Thanksgiving Day is less than two weeks away and that means it is time to get ready for feasting on foods as far as your eyes can see, or as much as your waist can handle. Below are a few great smartphone applications that take the frustration out of cooking, helping you create a variety of delicious meals for you and your family.
1. All Recipes
First, to make good food, you have to know what food you want to cook. With the AllRecipes.com food application, you have a library of great recipes that will help you make a full meal and so much more. It’s easy to navigate, offers you selection based on ingredient or dish type, and there are even reviews, giving you an idea of what others though of their finished product.
Ever wonder how many pints are in a gallon? Or how many ounces are in a pound? Sometimes it’s tough to get ingredients precise when working on a complex recipe. The phone application, Kitchenator, takes the effort out of doing the math with an easy-to-use interface offering you weight conversions which give you the right amount of what you need, for any recipe.
Have you ever been in the middle of cooking and realized that you don’t have a certain ingredient? Or, the health nut inside of you decides you don’t want to use butter, so what is a great substitute? The handy smartphone app, Substitutions gives you a great idea what you can use when you don’t want to use what the recipe calls for. A great idea for last-minute recipes as well!
4. KitchenPad Timer
For those chefs who are multi-taskers, they want to make sure everything gets cooked to perfection. However, even the best chefs can sometimes lose track of timing. With the KitchenPad Timer, you can coordinate specific timers, for specific food items, giving you a glimpse of how long something needs to cook, all on one screen. Incredibly convenient and easy-to-use, the KitchenPad Timer application is the perfect solution for chefs of any skill.
