Has potential to be awesome- not yet
I did a test of a few different Meal Planner type services: PepperPlate, Plan to Eat and Meal Board. I'm sticking with Pepperplate. I wish it had a tad more bells and whistles- which I liked from Meal Board- the ability to email/print the Meal Plan as well as the shopping list. I know I can share/email/print recipes, but PP developers take it a step further please. I hate walking around the grocery store with my phone in my hand looking at my list. I am old-skool. Plus, it would be nice to be able to email it to my husband so he could run to the store. And we could print the meal plan and put it on the fridge.
Recipe adding was a cinch- both from the import and manual add. I hope the developers continue to add supported sites to import. I'm glad there is a free form way to add items to the menu that are not recipes and the same goes for the grocery list. I also appreciate the ability to edit the grocery list...some of the ways the shopping list combines ingredients are odd, but I get it why it happens.
Love this digital recipe book!
I've been looking for a good way to digitally compile the various recipes I have/try out for quite some time. Pepperplate was definitely the answer! It's very easy to use and I can access my recipes on my iPhone, Windows 8 computer, and iPad, as well as online. My favorite pluses: you can share recipes with other users, it's easy to order and organize eclipses, you can include photos and custom notes. Sometimes there are issues with photos loading or being able to import recipes through the app itself, but these are easily trouble shouted by logging in online. Although I haven't explored the planning features of this platform, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a user-friendly way to archive and use recipes. Can't wait to see what developments they come out with in the future!
I have a love/hate relationship with PP. It's got great features and I use it almost daily. On the downside, you can't email shopping lists which is annoying unless you are the one who always does meal planning and shopping (shared tasks in my home). I always seem to have some challenges editing grocery lists as well. For example, we eat lots of garlic in our house. If there are 4 recipes that call for garlic, the app puts them on your shopping list like this:
3 cloves garlic
1 clove garlic, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 cloves garlic
I like to edit that as "1 head garlic" because obviously you don't buy individual cloves so it streamlines my shopping list and gives me a more accurate count of how many items I actually will need to purchase (useful to me for estimating grocery costs and how long it will take me to shop). Anyway, both the app and the desktop site are extremely frustrating. You have to individually delete and edit each line one at a time, save it, and then go to the next line. It literally cannot handle more than one operation/edit at once.
Generally speaking, both the app and site are super glitchy. It wigs out, freezes up and runs so slow sometimes that I wonder if we've transported back to '98 and dial up Internet. Aggravation! If they'd just fix those few things, it would be utterly perfect.
