Ingredients

Listed below are the ingredients I use in my recipes and the price I paid for them (at one point). I further break down the cost into measurements so that I can get an approximate cost for the recipes I make. Using these costs I can make comparisons to the price of similar dishes purchased at restaurants and pre-made meals available at grocery stores.

A little crazy? Perhaps… But I like numbers!
