Editors’ Notes

With its gorgeous photos and step-by-step instructions, this compilation of more than 15,000 recipes from The New York Times’ vaults belongs in every kitchen. We love how easy it is to save and search for recipes, and themed collections like “Easy Cakes,” “Beer Cocktails,” and “A Taste of New Orleans” are a mouth-watering delight. The app also features dozens of short instructional videos on topics like trussing chicken and julienning peppers—perfect for novice chefs eager to dive in and start cooking.


Used to love it, but not any more.

I've used this app for a very long time and loved it, but now it won't allow me to organize any of my recipes into my collections. It asks me to sign in, and when I enter my NY Times subscription ID and password it just gives me the eternal circling wheel. I've written twice to customer support. They replied the first time with a "solution" that showed they did not understand my problem. When I replied clarifying my issue, they simply ignored me. A few months ago I would have given this app 5 stars, but now I can only give it 3. Very disappointing.
I wrote the above review a few months ago and today when I tried to write a new review it made me re-send the prior one. So, since I now have a new complaint I’m adding it to the old review. The above problem was resolved after my initial complaint. But now, for the past few weeks when I receive my regular email from NYTimes Cooking and I want to view one of the recipes from it, I am required to sign in EVERY TIME. Once I do that, view and save the recipe and then return to the email to continue looking through it, and I select a different recipe FROM THE SAME email, I am forced to sign in ALL OVER AGAIN. Clicking on the Remember me button is worthless. I do not have this issue with my computer, nor with my iPad. It is only on my iPhone where I have been successfully using the app for years until now.
So I’m dropping my rating to two stars.

Reviewers Bake what is written!

I absolutely love the NYT’s. cooking app! It gives me guidance on baking or cooking things I might not try otherwise or that are outside my comfort zone. I also love that I can keep recipes in my ‘recipe box,’ but, better still I can save it in to a file, or any number of different files in my recipe box. For example, today’s apple cake recipe is saved into, Baking, Baking with Fruit and Alternatives to Favorites; as I have a few other go-to apple cake recipes. I use the recipes as a starting point from which to cook or bake, making any changes I like. I can then save those changes as a note that everyone can see, or a private note that only I can see. I do have one peeve about that: reviewers who change so many aspects of the recipe, they really haven’t made it at all; who then make notes saying it was great or good, or bad, based on all the things they changed. They have not made that recipe, so why comment? Just make your own notes and leave the rest of us to enjoy and gain knowledge from a singular change like, ‘I felt it needed some salt’ or ‘it took much longer (or less) time to bake. I guess what I’m saying is, maybe the NYT should think about editing the notes, beyond the ‘All’ and ‘Most Helpful’ categories. Maybe label some with ‘Not this recipe, at all, but you might want to try it.’
