Sean came across this AMAZING app in the Android Market for people just like me! There are thousands of recipes ranging from easy and fast to world class chef. All the recipes are posted by average people and chefs. It's free to use unless you want to post a recipe or build a menu weekly and monthly or even create a shopping list. There is a small monthly fee of $1.99
When searching the recipes, you have the option to search by course, equipment, ingredient or lifestyle. There are several options to choose from in each category. Once you have found a recipe to try, you can add it to you "Try Soon" or "Favorites" box.
Once you've established a nice "Try Soon" list, its easy to search threw it and select a recipe to try. Just select a recipe by clicking on it. The recipe pops up with a picture, (Not everyone uploads them) brief description, reviews and nutrition tabs. If I like the picture, I click on the recipe and read the reviews before even reading the ingredients. The recipe tab has all the information you need to make the meal and even an option to post your own note and review. On the right side of the recipe, there are tabs to "Add to Plan" "Add to Grocery" "Add to Favorites" "Try Soon" and "Customize". If you didn't like the recipe, you can simply remove it from your list by unclicking the "Add to Favorites" tab. You also have the option to email the recipe, review it, print it, pin it on Pinterest, Facebook, create a shopping list or my favorite, create a weekly/monthly menu.
After using this app for a couple weeks, we are super happy with it. This is going to be my lifesaver during this home school year. Again it is available for Android, IPhone, IPad, Windows and is available online at BigOven.com. Once you create an account, you can use it on any device, anywhere! Try it out, you'll love it!
