How Recipe Management Apps Can Help You Win this Holiday Season

by Pam Silvia

Create a one-stop recipe hub

If you’ve ever relied on a handwritten recipe, then you know the struggle: illegible scrawls, smudged directions or worse—you’ve accidentally thrown away the sacred text for making your mom’s mac-and-cheese casserole. But fear not! Recipe management apps help keep all of your favorite recipes in one place, rendering your scattered note cards and Post Its of step-by-step instructions relics of the past.

Tap into your inner chef by downloading ChefTap, the free app designed to organize your recipe library. Boasting an expansive recipe search tool, ChefTap also offers the ability to digitize your old family recipes. And most importantly, the app’s accessible navigation shows that going high-tech doesn’t have to be a stressful venture—in this case, doing so can save you from the stress that comes with figuring out what’s for dinner.

Customize online recipes to suit your taste buds

Sometimes, following a recipe to the letter can leave you with underwhelming results. If you’re one to experiment in the kitchen (or are simply someone who likes to add extra salt and pepper to everything), the Paprika Recipe Manager app indulges your recipe-altering whims by letting you log notes to recipes you collect online—it even lets you bolden, italicize, and attach links and photos to recipe text.

Picky eater at your dinner table? There’s an app for that. With an impressive array of filter options, the Yummly app makes it easy to find recipes that match a variety of criteria, allowing you to narrow your search by cook time, type of cuisine, diet, allergies and more! In addition, this recipe management app will start recommending recipes following a few searches, getting to know your taste.

Compile a recipe book with ease

Spice up your life, and download Pepperplate! Hailed by home cooks for its easy-on-the-eyes tablet view and built-in timers, this app makes cooking ambitious holiday dinners a breeze. With Pepperplate, you can also customize your library by creating unlimited categories and sync your recipes across your computer, smartphone and tablet devices.

Pinterest foodies, rejoice! The aforementioned Paprika Recipe Manager and ChefTap make it easy to drag and drop recipes into your mobile library, allowing you to build a collection without the hassle of copy-paste.
