And here’s one for the food geeks. Everyone loves to eat; and the aroma of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies is enough to uplift the spirits of the most tired and depressed souls nearby. It is very rightly said that a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. But not all of us share the enthusiasm for elaborate preparations to make the food that makes our tastebuds dance with joy.
It’s impossible to have an instruction manual handy with you in the kitchen for every recipe you crave; therefore, we often resign ourselves to potato chips and terrible microwaveable foods. So here’s a cool little Android app that amalgamates those millions of recipe books that our mums picked up from the book store all into one unified cooking experience and get us one step closer to the irreplaceable taste of their cooking.
Recipe Search is an Android app that offers over 150,000 recipes and finding then is even easier. Just type in the name of the ingredients you have and it gives up a list of food items with those spices and flavours in it. That’s not all, other than just food items it also gives:
- side dishes,
- diet recipes,
- main dishes,
- stews and
- Ethnic recipes.
To give you a clear idea of what the All the Cooks app looks like, these are its core filters.
