Awesome recipe app, it was outdated for a long time and the search function didn't work but now the app has been redone and it looks and works great! You can even login and sync your recipe box from the website, no other recipe app on windows phone had this feature.

Latest Update is AWESOME!

This latest update offers all the things I've longed for in the Epicurious app for Windows: login with my Epicurious account so I can access my recipe box and shopping lists, printing of recipes (YAY!), and the hands-free voice-navigation in "cooking mode" REALLY WORKS! Great to see this app refreshed and updated; now with all my recipes and shopping lists synced to the cloud, this app is a great compliment the Epicurious app for my Windows Phone!

A great app - but only half way there

I love the broad selection of delicious menus, very well laid out. And the ease with which a shopping list can be created (even if it is just a list by recipe and the same list item in multiple precepts aren't combined into a single list). Help us organize our shopping with a weekly Meal Plan and a single, combined shopping list with unit costs input by the user. Having to use another tool to do that will make the user have to chose one of the other.

Epi Review

I love to use this app in the kitchen with my kids !

Overall this app is great. I have several dietary issues and I'm able to easily sort out the things I can't eat. The only thing is there isn't a dairy free option, something I feel is greatly lacking. If they add that it will be five stars!

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.

No Recipes in Windows 10 App!!

This version is very bad. Unlike the online access and iPhone app, the recipe box has no recipes in it that I've saved throughout the years. Must fix to make me want to continue using app on Windows 10 laptop.

Reducing to 2 stars because Recipe Box recently stopped working. It doesn't show any of my saved recipes here or in the Windows 8 app. I love Epicurious and the rest of the app is great, but without recipe saving it loses a lot of appeal. I like the grocery store reminder, but would be better if it only reminded me when I have items on my shopping list. Would also be cool if I could export my list to OneNote or Wunderlist

Instead of trying to tack on silly gadgets like a shopping list or photo-sharing, how about a search function that actually works or a recipe box that actually syncs? Probably the buggiest, least reliable app on my phone.
