Top cooking apps

September 11, 2015

First off, thank God for these apps. I usually have trouble coming up with new dishes and usually have to cook the same thing. Now, I can choose what I want to cook with the help of an app. I’ll also preface by saying all these apps are accurate in their directions and ingredients, the only difference lies in the amount of details and available options. So, naturally, I’ll begin with my favorite app of all.


This app is among the top cooking apps worldwide, which is good because it has made the app very robust. Choice of dishes is very wide, even with a single dish, so for example you made a search for deviled eggs, you would get over ten suggestions on how to make them.

Details are crucial for every meal, and I like how the app tells you the amount of calories in every dish. Additionally, while setting up, you can set your dietary preference and taste, for example paleo, vegetarian, vegan, etc. As the app suggests favorable meals, these settings will ensure they fit your taste. Also important is allergies, which you can also input and the app will filter searches and suggestions to avoid what you’re allergic to.

You can already see the developers really put in the time to make the app complete, and then they went a step further, shopping lists. After searching a meal you really want to make, just add the ingredients to the shopping list and it groups the ingredients into aisles you might find at your local supermarket. I just love this feature and I know you will too, it simplifies your job and you can even synchronize the lists with another device. If you want your hubby to do the shopping, just sync the shopping list and you’re done.


There are still some other pretty popular apps in the Play Store you might like, maybe even prefer. A good one is Allthecooks Recipes, which is also pretty popular, and I’ve never not found a recipe after making a search. Unique in this category are Allrecipes and Food Network which give you video instructions although the latter only works on tablets.

Like I said before, all these apps are accurate and just as effective in giving instructions, they are just not as robust as Yummly is.

Now to the kitchen

I’m heading off to the kitchen now, all this writing about food has made me hungry. I’ll leave you with this: Take time enough for your meals, and eat them in company whenever you can. There is no need for hurry in life—least of all when we are eating.
