Here’s the Apps.

I’m pretty good about cooking most of my meals at home during the week, so I depend on apps, websites, and blogs to keep me inspired with new recipe ideas and easy planning tips. Here’s a roundup of our favorite recent apps:

Epicurious: The Cook’s Companion
price: free

The motherlode of recipe compilation, this app is filled with recipes for all occasions and meals – most of them straight from the pages of world-class food magazines like Bon Appetit and Gourmet. Each recipe includes an easy-to-read shopping list and user reviews. (Hint: Try the Roasted Pears with Blackberries, Ricotta, and Lavender Sugar!)

Whole Living Smoothies
price: $0.99

This unique app is all about delicious (ahem, Pear and Avocado) and restorative smoothies. For less than a dollar, you’ll have inventive smoothie recipes at your fingertips, including allergen-free and detox options. The photography is beautiful, and the app includes how-to videos and nutritional information.

EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry
price: free

This recipe app features gorgeous photos. I also love that the recipes have been professionally developed (so they’re bound to be tasty) and never feature processed ingredients. Best of all for a girl on the go, all of the recipes on the app can be prepared in less than an hour!

If only I could view them on something like this!
