******************************

This app basically gives you free recipes. It has many features such as the recipe book, shopping list, shake n’ make, snap n’ cook and get inspired. These features caught my attention, although I do not know how to cook (haha).

Here are some of the recipe categories that are available in the app. I cannot show everything here since there are lots of categories.

You can also upload your own recipes:

Here is a sample of one recipe (pad thai). As you can see, the app provides you with the preparation time, cooking time, number of servings and the nutrition details. Great isn’t it? You can save the recipe by clicking the “heart” symbol. The ingredients and directions are listed at the bottom. Suggestions for other recipes are also listed at the end.

Another nice feature is the Shake N’ Make. This is very handy if you do not know what dish to cook using the ingredients you currently have on hand. You only need to select the ingredients you have and then shake your phone. The app will then give you recipes that you can use to cook the ingredients that you have. Amazing!

I did one example here: I selected pineapple, orange, mango and strawberry. The app gave me recipe suggestions such as sorbet, salsa and smoothie.

The last feature is the Snap N’ Cook. It is similar to the Shake N’ Make, but you will snap photos of your ingredients and the app will detect your ingredients. Shake your phone and then get recipe suggestions. I haven’t tried this actually, but will do this as soon as I am able.

Try this app! 🙂
