Use your tablet or smartphone to increase the taste — and lower the cost — of your Thanksgiving dinner with FREE recipe apps. Here are the top five virtual cookbook recipe apps —
Epicurious: An award-winning food site with more than 28,000 recipes created and tested by professionals at top foodie magazines Gourmet and Bon Appétit, plus authors of popular cookbooks, top chefs, and leading restaurants. The free website and smartphone app also features a home screen “Recipe of the Day” widget and voice search.
All Recipes Video Cookbook: You might call this a cook-along app. Professionally produced videos show you recipes step-by-step. Pause, skip, and go back whenever you want. Ingredients are displayed prominently alongside the video for easy reference. iTunes only.
Gojee: This app recommends food and drink recipes from more than 200 of the world’s food and drink bloggers. You can personalize choices by what you like or dislike, including Vegetarian, Vegan, Gluten-Free and Non-Alcoholic. iTunes only.
Food52 Hotline: This is my kind of app, because it answers emergency kitchen questions and problems, such as pie crust too soggy, or how to make a gluten-free meatloaf from a recipe that calls for bread crumbs. The FOOD52 Hotline app was inspired by the famous Butterball Turkey Talk-Line, and delivers fast, personalized answers from experienced home cooks and well-known food authorities to all of your food and cooking questions. iTunes only.
Whole Foods Market Recipes: Lets you search by course, category or special diets, such as dairy free. All the recipes feature the natural and organic foods whole foods is known for. The app also lets you enter up to three items you have on hand to find recipes using those ingredients. iTunes only.
