Ratings and Reviews

What a layout!!!


I'm still getting used to layout of the recipe page; it’s a bit too busy and congested for me but when I tap on the name of or the picture of the recipe and then tap on Make, the splendor of this app appears!! Tap on Make to see the pictured step-by-step directions, Tap on Ingred for a full list of the necessary ingredients, Tap on Info for more details like servings, time to prepare, time to bake or cook, a description and tags.

Once inside a recipe, each pictured step is accompanied by instructions. I like that the ingredients and equipment can be displayed either “one at a time” with each step of or in a list all at once.

A VERY handy option that need to be added: horizontal view with hands free swipe (like in Cookineo) or clap (like in Rachel Allen) to move to the next slide. Overall, this is a really good app that’s missing some key options.

Great upgrade!

This was one of my favorite cooking apps a couple of years ago, but I had mostly forgotten about it. I was so excited to discover the upgrade with a lot of fresh new features.
I am excited to make these old favorites again!
