Thinks like I do!

I love this app! It thinks like I do. Two improvements that I would to see is a consolidated shopping list. If I could make one BIG suggestion, I would request a notes field where I could put the vessel that it will be served in or a serving dish field. Then this app would be perfect. By the way, it does a great job of finding appropriate photos of your dish!

No event is complete without this menu tool!

I use this app for every holiday, birthday, and get together. It saves me from making multiple lists and it’s always accessible. A must have for anyone who loves planning events with food.

It’s okay

I wish there was more integration with an app like paprika or pepperplate. All of my recipes are stored in those. To use this app I’ve had to put all my recipes into Evernote and then into this app. It’s not the best because the app does not pull the picture of the recipient and there does not appear to be a way to add it. I do like the list aggregator and the reminders list a lot. I just wish I could pull recipes from anywhere on the web not just the websites that are listed
