Today at 1pm EST Apple will be announcing some big news about it’s iPad 2 Release. And all of us foodies, at-home cooks and wannabe Martha Stewarts out there should be quite excited. Just think, an iPad carries the possibility of being like an instant full color live-streaming cookbook that you can mount on your kitchen wall or prop onto a stand and review blogger recipes or Apps right next to your cutting board – while you chop the onions and stir the risotto. High-tech kitchen bliss I tell you. Now the only catch is that you will need to buy one of the new swanky iPad 2 devices (the first iPad retailed for $499 – $829). That’s more than my Vitamix! But if you are dreaming of strolling Babble’s Family Kitchen recipes and your fave food blogs right in your kitchen, this may be the device for you!
Dear Steve: Can I get that in a flour-proof, waterproof, high heat-proof, sticky-kitchen-hands-proof version?
Check out this list of Recipe iPad Apps to get you excited..
I love Apps. Going to the Apple App Store is like strolling the cosmetics-section aisles of a drug store. Everything looks so fun and “live-changing” .. yes I said that with slight sarcasm, and you can try a few goodies, Apps, eyeshadows for a pretty reasonable price. And the App Store has plenty of foodie-friendly delights.
iPhone Apps. I was excited to release two iPhone Recipe Apps last year: Smoothies! and Dip Diva. I have been thrilled by the feedback from people who have downloaded them. Smoothie recipes in-hand, in-kitchen? Delicious! I’m really hoping to develop a recipe App for the new iPad 2 in the coming year, so stay tuned!
