    Love the app for daily use. Wish it had a weekly meal planner so you can just add recipes to each day. So you can have a set menu for the week for dinner.

    Looks good so far. Tried it iOS and WM8. Confusing though as menu items are different on each phone. Cant find menu planner on WM, but its prominent on iOS. iphone doesn't have a refresh option i can find, so its slow to sync.

    Great recipes for when you have a few things on the pantry or fridge and don't know what to make. Overall good recipes, always turn out well.

    Love it!! A huge variety of great recipes. My only problem with it is when I open a recipe while browsing and try to return to the search results, it goes to the very beginning rather than my current page.
