Top Cooking Apps for the iPhone, iPad, Kindle and Android

By Ole & Shaina Olmanson |

A new year is upon us. If you’re like many people, you’ll be thinking of New Year’s Resolutions and considering what yours will be for the coming year. May I urge you to consider cooking dinner more often? Did you know that “…Americans spend more time watching cooking on the Food Network, than actually preparing their own meals,” according to Dr. Hyman.

So, get off your duff, turn off the TV and get in the kitchen this year. Your family and your health will thank you. Plus, these apps for the Kindle and Android make it easy to get in the kitchen and have fun while doing it.

A great app for Michael Rhulman's book of the same name. It will give you the building blocks to make just about anything.

Of course, there are a few apps that aren’t available for anything but the iPhone. Such is life. However, if I had an iPhone, this is the one I would download without hesitation: How to Cook Everything from Mark Bittman.

    Can I suggest one? though I like these you’ve mentioned, my favorite bar none is Paprika. It’s iPad, iPhone, desktop versions sync, it’s easy to use and I can easily import recipes from all over.

    Thanks, Trey. It is listed on the Top 50 list, but I specifically chose apps that had at the very least both an iPhone and an Android option given the title of the post. :)
