    "Epicurious has always been a great resource, though I'm not so sure about for beginning cooks. Its beginner cooks genre has recipes but assumes that you already know the basics. I'd probably tell an asipring learning cook to go for another app that's geared exclusively for them."

    "Very nice and great for meal planning. The shopping feature is very helpful but kind of clunky and could use some work. Looking forward to more recipes being added soon. "

    "Ok I love this app. You can chat with other aspiring chefs, trade recipes, etc. And you can find recipes by ingredients, which is so useful. I hate having to scour for recipes on the internet and never knowing how good the dish will turn out. This has helped me immensely in the kitchen."

    "Others have told me that there isn't much variety in my diet, so I went looking for a useful cooking app and found BigOven. There's enough recipes that I doubt I could cook them all in my lifetime. There's also handy planning sections so my shopping trips are more efficient and I manage to use most of the groceries before they go bad. "
