Ingredient IQ - Become a Boss in the kitchen

Do you love to eat home cooked meals but think that you are too busy?

Meet Emily

Emily is a busy professional that loves to cook (and eat) but hates planning and shopping for meals.

Emily has a few fresh ingredients in the fridge and a lot of staple items in the pantry. What she doesn't know is that she can make a few delicious recipes with what she has on hand like Chicken Scampi or Pesto Lasagna Rolls or even Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie. We have gathered the Top 50 most saved recipes from - you are sure to love these classic dishes.

Emily found Ingredient IQ to select which meals she wants to cook for the week and creates a shopping list (organized by store) directly from the recipe. At the end of the week she uses this template to see what she can make with the left over ingredients.

Emily saves time & money & eats well!

Be like Emily and enjoy cooking again by using Ingredient IQ.

Who are you?

My name is Alex Hues. I have an extensive advertising and marketing background and I've decided to go out on my own and I officially launched my own business. Some call me a solopreneur. I'm a one man show, but I'd call myself lucky to do what I love. I do it all from planning online marketing campaigns to graphic design and website building. Notion has been a great resource for me as I plan my business endeavors and I wanted to combine my love of Notion and the love of food to create Ingredient IQ. I hope you enjoy.
