A great reference for recipes of all kinds. The users leave helpful reviews, for the most part. Only negative is that a lot of the recipes are not proofed, and can be misleading if not read carefully, in full, before you start cooking. The app's functionality is solid.

Great recipes for all ethnicities, styles, even the options for gluten, egg, dairy, wheat, etc. free, just so many varieties to make the best meals you ever could for any guest or family member!

The best recipe app I've ever used. As a matter of fact it is the only recipe app I use. I recommend it to anyone who cooks at all or who wants to be a better cook.

I have made so many recipes from here! I love how it creates my grocery list for me! Just makes my life a bit easier 😊

Overall decent app. It does not have the same features as the website. The Planner is missing. The grocery list is great but it is the only way to access planned meals. Please fix this.
