Neat Wolfram Alpha trick...
In case you are the dieting type, you ought to know that you can put recipes into Wolfram Alpha and get back nutritional information in the form of a standard US Nutritional Information label.

For instance, my morning breakfast usually consists of a 3-egg cheese omelet and half a banana. Searching on Wolfram Alpha for 3 eggs + 1T olive oil + 2oz Cheddar Cheese + 1/2 banana yields the results that it's a 571 Calorie meal, with 27g protein, 15g carbs (2 of which are dietary fiber), and gives me 24% of the RDA of Vitamin A (based on a 200Cal diet), among other things.

(and i gave up without even trying to input "1 small dried hot pepper")
