the search, and find a list of dishes to cook from my cookbooks. Recipes that I would never have the time to stumble across while manually flipping through pages.

I think it's brilliant! I certainly get more out of my books and I certainly buy a lot more books now.......
Jeanne – May 2017

I love EYB – I get a kick out of finding new recipes and rediscovering cookbooks that I had forgotten I have - it appeals to my sense of environmental responsibility/sustainability.

Top 50 websites for Food and Drink. Best Chef Recipes.

If you have a lot of cookbooks, and friends who randomly arrive with rabbits (130 recipes), partridge (33) or even a nice bag of Jerusalem artichokes (77) and have no idea what to do and where to start looking, this is a brilliant idea that works in practice, not just theory. Seriously.

When you want to find a recipe, or search for recipes using a specific ingredient, you simply type that in and a list of locations pops up…It's pretty brilliant actually.
