By Nancy

Chose this recipe because I only had white whole wheat flour and thought the sugar would help balance the taste. It was very easy to make and the crust was easy to roll out and handle. It browned very nicely and no one knew it was whole wheat flour. I will try again substituting the vegetable shortening with coconut oil. This has been the best recipe I've used for crust.

I have found the app to be completely unusable. Stick with their wonky website. At least you can manage your folders.

Great Recipes, Glitchy App

I love the selection of recipes on this app. They run from incredibly easy to quite complex but they are always great. However, the app is super glitchy for me. I haven't had it crash yet, but despite syncing with my account (I also have the app on my phone), nothing saves to my recipe box. Also, the "what to cook" function never seems to work either. I make it 5 or 6 selections in and it crashes. Like I said, I love the recipes available but I have found the app itself to be pretty bad.

easy cooking

I love the recipes and instructions. Also easy to share with my sisters. But, I have trouble going from Ipad to Lap top and finding things.

Doesn't work at all

Installed this app earlier today. Certain tiles load in it but clicking through them yields a forever loading wheel. "Recipe of the day" doesn't load at all and searching for recipes always yields "no results", even for a search as simple as 'rice'. This is garbage.

Epicurious app

It's an ok app... wish it provided more like a like tile on my laptop or personalized recipe alerts

Love it once, but now it doesn't work

I have always loved this app but recently all I get are spinning wheels as it tries to load. I uninstalled it and reinstalled thinking that might fix the problem, but alas, no such luck.

Great site!

A great place to find and try new recipes. Easy to use. Being able to save the favorites to a recipe box is the best.

Amazing recipes.

However I'm having the hardest time getting my recipe box to work, it may be the best cookbook I've come across.
