In a Dinner rut? Roll the Dice!

One of the great things about working at MAKE is the inspiration I get from seeing a parade of new projects and bright ideas everyday. The exposure to so much creativity have given me license to make something of my own. I just need to find the time.

Then there are those projects that make me think “I should have done that.” Such was the case with the simple, but ingenious Foodie Dice, a Kickstarter project that’s already 413 percent over its fundraising goal with another 29 days to go.

I’ve been in a cooking rut lately I could totally use a little creative help. I mean, tacos are great, but three nights a week? Foodie Dice will get you out of your rut. Simply pick a seasonal vegetable die and roll the corresponding ingredient dice (all laser etched wood) and you’ve got the basics of for dinner. The dice give you 186,000 food combinations. That ought to get me out of my rut. Fun and smart. And if you don’t like what you rolled, roll again.
