I love to cook and I love to find new recipes, but life doesn’t always give me the time and resources for either. There are simply days when I don’t have the time to find something new to cook up or forget the grocery list on the kitchen table when I’m headed to the grocery store. However, I have found a few neat smart phone apps to download on my 4G Phone Samsung Exhibit that have made keeping my kitchen table full of delicious dishes a little easier.
I love to look for new recipes to try, but I don’t always have the time to sit down at my computer or at my kitchen table with a cookbook to look for recipes. That’s where Epicurious comes in. No matter where I am at, I can quickly scan the app for a new recipe and plan for it later. No longer do I have to worry about serving the same dishes each week. I can have something new and exciting prepared without having to exude much effort.
My Grocery List
I hate it when I get to the grocery store only to realize that I’ve left the grocery list on the counter, especially after having to make that long drive. It drives me nuts. Well instead of having to keep one of my kids or husband on the phone while I scour the aisles looking for what I need, I simply plug the list into my phone through MyGroceryList. I take my phone everywhere so when I decide to shop, my list is right there. No need to worry about leaving the list at home anymore.
Now this may seem a little counter-intuitive for when you are walking the grocery store aisles, especially when you cook some of the decadent desserts that I like to, but it does help me create a few more healthy meals. Instead of typing in what I have eaten for the day, I enter in dishes that I plan on preparing into the meal finder and get an estimate of the total calories contained in a meal. It’s pretty nifty, and it keeps use from having to add notches in or belts or buying new ones altogether.
Cooking and food have always been passions of mine. However, as life got more hectic, taking the necessary time out of my day to enjoy these passions became more and more difficult. With a few easy-to-use apps, I have been able to enjoy my passions once again without having to use large portions of my day. When cell phones came out, I thought they were great. Now, I think they are absolute life savers.
