Something like wordpress wouldn't fit everything I'm looking for. While I can use WP to add recipes, it won't sort out things like ingredients for making a shopping list. Say I choose to fix these three meals this week and then I ask it to build a shopping list. WP, to my knowledge, won't do that like the previous site I was using did.
I'm going to just try creating a new subdomain and have it be hosted with PHP 5.2
