With its gorgeous photos and step-by-step instructions, this compilation of more than 15,000 recipes from The New York Times’ vaults belongs in every kitchen. We love how easy it is to save and search for recipes, and themed collections like “Easy Cakes,” “Beer Cocktails,” and “A Taste of New Orleans” are a mouth-watering delight. The app also features dozens of short instructional videos on topics like trussing chicken and julienning peppers—perfect for novice chefs eager to dive in and start cooking.

Used to love it, but not any more.

I've used this app for a very long time and loved it, but now it won't allow me to organize any of my recipes into my collections. It asks me to sign in, and when I enter my NY Times subscription ID and password it just gives me the eternal circling wheel. I've written twice to customer support. They replied the first time with a "solution" that showed they did not understand my problem. When I replied clarifying my issue, they simply ignored me. A few months ago I would have given this app 5 stars, but now I can only give it 3. Very disappointing.
I wrote the above review a few months ago and today when I tried to write a new review it made me re-send the prior one. So, since I now have a new complaint I’m adding it to the old review. The above problem was resolved after my initial complaint. But now, for the past few weeks when I receive my regular email from NYTimes Cooking and I want to view one of the recipes from it, I am required to sign in EVERY TIME. Once I do that, view and save the recipe and then return to the email to continue looking through it, and I select a different recipe FROM THE SAME email, I am forced to sign in ALL OVER AGAIN. Clicking on the Remember me button is worthless. I do not have this issue with my computer, nor with my iPad. It is only on my iPhone where I have been successfully using the app for years until now.
So I’m dropping my rating to two stars.

This app inspires

The NYT cooking app has given a new lease on life to my nightly dinner prep. I search the app almost every evening for inspiration about how to make a tasty meal from the random items in my fridge - that still-snowy-white cauliflower I bought a week ago, the frozen shrimp, the impulse purchase of a new harissa sauce. It never fails me. If I don’t have all the ingredients in a recipe, I don’t run to the store, but improvise. I substitute parsley for cilantro, sweet onions for leeks, or just omit. I love that all the recipes are attributed to chefs I’ve come to know from regular reading of the Times, so I can prioritize my favorites, whose tastes are a good match for my household’s. This alone makes the app far more reliable than the recipes that pop up on a random Google search. If I happen to be connected to a printer, I print a hard copy for reference in the kitchen. If not, I prop up my smart phone or tablet on the kitchen counter, fetch my ingredients from the convenient list at the top, and switch over to a news program to stave off kitchen ennui while I chop and simmer. My only complaint is that the recipes tend to underestimate prep and cooking time, so I’ve learned it’s best to allow some extra time. But the $39/year was a great expenditure.
