WHICH WE FIND POST-IRONIC AND REFRESHING
Snacksby is a different, easier kind of recipe site. You tell us what
you’ve got in your fridge, in your pantry, or just what you’re looking
to find in a recipe, even how much of each ingredient and wham!, we let
you know what your options are.
Recipes and ingredients are tagged with snacksonomies, which are tags
like lowfat or vegetarian that help you find what you might like better
Snacksby knows about measurements and substitutions. Snacksby can tell
you what to do if you don’t have buttermilk or if you’d like a vegan
substitute for eggs. You can tell us you have a bulb of garlic, and we
know that’s so many cloves, and so many teaspoons, so we won’t spit a
40-clove roasted garlic chicken recipe at you if you’ve only got a
couple tablespoons of the minced stuff. Don’t worry, we’ve got you
Keep up to date with the snacksby blog, and if you’d like to give me
feedback or let me know if something is going terribly wrong, you can
