def create_shopping_list Hash.new(create_shopping_list) return hash end

Your function is trying to return a variable "hash" that doesn't exist.
Inside of the function, your first line
Hash.new(create_shopping_list) is creating a hash, then trying to insert
create_shopping_list into it. For an empty hash, just use
After you create the empty hash, you need to return it. you can do this in two lines (by assigning the new hash to a variable) or one line (return the new hash directly):
def create_shopping_list h = Hash.new() return h end
def create_shopping_list return Hash.new() end
Let me know if you have any questions!
Thanks so much for the clarification.
