    I would give it more but the metric system is not good.....everything is converted in to ml instead of grams, tbls, kg etc. Please work this out better or ad with all recipes a option to convert from within

    Luv this app!💗 Esp opt of entering 3 ingredients to produce recipes that use them! Only prob is not being able to pin new found recipes to start screen, hence 4 stars.☹ Make this poss & more than happy to rate 5 stars!😊😉 (Nokia Lumia icon user)
