My Recipe Book App for iPad

So…as a few of you may already know, I have an iPad 2. (The big boy behind my iPad is my lovely, lovely, lovely 27″ iMac here at work. I love him very very very much. I’m always trying to figure out how to take him home without being caught. Big sigh.)

I’ve downloaded a lot of free apps onto it…but by far my “favoritist” is a $2.99 app called MY RECIPE BOOK.

You can enter your own recipes (yeah!) or download recipes off of the internet. I’ve been a busy bee adding all of my recipes scribbled on scraps of paper. Once that is finished, I’ll tackle my favorite and most used recipes out of my cookbooks.

You just click on the + ADD RECIPE link on the left and it takes you to this screen:

After you add the name of your recipe, where it came from, basic yield, prep/cook times and categories ~ you click on the Ingredients and this nifty screen comes up:

You then add the amounts with what will remind you of a slot machine going around and the measurements with the ingredient’s name. You’ll hit save and add another until you are finished then hit save. That will bring you to the screen to type in your directions. Hit save and TA-DA!

Then when you hit the wee grocery cart:

You get a GROCERY LIST to take with you to the store! You can take the iPad with you or print it out. The neat thing about this app is, you don’t need to be on wi-fi or 3G to access it! 🙂 So if you’re at the store and can’t remember everything to make my beautiful friend April’s Zucchini Bisque? You can just tap on the recipe and there it is! 🙂

Well…this picture actually is the list for my sister-in-law’s Cranberry Relish. Hee.
