Select a delicious dish

Select a delicious dish. When you find a recipe you like, tap it to see the overview, which includes a photo, check out the ingredients, and look at the preparation details. Then easily add all ingredients to your shopping list, save the recipe to your Recipe Box, or even share it with a friend. Each recipe includes all of the details you need to create the dish as well as activities you can do ahead of time and notes for substitutions and other helpful tips.

More handy features. When you save dishes to your Recipe Box, you can then sort them by relevance, rating, photo, or alphabetically. There are also options to search for something specific or delete those you no longer want. The app provides a convenient shopping list which lets you add more items you might need, sort the list by aisle or recipe, send it via email, and remove purchased items.
