Basil makes it easy to find new recipes with its special quick-search feature, and organizes them for you. Each new recipe is tagged with its main ingredients, and adding cuisine and meal type is a snap. You can find just the recipe you're looking for by sorting according to favorites, cuisine type, meal type, or main ingredients. Or you can just search them, using full-text search.

Basil even makes cooking easier. Directions and ingredients are easy to read at a glance, and any time-based directions ("sauté for 5 minutes") are turned into buttons which start a timer, so you don't have to fumble with a separate timer. You can cross off ingredients as you cook, and Basil even converts units for you automatically.

Customer Reviews

Love this app!

Let's me save right from the browser and makes note of URL and pictures of what I'm cooking is supposed to look like ;) so very worth it. Have been using this for years now and never needed to look for another app to fill in any gaps. Keep up the good work!

Basil - Hit and Miss

I have been using this app for around two years. Used to love it. Now I just like it. It seems to be buggy lately - errors out and closes - losing whatever you're adding. It has now lost recipes on it's own. Not sure what's going on, but I'm going to start looking at other apps. I do hope the bugs get worked out of Basil, though.

Great App but need an iPhone version

I love the app. I can add recipes from anywhere on the web and categorize them as I please. My only complaint is they do not have an iPhone version, which would be very helpful since I don't always carry my iPad when cooking outside my home.
