Will miss this app a lot! Best kitchen companion ever!t

Now u get rid of this tool instead of reading reviews! I finally understand y people hate ur products. U do not listen to customer reviews! This app was the best recipe keeper I've ever used and u get rid of it? Hated the added recipes collection but continued using this cause I had faith u would fix it. I now realize I was wrong. Msoft, u do not listen. Might have to switch to an iphone:-(

Awesome app

Love this app. No other in the store searches all recipe sources, saves favorites, allows edits, add my own, share and is universal so my collection Is on any of my devices any time I need them. Too bad app is discontinued. Hopefully someone will develop a new one based off this app or ms will decide to keep now that win 10 is reaching more people.

App shut down not a big loss

The app in itself is not a big loss - the time it takes to keep recipes and change them to a usable format is. This app started out excellent, but it was evident that Microsoft neither updated nor supported it for the better. It kept going downhill. MS' way of shutting down the app fares no better. Recipes can be printed to the XPS viewer. I printed all my recipes to the XPS viewer yesterday with a very nasty surprise. All my folders and files in Documents changed to read only. I'm not a technician, so it took me awhile to figure out what was wrong and then reverse it. XPS viewer files are a pain to change to Word files in order to be able to edit, change, annotate them. A poor way to treat your customers, Microsoft!

Great app

Love this app and find it very useful in menu planning. The ability to add recipes to a meal and a collection is a timesaver. Also like the ability to add my own recipes. The shopping list syncs from my surface to my Windows Phone where items can be checked off. A great example of using technology to improve ones life

Do not get rid of this app!

This is the best wow demo for customers when choosing Windows of competitors. When someone discovers it it becomes the go to app for food. This one of the apps my family actually uses on the desktop. Hands free mode is unreplacable

Great app

This app is awesome. Ive been using this app for a while, not to mention the times I just browse for food ideas as a kid. I grew up with msn and windows. So there app are like second nature. I hope this isn't one of the apps closing. I want to stay with msn and windows but with all these changes idk where they might go next. If anything I hope there will be a function where I could download my own books and recipes with out manually adding them, like a pic or something.

Sorry to see this go!

I loved the Food & Drink app for finding new recipes and ideas and ESPECIALLY for the hands-free use while cooking. I didn't use the diet log function very much because I was already using a different platform, but it did improve with time. The diet tracker is one function that the MS Band Health app really needs--a way to track/display calories consumed (not just burned). I'm going to miss this app a LOT!
