Top apps for the busy cook

Apr 26, 2011

As an avid home cook, I know that getting food successfully from the produce section to the dinner table can be an adventure. These apps help make it easy.

Allrecipes Dinner Spinner

This app takes a menagerie of peer-reviewed recipes and quickly narrows it down based on 3 simple criteria (dish, main ingredient, cooking time). You can also build a favorites list of your most loved/used recipes for easy access.


Shopping list

This app works with bar code scanner to help you build lists and check things off with little to no drama. You can build multiple lists based on specific recipes, household needs, etc.


Recipe Convert Free

This is especially useful if you love to make international cuisine, or use recipes that require you to translate between metric and standard quantities. The interface is straightforward and easy to use.


Healthy Recipes & Calculator

While the interface is less engaging than some other recipe apps, it’s hard to beat SparkRecipes when it comes to being health-conscious and tasty at the same time.


My CookBook (Recipe Manager)

Want easy access to your favorite recipes on the go? Done and done! This app allows you to store your own culinary brilliance (including photos) as well as import favorites from other compatible sites.
