We know how it is. It's 5pm, and you've just had a glorious day of work, creating awesome wireframes for your next project. You are giddy with excitement, and cannot WAIT to see your designs in the hands of your sure-to-fall-in-love-with-it-immediately users.

And then it hits you: crap, what should I make for dinner tonight?

The eternal question. The hardest part of cooking. Too many options, and none of them comes to mind.

How anticlimactic, going from the heights of creative excitement to the panic of the looming dinner deadline, only a few hours away.

That's where we come in.

From within Balsamiq Mockups, go to the Help menu and select "What should I make for dinner?". You'll be taken back to this page.

Lots and lots of EASY, EVERY-DAY recipes straight from the Balsamiq team's kitchens, in super-quick video format you can watch as you put your jacket on right as you leave the office.

Just browse through the list of videos, pick one that looks good, jot down the ingredients and run out the door.

Nothing fancy here, this is what we cook for ourselves when we don't know what to make.

Valerie cranks out a new video almost each week, so check back often. You can subscribe to the YouTube channel's RSS feed here.

We hope you'll want to contribute with your every-day staple dinners. This could become quite a cool little library! Wiki-simple-video-recipes-edia anyone? ;) If you'd like to contribute with your video, just email us and we'll figure out a way to publish it. If you don't have a video but still want to contribute, send us your recipe via email and Val will try to make it!

Buon appetito! :)
