    This a joke? A pork chop recipe that calls for nothing but pork and BBQ sauce. Thanks.

    Love the recipe finder for using leftovers!

    This app has deemed me head chef in my house, great recipes and variety...only update I would suggest is have a grocery list per recipe, instead of grouping all ingredients of favorited recipes all together...this makes grocery shopping much harder

    Wonderful ideas even for unusual recipes. We try to limit carbs and there are some fabulous recipes to accommodate this. Great app! We use it all the time!

    Love big oven would be nice if the grocery list in the windows app had a store mode like the android app so it would move items to the bottom of the list when checked.

    This app sucks, I have reported the username/password bug before and you still have not fixed the problem! Fix it and do not release any new versions until you get it fixed or I will report your app to Microsoft.
