Valley App of the Week: Epicurious

Posted: Updated:

Epicurious is an app version of the popular and award winning food site by the same name.

This app is for all things cooking and can do pretty much everything but dice your onions for you.

With more than 30,000 recipes from top cooking magazines, cookbooks and world renowned chefs. There's a little something for everyone.

When you open it up the home page features one of my favorite tools, the categories. Some change with the season like "bridal showers" and "picnic ideas" others are perfect anytime of year like "I can barely cook" and "lunches kids love."

You can also search by ingredient, or type of cuisine, like you know you want italian but want to try something new, or even dietary considerations to find great options for specific needs like low carb or low salt.

Once you find a recipe you like you can add it to your favorites, send it to your Facebook page or add to shopping list.

This is my favorite feature. Plan a whole meal or even a week of meals and with the click of a button you know exactly what you need to pick up at the store.

Epicurious even sorts the list by fresh produce, dairy, canned items so you can check each off by section of the market.

Once you get the ingredients Epicurious is very easy to use while your cooking. Just flip your phone sideways and it you get a step by step guide to making a great dish.

If you have an Epicurious.com account you can sync your favorites from it to your phone but they will charge a one time fee of $1.99.

There is a drinks section. I didn't check that out much because I have a bartender app that I prefer, but friends have said they like it and you can find some unique cocktail options.

If you want to download Epicurious just click here.  Then let us know what you think at our Valley News Live Facebook Page, or post your app ideas for our next review.
