The iPad brought a revolution to food lovers and experimental cooks everywhere because of its touchscreen hardware and wealth of accommodating apps. Well, what better way to implement technology into your kitchen life than with free applications? We scoped three extremely helpful and utilitarian apps that will help you cook, bake, melt, marinate, and whatever else it is that you do in the kitchen, as well as keep tabs on your favorite recipe.
Most organizational apps are annoying because of how much memory they take just to fire them up, but a dedicated app for your food endeavors could be just what you need to get inspired in the kitchen. Measuring Cup is a pretty wonderful, straightforward freeware piece of software that organizes your many recipes in so many ways. Each recipe can contain sub-recipes, which are variations of the primary recipe you have open (For example: three cheese grilled cheese, and then a sub-recipe of three cheese grilled cheese with added ingredients). You can also create very specified ingredients list with individual notes for each of the items, as well as attach pictures to each entry, which might even inspire you to become a food photographer.
If you've got a reliable internet connection, the Epicurious iPad app has loads of recipes for even the most novice of cooks. This popular app has dual-platform integration, so you can use it on both your iPad and iPhone or iPod touch. You can create shopping lists and then email them to yourself or others, browse through tons of recipes, and even view the nutritional information of each dish. Additionally, each recipe tells you how long it takes to make so you can set aside the right amount of time to prepare a delicious meal. And, you can even read the reviews on each meal and see what others had to say about the recipe.
San Francisco School of Bartending
Let's leave the food behind for a minute and visit that other ingredient that pairs so well with food--alcohol. If you've ever needed a really simple bartending app, the San Francisco School of Bartending application will provide for you just that. The app contains a myriad of drink categories and recipes that are taught in the school in an extremely easy-to-follow flash card format. Flip through each drink recipe to study and memorize them yourself. You can even filter out which drinks to keep out of the random flash card pile, or individually search through each drink recipe contained in the app.
