    Hi @KSM,

    Welcome to the forums!

    Wow! That's quite a shopping list you have there... pun intended :slight_smile:

    If you will allow me some time to collect some references, I'll get back to you later today with something useful. Fair enough?

    BTW, I'll be closing the other 2 threads you started on this same topic as they are identical. And we don't want to have responses to the same question by the same member on 3 different threads; gets pretty confusing :slight_smile:

    Hi again @KSM,

    Sorry about not getting back to you yesterday (busy, busy).

    I've come up with a few ideas to help you improve your site the way I think you want. I haven't found anything to help you automatically make a grocery list from weekly/monthly menus though, sorry.

    Ingredient with link to recipes with same ingredient
    Search recipes by choosing some ingredients

    I imagine that, ideally, you would like each listed ingredient to be a clickable search term that links to a search results page with other recipes using the same ingredient. I haven't been able to find a plugin to help you do that directly. However, the following plugin will allow your users to build their own search query. As a simple example, they could search for all recipes in the "Snacks" category with "Chocolate" as an ingredient.
