If you are like me (constantly undecisive about what to eat), Gojee.com can
help. Type in an ingredient you have / crave / dislike, and Gojee can help
point you in the right direction to a happier belly. How do they do it? By 
carefully curating recipes from food blogs. And recently, Six Course Dinner
was asked to partake. Go check them out to figure out what to make tonight. Go
check them out to discover other great food blogs. Heck, go check them out just
to see my oddly cropped mug.
