Makes meal planning a breeze!

My husband and I are really enjoying this app. We went straight for the premium option, as we really liked the idea of the app making our grocery list for us. And $20 a year seemed very worth it. The grocery list it makes is very complete and easy to use.

The six recipes we've tried have been tasty, and it's great to be able to change the number of servings if you need to. I added a recipe from the web, too, and it worked very nicely.

The only thing that doesn't work well is the nutrition info. On several recipes, all the data isn't there, so the calorie counts are artificially low. However, there are plenty of free apps if you need nutritional info. Just take the nutrition info provided with a grain of salt!

Use this every week

We use this app every week. It's very helpful. On the weekends I plan our meals for the week, and build the grocery list. I either find recipes in the app or add to the app from recipes I find elsewhere. Then I can use the app to open the recipe and make the dish. I can mark recipes as favorites or ones that I want to try in he future.

I wish the grocery list feature would let me create and store my own categories of locations in the store, as I think the default ones are too granular for my shopping style. Sort of like a list template that fits your store and is saved from week to week. I work around the problem by creating my own categories then listing a placeholder in each category that I don't check off every week. If it had list templates, this would be a five star app.

Big Oven App

I love Big Oven! I use it all the time for ideas and storing recipes. The grocery list is also fantastic. My wife and I both add things that we would like to make and then we just add it to the grocery list and check off things that we don't need. I keep this app on my iPhone and my iPad and even use it on the internet from my computer. I would recommend this app to anyone that likes to cook or is just learning how to cook. It has great recipes for the beginner to the expert. You can even add pictures to other peoples recipes to show how they turned out. Feel free to look me up on the app and try some of my recipes and I bet you will fall in love with it too!
