Customer Reviews

Fast, easy and all to familiar

The app works fine, but as someone who subscribed to CL back in the 2000s, then took a breaks and decided to give it another shot, I'm reminded of why I let my sub lapse. This is probably a great mag if you are a time-strapped working mom who just wants to get something on the table in under 40 minutes that is 1) at least partially home cooked, 2) reasonably healthy and 3) acceptable to picky kids and spouses. But the days when Cooking Light introduced me to all kinds of interesting, creative and international dishes are long gone. This is basically making Boston Kitchen comfort food at home, and very boring to anyone who actually enjoys cooking and is looking for inspiration. I can go through an entire issue without finding any recipe that tempts me to try it. All the good stuff is relegated to a "test kitchen" section and most of the rest involves pre-chopped, package ingredients. All props to the folks who are struggling to cook more of their meals, though: You are doing a fine thing! It's just that this mag is no longer for the more practiced home cook.

Very Disappointing

I agree with other reviewers on many counts, prime among them: 1) need to be able to read in landscape position; 2) when attempting to save, as a opposed to making a favorite, it takes me to MyRecipes. This would be ok if I was able to sign into that but the app will not let me. When I check MyRecipes separately I can sign in but the supposedly "saved" recipes are not there. 3) in the index of a magazine there is a spot to tap to access the more than "15,000" recipes but the app will not let me. The link comes up but consistently crashes without letting me put in anything for a search. This app has potential but is almost worthless as it is.

Great App! Falls short on searching

Not often do I feel apps like this are well thought out and function well. Only complaint is their searching function. It's a pain to get to and it directs you to the website which constantly crashes. It also does not allow you to save recipes from the searches. Would definitely be a 5 star if this worked!
