    Great app, has many recipes and a feature to show recipes using leftovers. The only down is the interface that's really ugly.

    For free, you can find over 350,000 recipes, make a grocery list and much more. Only the blog option redirects you to the web.

    Easy to use. Great.!
  • by Patrick 12/11/2014
    A great reference for recipes of all kinds. The users leave helpful reviews, for the most part. Only negative is that a lot of the recipes are not proofed, and can be misleading if not read carefully, in full, before you start cooking. The app's functionality is solid.

    This app is super glitchy, keeps redirecting me to their website, and has almost no features unless you pay for their subscription!

    Very helpful

    Seems like it's got a lot of recipes, but you've got to pay for most. I'll stick to Googling it...
