Now that I have an iPad I’ve started cooking and I can’t tell you how convenient it is having my device right in the kitchen propped up on an Apple iPad stand. I’m a terrible cook so pulling a recipe from an app and watching a how-to video is basically a foolproof way not to destroy dinner and end up eating spoons of peanut butter straight from the jar (again).
If you are like me and need help when it comes to cooking check out these amazing apps:
The Recipe Box. This simple app turns your iPad into that sous chef you’ve been looking for. The Recipe Box is customizable and has a great user interface that allows you to select recipes and even stream them to your Apple TV. $3.99 in iTunes Store.
All Recipes. All Recipes is your kitchen inspiration! This app is filled with thousands of member-tested recipes, ready for you to tackle with the help of mŌna. Free Version Available; $4.99 for Pro Version in iTunes Store.
The Betty Crocker Cookbook for iPad. This app helps you decide what’s for dinner. Let The Betty Crocker Cookbook turn you into the expert who’s been answering your kitchen questions for decades! Free, iTunes Store.
Feast. Feast is not an iPad app but it is one of the best online cooking
classes we have seen. Feast helps you find your way
around the kitchen while becoming part of a larger community of culinary
novices. Feast’s creator David Spinks’ goal is to help "the most average schmoe... become a more confident, badass cook.”
Starts at $60 for enrollment in online sessions. Live online classes and
archived video classes are also available.
So you have your iPad and you’ve installed the cooking apps, now you just need an iPad stand. Try mŌna, she will hold your iPad up and keep your hands free to work on whatever new recipe you’re trying out. With her compact size and a variety of viewing angles, mŌna works with ease for any ‘chef’ on the move. mŌna has become my favorite iPad accessory and has made the entire cooking endeavor that much more enjoyable.
