Customer Reviews

A great help

This app is one of the few I use daily. The meal planning suggestions have helped me avoid that 4:30 pm panic about what to fix for dinner many times. I don't cook everything in Sam Sifton's suggestions every week, but I usually find at least one or two recipes to add to my own ideas for weekly meal planning. The recipes are as diverse as New York itself, ranging from familiar comfort foods to elegant classic French cuisine, to more exotic Middle Eastern, Asian and African dishes, which are familiar comfort foods in other places. The dessert recipes are amazing!

Recipes are clear and easy to follow. It is a great help to be able to pull up a recipe on my tablet, and to be able to read and follow it without wasteful printing. Plus, the printing function works well, for those who would rather spill on paper than on delicate electronics.

The recipe ratings and reviews can be sorted by most helpful. Favorite recipes can be saved and organized, which is good, because my list of favorites is becoming unwieldy.

Others have mentioned price of the app. Considering the hundreds of dollars I would otherwise spend on cookbooks from these authors, it is a real bargain. Add in the recipe search functions, and the fact that it takes up no more room in my overstuffed bookcases, and it quickly becomes indispensable.

I LOVE this app!

I love this app--it's so convenient to have so many recipes (and ideas) so readily available. The feedback and conversation about almost every recipe is tremendously helpful--and having access to these recipes--including some that I've saved to my recipe box from elsewhere--on my phone is incredibly useful--easier than hauling the laptop around (do I really want that in my kitchen anyway?) and beats printing out endless pieces of paper. My only regret is that the columns that come with the recipes aren't up here too--but I'm realistic enough to believe that might be impractical in this space.
I'm sorry there are folks who are upset about having to pay a bit--quality journalism isn't free. I've subscribed to the Times online for years--it's not that expensive AND you get the newspaper as well as this treasure trove of cooking ideas.

A Favorite App

One of my favorite apps. Attractive, engaging, useful. If it is 5:30 PM and I don't know what to cook for dinner I just open the app. Searching is easy, featured recipes give me ideas, saved recipes in my box are always accessible and they help.

A huge shout out to one of the recipe riders, Melissa Clark, whose palate is similar to mine and who writes wonderful easy to follow recipes.

In my experience, most of these recipes require no more than 15 to 30 minutes of prep time and list ingredients that are easily obtainable and may well be around the house. If I don't have an ingredient I usually find a substitute in the house or find that even using a few of the ingredients and the general suggestion of the recipe is enough to make a good meal. It's the combinations of ingredients and a few techniques that make the dishes taste terrific.

Thank you New York Times!
