  • Colorful icons identify foods that meet certain nutrition criteria such as high carb or nut-free.
  • Save favorite recipes and blog posts to easily access them later.
  • Join the app using a Facebook account or create an account using an email address.


  • Ingredient quantities are provided in grams, which will send most Americans to an online converter or in search of a different recipe outside the app.
  • Does not include a grocery list feature.
  • The recipe database is limited. With only 40 recipes at the time of this review, heavy users will quickly want more.
