I bought this app because I Love the cooking light website and the recipe box. I assumed that this would just be an app form of the recipe box but I was wrong. It is very limited in it selection and there is no search feature for me to find my favorite recipes. I would be very happy if the app were an extension of the recipe box feature on the website. I feel like I paid for something I could have gotten for free elsewhere. And I'm going to just continue using the recipe box online. Please consider making the app into an extension of the recipe box. That's such a great and helpful tool, and making it into an app would be wonderful and well worth buying.

Needs a lot of improvement

This has the potential to be a great app--I like how it suggests meals for you, and I would've given it 5 stars if it were a free app. BUT it needs so many more improvements to be worth the price I paid for it.

It needs a search feature, at least for suggestions for different meals, if searching for a specific recipe is never going to be an option. For example, I'd like to be able to log in and search through breakfast recipes in the morning, and get some suggestions. As of now, you can only see dinner entree, side, and dessert suggestions.

I also follow the cooking light diet, so being able to track my recipes for the week on my phone (without having to log into the actual website) would be awesome.

Please add some features to this app, and it will be great.

Love it!

Maybe I don't have a lot of expectations, but I'm surprised that this App isn't rated higher. I use it all the time to plan menus for the week. I've made great meals and I love that I can mix it up a bit. I rarely make the desserts, but I've tried many of the entrees, and side dishes. All I want is a good recipe that is not complicated and delivers good-great tasting food, and I've gotten this from this App. This is my first go-to App when I'm in a rush and need something that will deliver a good meal. This along with my Cooking Light Magazine App are what get me through the week with good health meals.
