Ratings and Reviews
Throw out all the other cooking apps
I have had this app for a number of years and decided to finally write a review. I was impressed with the layout and the pictures of the food that I might cook (I don't have ads popping up so I must of bought Yum with the ad free). After using the app a number of times I started learning all the features such as filtering and shopping lists. Recently, as a New Year's resolution, I decided to go on the Paleo diet. I had been searching for a number of days for apps, books. Being a New beginner to the Paleo diet it was frustrating trying to find a decent app. Most of the apps wanted money for a limited amount of recipes.
Finally I was looking at my apps on my iPad and got to looking at Yum. I rummaged through the filters and imagine to my surprise, there in preference, lo and behold was the Paleo diet, I click that and Unclicked everything else ( make sure you do that or you'll get a hodgepodge of recipes) You could type in search, breakfast, lunch, dinner, sauces and all your results would be in Paleo. The only problem I had in the search occasionally was I had to use their preference box that comes underneath your search. It's a bug and I hope Yum fixes that. But I got to tell you I absolutely no kidding love this app. And the data of recipes is massive. Five stars as far as I'm concerned.
I have been using this app for about 10 months now and find that the amount of recipes here is staggering and you will NEVER run out of inspiration in your cooking,and if you choose to stick with your favorites that is not a problem either. This is an easy app to learn and operate. I like it because we have Yummly logged into my phone and my wife’s and 3 of the 5 kids have phones and they can enter into the shopping list any “request” for a snack item or sometimes I have them choose that weeks set of meals. Taking the pressure off of me to choose something that everyone likes. It helps me stay on budget with the shopping list and with the ability to select the serving size that helps a lot also. Being that my wife and I are a family of 7. So quantities matter to us. The walk through videos can be helpful depending on your skill level. Have fun!
I am newly retired and decided I wanted to help out with the cooking. My husband is a seat-of-the-pants kind of cook - he figures out what to do with the ingredients on hand. I like to plan ahead, making a list and following detailed directions. This app works for both of us.
It’s like having a whole shelf of cookbooks at your fingertips. You can get as fussy or as simple as you want. You can pull up recipes by ingredients on hand, appliance used, time to prepare, and a bunch of other parameters. You can save a list of your disliked foods. Best of all for me is that you can build your own cookbook with tried and true recipes, or recipes that you want to try someday - no more hunting through books for that recipe that looked good several months ago. The app is so easy to personalize, I feel like it was created just for me. This one is the best!
