Crazy for this app. ❤️ Cookbook

I went looking for an app that would streamline my recipe filing and enable me access to multiple recipes for a dinner party as I was sick having 5 books on the bench and difficult to use Pinterest boards! The app has revolutionised how I store and use my recipes and how I create shopping lists and plan my weekly menu. It’s incredible to be at the markets and discover a fresh ingredient is in season and to quickly refer to the app to find all the recipes I like to cook with that ingredient and know exactly what I need to buy. Saving recipes from online links is also a dream and means I have quickly built up a collection of 400 recipes to which I refer often. I have photographed all my old favourite recipes from different books and now all my recipes are in the one place - it’s a dream. I also use the app to plan our weekly menu to focus what we eat, be more healthy, and be more efficient with shopping. Finally, now that so many of my family and friends are also using the app we are constantly sharing recipes within the app in a way that is so efficient and easy. I couldn’t be more positive about my experience with CookBook. Karen, Sydney.

You make my life easier 🥰 thanks

I’ve downloaded several free and paid recipe apps over the years, and they’d done okay, but each tended to be good at one aspect but not all. However… The Cookbook App was the answer to all my “wants”. It gracefully takes care of every aspect of planning and creating mealtimes. It handles the process from collecting recipes, storing and categorising them, scheduling daily/weekly menus, creating specific shopping lists, through to a versatile and thoughtful platform for actually following the recipe. The best part is, that all of these ‘parts’ work beautifully in their own right and this app combines them to work seamlessly together. My favourite part is the money and time I’ve saved from using the meal planning and shopping lists, the $avings far outweigh the cost of the app. I’m purchasing only & exactly what I need for the week, and my grocery bills are shockingly cheaper, just what we all need right now :-) I always recommend this app to friends and now have a community of mates to share recipes with.

So intuitive and easy to use

Have been using this app for years, and it is still my go-to for recipe storage. You can enter recipes manually of course, but the features to transfer a recipe from a website are the absolute best bit - just enter the URL and it does all the work - finds the photo, ingredients, method steps, even a link to the video if there’s one included on the webpage. Love that I can take my favourite recipes with me wherever I go - if I’m on the train and find a good recipe it takes under a minute to pop it in on my phone, and then I can get it up on my iPad when I’m home. And being a bit of a messy cook, it’s great that food splashes just wipe off my iPad!! Highly recommend.
