I live by my iPhone! I rely on apps to do EVERYTHING. It can tell me what’s new and how to get there, what to cook and what I need to make it, even whats around me and exactly what to order! I occasionally make mention of my favorite apps (scoutmob, opentable, urbanspoon), but Us Weekly actually created their own list based on recommendations from Celebrity Chefs, which I thought I’d share with you…
-MARTHA’S EVERYDAY FOOD: FRESH & EASY RECIPES: For 99 cents, the app sends alerts for daily dinner ideas. And it uses your current location to find grocery stores near you! Why it’s hot: You can share your fave recipes on Facebook and Twitter.
-FOOD NETWORK IN THE KITCHEN: You can access 45,000 recipes from the network’s stars and new seasonal menus are updated each month ($1.99). Why it’s hot: Save favorite recipes in an online recipe box. Plus, use in-app timers to never burn a meal again!
-GORDON RAMSAY COOK WITH ME: Screaming fits not included! Outside of Hell’s Kitchen, Ramsay offers 56 recipes with guides and pictures ($7.99). Why it’s hot: The app offers wine pairings and an email function to invite to friends to enjoy the meal.
-NIGELLA QUICK COLLECTION: The kitchen goddess guides fans through 70 recipes with 40 minutes of video instructions ($7.99). Why it’s hot: You can make a shopping lists from recipes, then work through the recipes using voice control without even touching your phone.
