What's Cooking? USDA Mixing Bowl
Search for recipes and build a menu on the What’s Cooking? USDA Mixing Bowl website.

The What's Cooking? USDA Mixing Bowl is an interactive tool to help with healthy meal planning, cooking, and grocery shopping. The site features a searchable database of healthy recipes, options to save recipes to a cookbook, print recipe cards, and share recipes via social media. All of the recipes previously on have been moved to this website and join thousands more from other USDA programs: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), USDA Foods, and Team Nutrition.
