The Epicurious app opens up to a very attractive UI with suggested categories that you can browse as well as a convenient search button. Recipes are included from popular magazines like Gourmet and Bon Appetite, as well as renowned chefs, restaurants, and cookbooks. When you’ve found a meal/snack/dessert that sounds appetizing, select it to view a picture, read user reviews (including the % that would make the dish again), and checkout the full recipe (including description, ingredients, and preparation instructions).

If you like what you’ve found, click the grey plus button for options including adding the recipe to your favorites, to your shopping list, or share it via email. The shopping list is one of the best features of this app. Based on what dish you have selected, the shopping list will break up the ingredients into related food types (i.e. dairy, nuts/spices, etc.) and each item is checkable, that way you won’t need to create the list yourself and you won’t forget anything! This really makes cooking new dishes very simple.
