So, McCormick has a very cool website that allows you to FlavorPrint yourself. It’s brilliant. You basically make a login, answer questions based on your flavor preferences, cooking style, etc. and…

BAM

Recipes just for you.

What a fantastic idea.

Although creating recipes is a hobby for me, there are times that I need a hand figuring out what I’ll be making for dinner; I’m tired and I need something to make the decision for me so I can get food on the table. Usually it’s the days I work, or times that I’m just not in the mood to come up with something new to add to our dinner rotation.

After making a profile, it gives you recommendations based on your preferences.

It gave me so many great options. I decided to make Shrimp and Queso Fresco Empanadas with Charred Tomatillo Sauce. They were excellent. My daughter is very picky, and will not eat any meat or seafood, so I customized hers by omitting the shrimp. She loves all kinds of cheeses, so they went over really well with her.

p.s. I made a double batch of the shrimp filling (you never know what you could do with it!). I used it as a filling for wonton skins, baked them on 400 degrees for about 10 minutes and dipped them in the tomatillo sauce. My husband absolutely LOVED these.
