You might be a foodie if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen. You might already cooking up ideas of what you’ll make for dinner the next night, or the perfect mix of flavors for a dessert you’re making for a gathering of friends this weekend. You might be a foodie if you find that people talk about you when it comes to food: they ask your advice, they want to know how you make certain things, and basically, peeps know you for your food.
Do you find yourself in some of the above examples? If so, the kitchen is probably among your happiest places, the place you escape to when you will need to regroup after a crazy day, eat some home cooking, and feel as if everything is right in the world again. Cooking is resourcefulness and common sense combined: being able to explore endlessly, while also taking advantage of things that just make sense– like thyme and rosemary, for example, or mushrooms and onions.
If you love to get out into that warm room and knead bread, cook pasta, make pies and experiment with new sauces, we think you might take pleasure in some of the following apps. From apps for folks that might want to expand their cooking awareness and experience (and need variety!) to inspiration and simple guides, we bet you’ll find at least one that you’ll be glad to learn about.
Even if you’re an aspiring cook that prefers to learn the best ways to mix flavors together or a seasoned cook that is bored of having to come up with new ideas of what to make for dinner, Blue Apron’s idea is an amazing one. They offer new procedures each week that make use of seasonal ingredients. You can receive meal plans every week for a party of two, or for a family of 4. Sign up for their service and get the ingredients for the week’s recipes rendered in a box to your door– no hassle of ascertaining what you’re wanting to make, and no need to run to the grocery store to do the shopping. Everything comes in the box, all set to go. If you’re going to be out of town, stop the service for when you’ll be away, and resume when you get home. The app boasts yummy photos, detailed instructions, and videos for certain instructional points, too. One of the things we think is accurate about it? You’ll get to try different recipes each week, and thus helping you to widen your flavor palate and your tried and true recipes won’t lose their favorite status by being made frequently.
If you’re that person that pores over photos of food in Martha Stewart Living, Bon Appetit and Cook’s Illustrated, check out this app. For real … talk about photos that will make you want and salivate to put the apron on right now!!! This is a great go-to app for inspiration when you’re trying to decide what to make– whether you need a great new cookie recipe, some pasta, a crowd-pleasing beef dish, or something tasty to eat for breakfast.
This is an effective spot to put your faves all in one spot: from bring in the ones you love from the Internet to personally entering the recipes your family has loved for several years. At the same time, the app makes things easy to plan menus for the week or month and set all together shopping listings so you really don’t forget those things you need for the next time you’re in the kitchen.

Think of this app as the Instagram for food, and nothing else. Where Foodgawker’s app brings you tons of yummy photographs and you can search by category and have access to tons of recipes, Food52’s app is like an IG feed where users upload photos of stuff they’ve made and simply list the ingredients.
