Customer Reviews


I love this app. I needed an app to sort and sort my own recipes. I have been using this app for years. It is one of my most used apps. I can see where some may struggle with entering recipes but make a little effort to learn how to copy and paste from web pages and it is easy enough. Look at the support page for instructions on how to use your computer to enter recipes.

My only fear is that this app has not been updated for a couple of years and I'm afraid my extensive collection is in danger of getting lost to an out of date app.

By Far, The Best Recipe App

I love this application, as any cook (or chef) would.

It has all of my favorite recipes and all of our "family" recipes, and, it's on my iPhone and my iPad.

A few added features, simple, but useful to any good cook, would make this app a 5-star plus!

It really needs: Multiple categories for certain recipes. That would be great. As an example; Mac 'n Cheese could be under a side dish and a pasta dish. Add hours AND minutes to cooking times. Some recipes call for overnight marinating - - while that is inactive cooking time, or, prep time - it is still time.

In a perfect world, a section to add a suggested (or favorite) wine, or two, would be great. Most good recipes have one or two ideal wines that pair well - it would be great if there was a place to add them . . .

Maybe soon?

Love this app

Great app, especially if you have MasterCook or Living cookbook programs. Thank you for all your hardwork. And, if y'all like this app, don't forget to donate.
