I thought it would be very convenient to be able to order ingredients based on a recipe all on one website.

What it does

Allows users to search for recipes based on keyword searches, read detailed information about a recipe and curate a list of ingredients priced by Walmart's API.

How I built it

I used asp.Net MVC 5 to generate a website application and used the controller to call all of the business logic.

Challenges I ran into

I had a difficult time finding a good recipe API, and getting that API to send me JSON instead of XML.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I have a much better understanding of API usage and documentation.

What I learned

How to get JSON from an API.

What's next for Recipe Buddy

The API costs $100/mo. after a free 2 weeks, so it will probably be shut down unless income could be generated by getting a percentage of revenue generated through recipe Buddy's traffic.
