Five Cooking Apps that Will Help Meals Become Easier

Cooking; you can probably be taught to do it well, but some of us just aren’t that good at it. That’s, not to say we don’t try, it’s merely to say that we just don’t have the patience, skill or desire to put forth additional effort. However, now that there is an app for everything (really, there is an app for everything) there is no reason we can’t all be better cooks. These five apps are certain to make cooking easier for even the most amazing chefs, and especially us not-so-amazing chefs.


What’s awesome about this app is the filters. There are so many of them that you’ll be able to find recipes for anything at anytime. Want something delicious but haven’t been shopping in a while? Simply choose recipes that contain things you have around the house and it will tell you exactly what you can make with what you have.


An app that lets you choose a main ingredient and the amount of time you want to spend in the kitchen sounds like a dream come true. That’s exactly what this app provides for users. You enter what you want to eat, how long you feel like spending in the kitchen and BAM! Dinner recipes magically appear on your phone. It’s beyond cool.
