    The best recipe app I've ever used. As a matter of fact it is the only recipe app I use. I recommend it to anyone who cooks at all or who wants to be a better cook.

    LUV THIS APP!❤ Especially the option of entering 3 ingredients to produce recipes that use them! Only thing I'd like to see is the ability to pin new found recipes to start screen.😉 Make that possible & I'll be more than happy to rate 5 stars!🙆 (Nokia Lumia Icon user)

    Great app! Only a few notes. When pressing the back button when looking at a recipe, it would be great to not start from the top of the list of recipes but from the one you were on. Also, its useful to have a more organized menu for switching between recipes you saved and the recipes you're looking at just so you don't add them to favorites and forget about them. Thanks for the app!

    Love adding recipes to 'try it soon' and how the grocery list works with all devices. Even my husbands now he gets exactly what I need.
