Sometimes we don't know what we can make with our ingredients left at home, so we sought out to solve this problem. Cooking food on your own is already task-heavy enough as it is, and often times deciding what to make is the most time-consuming task. Our app can cut that task out of the equation entirely.

What it does

Type in ingredients that you have in your fridge and Recipe Maker will give you a delicious dish including all the steps to make it.

How we built it

We built the backend around AgentHub's API and Python, while the frontend was made using HTML/CSS and Figma.

Challenges we ran into

The OpenAI API takes time to generate a response, so we constantly had to check the output of the result so that it generates it first before the program decides that it was an "error". Narrowing down this issue took a lot of debugging.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Figuring out how to use an API for the first time and how to export HTML/CSS files from Figma.

What we learned

How to use an API and export HTML/CSS files from Figma.

What's next for Recipe Maker

Generate different dishes if the dish that was shown is not wanted. Update website UI. Polish website visuals. Host the website on a server.
