Must have for home cooks

This is easily my most go to app on my iPad and iPhone. It's semi-editable shopping list feature makes it easy to create and adjust my shopping list so I never forget anything or buy something I already have while at the store. My only wish is that it could combine like items from multiple recipes instead of just listing it again. The easy import feature makes it a snap to import recipes from the web, it even includes the photo! The syncing feature seamlessly keeps my iPhone version up to date so I don't have to take my iPad shopping with me and I especially love that I can access my recipes without having to be connected. It's easy and reliable. I recommend it to anyone who loves to cook.


Update: Thank you so much for fixing the bluetooth keyboard problem that caused the measurements bar not to come up when the on-screen keyboard didn't show up. Now, the bar pops up automatically when I connect my keyboard to type and I can enter my measurement symbols without having to turn my keyboard on and off continuously. Thanks!!!

I love this app! It makes it so easy to collect and share your favorite recipes. I particularly like the fact that it's not clogged up with a whole bunch of recipes I will never use, just the stuff I actually want. And at the top of my list of favorite features is the ability to customize my own categories.

Great Purchase! Love it!

I really love this app. I like how easy it is to transfer recipes and lists to my phone app. I also love how it looks. I am always using it for figuring out my weekly meals. I chose my meals,add ingredients to grocery list. Then I bookmark the recipes for the week. Then when I have completed the meals that week I just take it off bookmark. This is an easy way for me to find and save my meals for that week. I am truly glad that I purchased this app. I really like how the recipe is highlighted for each step. This makes it so easy to follow. Would love a way to plan meals for a month.
