Tried 3 times to add recipe

App looks interesting until you want to plan food. Tried 3 times to add recipe- no save button appear. I’m looking for menu planning for trip - this does not meet needs.

You shouldn't settle for just Ramen Noodles

...and this app makes sure you don't have to. We now eat like kings in the backcountry. The jambalaya, polenta w/chorizo chips and others are simple enough for a non-chef like me to prepare and cook after a full day's hike.

Warning: the food is so good that your fellow hikers will name you grubmaster for each trip.

Exactly what I needed

This is a great app for beginner backpackers on multi day treks. The food is great and exciting each day and there are a ton of options. Even if their recipes are not for you it will definitely give you a good idea of what is possible on the trail and more importantly, what's realistic.
