One of the most useful things an iPad assists me with is using it as a recipe book and cooking aid. It is so useful that I actually utilize my first generation iPad, after I upgraded, as a dedicated cook book. The iPad sits in my kitchen on my FlexHolder and used regularly as I and my wife cook dinner. The most important thing we needed was an app that worked to download recipes and also allow us to put in family recipes that have been in the family over generations. What we found was Paprika. Paprika allows us to input recipes, download them from sites like Epicurious, All Recipes, The Pioneer Woman and many more sites with one click. It works like this. Paprika has a browser within it that lets you search the sites and if you find the perfect pumpkin bread recipe you can click save and Paprika does the rest. The recipe is saved and formatted for you already. There is no tedious inputting of the recipe. In seconds you can go from download to cooking. Using your family recipes requires a little effort but it is well with it once the information has been added. You also have options to create meals months in advance to take the worry out of planning. The best feature of Paprika is the ability to create a shopping list from the recipes you choose and email that list to your iPhone. Once at the grocery store you can click off each item using a check box and each item is categorized into aisles at the store. By far Paprika takes the edge off cooking and shopping for your ingredients making cooking fun again.
Our FlexHolder is the perfect kitchen gadget too!
