I know that for many people, the concept of having leftover wine is laughable, but just hear me out! First of all, if you haven't tried cooking with wine yet, you should definitely give it a whirl. It's an easy way to add a unique flavor to everyday dishes. 

So picture this: You're a red wine drinker but a recipe that catches your eye call for white wine. So you buy a bottle, use 1/2 - 1 cup for the recipe and are left with a 2/3 full bottle of wine that you don't particularly want to drink from a glass.

That's where I come in! I rounded up 12 delicious recipes that call for white wine. Scroll through and pick out a couple to try. It's a win-win! You get to try a few more new recipes and you no longer have a lonely bottle of wine on your counter!

And if you're a fan of white wine, nothing says you can't help yourself to a glass while cooking!
