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.
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.
This is my go-to place for finding and then organizing recipes. It is easy to use, and wonderful for exploring and for finding help on cooking techniques. The ability to add recipes from other online sites is a generous plus. The whole design of the app is elegant and clean.
My one (minor, but...) complaint that keeps from getting this 5 stars is that the categories were added a few releases ago and I cannot override or change them. I had already set up my own categories at that point and the “enforced” ones are more numerous and also more general than I like. The Brunch category for example duplicates a category I had set up, but about 80% of our selections match—do I sort through each group and modify (tricky to do on a mobile phone!) so I can delete my old Brunch category, or do I leave both of them.....grrrr. Some of the new categories are general—Dinner for example—where I would rather set up my own according to type of food—casserole, meat, nonmeat, etc.
I would like to be able to do away with the NYT defined categories altogether, but can’t see a way to do that. So I am left with all their new categories, many of my own, and lots of duplication. It’s frustrating in an otherwise well designed app. I still consider it my favorite and highly recommend it.
