Bon Appétit with These Helpful Cooking Apps
Posted by Miles Carroll on July 23, 2014 (0 Comments)
Technology can definitely get in the way of a zen cooking experience but it can also work to your advantage as time savers and making eating healthier easier.
When I’m feeling stuck and need to get my creative juices flowing, I’ll often check my pantry and fridge, note ingredients and type them into epicurious.com and boom! Hundreds of recipes at my disposal. For example, let’s say you have pineapple and chicken. Within seconds I have access to a 1961 recipe from House & Garden Magazine for Chinese Pineapple Chicken, Cardamom Chicken with Mint from Bon Appétit, Chicken Curry from Gourmet, a Pineapple-Glazed Chicken with Jalapeño Salsa and the list continues.
Another super helpful app I’ve been into lately is Fooducate. It contains a wealth of information and user feedback. If you're trying to change your eating habits and eat healthier with less additives and better ingredients, try Fooducate. At the market you can scan items and it will pull up the exact item and list all the nutrition facts and any user comments about the product.
iFood.tv offers approximately over 500 specific channels and 40,000 recipe videos to help improve your cooking skills and satisfy your culinary curiosity. This app works great if you like watching video while you follow along in your own kitchen, and of course, check out The Spicy Gourmet videos and cook along with Dinesh.
Hope these help! Bon Appétit, friends.
