Epicurious Recipe App
One of the Internet’s most popular cooking sites now has an Android app! And it’s just as easy to use as the original.
By far the best grocery-list app I’ve found, Grocery iQ includes features like a favorite ingredients tag, voice recognition, and a route planner to help you navigate the aisles of your local chain store.
Meat Cooking Reference
Making a meaty meal can be intimidating, what with all the cooking-temperature rules and complicated preparations. This app is very helpful: it educates you about everything from different cuts to deep-frying.
I love this app because it has such a wealth of information. It helps you convert temperature, weight, volume, and–my favorite–amounts of selected ingredients.
Pair It! Expert Wine Pairing
The food-wine pairings that Pair It! provides are pretty reliable–after all, they’re selected by a Sonoma Wine Country chef. You can search by dish, ingredient, or wine, but the app also offers recipes, random pairings for when you’re feeling adventurous, and a notes function so you can save more information about each combination.
Grubhub Food Delivery/Takeout
And if all else fails, there’s always delivery–which GrubHub does really, really well. Its app allows you to search for local restaurants that deliver to your address (currently encompassing thirteen US cities), check their hours, view their menus, and even order online.
