So we all know how much I love Bittman's big red cookbook, and for those of you who know me well, you also know how much I love my iPad. Now the two have come together in the How To Cook Everything App for the iPhone. I can't really say enough about this app. It is everything the cookbook is and then some! You can search for recipes by ingredient (i.e. fresh bread crumbs), use the built in timers, make grocery lists with the recipes you are planning to cook. You can even save and name grocery list for future occasions.
One of the neat features in the grocery list department is that you can see what recipe each item is coming from. That way if the grocery store is out of a particular item, you know what recipe will be short and you can make the necessary substitutions.
There are plenty of online reviews out there so I'll stop mine here. One thing to note about all the online reviews that I read is that they all gave this app a 4.5 or 5 stars! Also I just read, "...the kind people at Culinate tell me that there will be a future app just for the How to Cook Everything Vegetarian book. They also report they are working on an iPad specific version of the HTCE app." I hope when the iPad version comes out they will discount it for those of us that are using the iPhone version on our iPads!
