    "Awesome recipes and even calculates them by how many servings you need! It has so many different meal ideas for me to cook for my family. Sometimes I just gravitate to the typical meatloaf, or spaghetti. This takes the worry out of meal planning. This is great too because I can grab the phone and go grocery shopping off of the ingredient list."

    "Escoffier Cook's Companion offers a stylish timer, measurement conversion, ingredient glossary and more. The equipment lists provide a nice visual reference with tips for using, cleaning and storing utensils and common kitchen tools. The app is meant as a guide for home chefs, but could even prove useful in a commercial kitchen. "

    "This is a great app to impress your significant other with. There are great instructional videos that walk you through making fantastic dishes for a great dinner in. Or you can the restaurant suggestions from some of the top chefs and have a great meal out. I've tried both and have been very impressed with the meals I've prepared and the restaurants that we have tried. "

    "Th Photo Cookbook is a useful app, but nowhere near among the best for chefs. Food and recipe apps are fairly popular, so there are a lot of choices, look elsewhere for the best of the best."
