So many times I find myself struggling to figure out what to make for dinner and many times I am standing in the grocery store still clueless as to what to make. My new solution is downloading many of the free food apps that are available on the iphone. This has been a big time saver for me – I just keep looking through the different apps till we find something we want to make !
Here are a few of our favorite iphone food apps
1. Allrecipes Dinner Spinner – Recipes, Drinks, and more! Free
Each recipe has a picture, average cooking time and other essential information to help. Just made a great mexican bean pie recipe from this app yesterday !
2. Martha Stewart’s EveryDay Food $.99
Great images of the recipes and I love the combination of ingredients she chooses.
3. Women’s Day Cooking Assistant FREE
They have some great low calorie recipes and a yummy assortment of salads – not to mention their variety of great summer recipes.
4. 170,000 Recipes and Grocery – Big Oven FREE
Shows some really unique recipes – great for when you want to mix it up a little.
5. TODAY Show Recipes Free
I don’t always get to watch the today show but I love that I can still see all the recipes they have made that day – there is even video of certain recipes.
6. The Betty Crocker Mobile Cookbook Free
Not just cake recipes. I love the browse by ingredient search. There are even coupons in this app!
7. Epicurious Recipes and Shopping List FREE
I’ll be honest I don’t use this one very often only because the recipes catered more towards the adult palate and there was not way my kids were going to eat most of these recipes.
8. Healthy Recipes – By SparkRecipes FREE
We just started using this one -the search function seems to be a little off but maybe they will fix it.
