393737 PHP Cookbook / Meal Plan site

In Progress


I need a full membership website development including specialized tools/widgets such as:

Weight tracker

Calorie calculator

Diabetic counter

Personal progress journal

Coupon search utility

We want many of the above tools/widgets to be branded with our company logo and link (non-removable) and made to where other website owners can download them and use them on their websites as free content. Customers can also download and use them on their desktop.

We also want a forum area

It'll be a Recipe & Diet membership website - (10 recipes per category will need to be supplied by chosen developer for testing / launch purposes).

The website also needs a three-part utility (these will need to work in conjunction with each other):

Part #1: [database]

A sortable recipe database (sorts via breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, holiday, main ingredient)

Part #2: [personal recipe box(s)]

When a member finds a recipe they like I want them to be able to click a link (or drag and drop) that will save it into their personal 'recipe box'. Each member will have a Recipe Box where they can assign categories and store their favorite recipes.

Part #3: [customized shopping list]

When a member has chosen 1 or a group of recipes from the Database OR from their Recipe Box I want them to be able to drags sdrop that will build them a complete shopping list. The shopping list will be created from the list of ingredients in the recipes and it will need to specify amounts. The shopping list software will need to get a sum of redundant ingredients from all recipes and place the TOTAL amount of that ingredient on the list.

We'd like the website to be as complete and automated as possible with a VERY simple administrative interface. We'll also need at least 10 recipes per category (this will be the contractors responsibility) to give us a good testing arena to start with.

I'm interested in discussion from anyone that is confident in creating an incredible, fun, easy, interactive, informative and functional experience for potential members.

Need to hold average ingredient cost to calculate meal cost

Recipes need to scale to number of servings

I'll want the recipes to be sortable several ways including:


Cost per serving

Low Calorie

Low Carb



Appetizers & Snacks


Breakfast & Brunch



Main Dishes (Entrees)


Side Dishes











Dinner Party

Recipes should include the following breakdown nutritional details:




calories (including calories from fat)


sugar / diabetic exchange details



preparation time



Store and organize all your favorite recipes in one safe, always accessible place.

Add custom items to your shopping list

Add private notations to your recipes

Unlimited recipe database search with 'one click save' to your personal recipe box.

'Drag and drop' technology allows you to create daily, weekly or even monthly menus with a simple click of the mouse.

Customize your shopping list with other items you may need (or delete items you may already have in your pantry).

Print to PDF (or email PDF) a menus shopping list with one click.
