    "The food network app is pretty useful when it comes to finding cooking related things like recipes and videos. I like it because you don't have to spend a whole bunch of time surfing through youtube to find great recipes to try. It goes over each step in detail and lets you see what the finished product should look like."

    "BigOven is a great iPhone app for holiday cooking. There are so many recipes and you can use the Grocery List to make sure to get all of the ingredients you need for any of the recipes. I particularly enjoy the Use Up Leftovers to make something with what I have available in the fridge. It has seasonal collections so that you can be sure that you can make something special for any holiday meal."

    "I'll be honest, I'm not the best cook... my friends honestly dreaded going to my house to eat if I was cooking. After using this for awhile though, it seems I might be the most popular eating joint with my friends ever since! By far my favorite recipe in here is the Eggs Benedict. I cook it a few times a week, and it is just divine! This book has transformed my cooking skills, and I'd recommend it to everyone!"

    "I was looking into some recipes to cook for the holidays. This will be one of the few holidays I will be spending alone and I didn't want to make a large meal. After looking through countless recipe apps I came across OpenTable. It gave me the simple of idea of going out for dinner. I was able to book and manage reservations no issue. I'm still using it beyond the holidays. While it wasn't the solution I was looking for, it worked out pretty well in the end."
