Figuring out what is for dinner, has become harder than ever – especially for those of us who are single. I have managed to cook my way through my Pinterest board and am getting sick of making the same thing weekly, so I have started to resort to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for dinner.
While parents hear \”what\’s for dinner?\” my friends hear it from me, because I am always looking for new ideas. If you\’re like me and are completely exhausted in the kitchen there is a new solution. Let me introduce you to Chefbot.
Kroger recently launched Chefbot, a first-of-its-kind AI Twitter tool that delivers personalized recipe recommendations based on ingredients you already have in your kitchen. You simply tweet @KrogerChefbot three ingredients you have, and you will be provided with some delicious ideas for dinner. I have used the Kroger Chefbot a few times now, and it has definitely sparked some new inspiration.
I am loving salmon lately, but keep preparing it the same way, so I let Kroger Chefbot help with dinner. My kitchen was looking pretty bare and I only tweeted Chefbot two ingredients: salmon and rice. Kroger Chefbot came back with some delicious recipes and ultimately I decided on Crispy Rice Salmon.
If you\’re struggling with dinner ideas, I highly recommend giving Kroger Chefbot a try.
