Top Recipe Apps

Adding new foods to your weekly meals can help to increase the nutrients you get but also can help bring the kids to the dinner table. With phones always around, having a recipe app at your fingertips is essential. There are a lot of apps on the market to get recipes, so we are going to help you find the right one. After looking through the recipe apps available, we have filtered the options down to four.


Instead of being a traditional recipe app, Tasty hails itself as a cooking coach. Using the app, you can see how it is different. Not only do they have the traditional step-by-step instructions, but they also have videos for most of their recipes. If someone in your family has food restrictions you can filter out meals such as gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, etc. Tasty has an almost perfect score on Google Play Store.

Tasty is made by Buzzfeed so it has the power of a big name behind it. Be ready to see plenty of mouth-watering pictures. To complement these pictures is a simple layout that makes reading each step and the ingredients easier than most recipe apps.

Yummly Recipes & Shopping List

Yummly has traditional recipe features where you can find instructions to cook just about any kind of meal you might want. It goes beyond that though. The app hails itself as the most personalized cooking app out there. When you set up your account you get to set your preferences, likes, dislikes, and allergies. From there you get personalized recommendations on foods that you might like.

Like with Tasty, Yummly also has a section where you can see a lot of recipes with video steps. This can help you to learn new cooking skills and to simplify the prep process.

Yummly features a calendar so you can schedule when you want to make meals. This can help the family know what they are going to have for meals every day!

BigOven Recipes, Meal Planner, Grocery List & More

BigOven is the cooking app that does it all. When you open BigOven you can quickly notice that you have access to several features. The recipes section has over 350,000 recipes available to you. But you also can create grocery lists based on recipes on the app. You can also plan out meals so that you know what to get at the grocery store without having to go every day.

Don’t forget to check out the Get Ideas section when you are trying to pick the right sides, healthy meal ideas, and more.

Allrecipes Dinner Spinner

Allrecipes is one of the most well-known recipe websites on the internet. Not too long ago they remade their app into something new, a dinner spinner. The Allrecipes Dinner Spinner app allows you to get recommendations on what you should make. When you save recipes and mark recipes as made, the app gets a better understanding of what you like. You can also browse and search for recipes like a normal recipe app.

One of the reasons that Allrecipes stands out is the fact that you can see what food items are on sale at stores near you. When you enter local stores, you also get personal recommendations based on the store you are going to.

Now that you are armed with the top recipe apps, you will never have to worry about figuring out how to cook something. There will also always be ideas for what to cook for every meal. These apps have come a long way too by giving you personalized recipes options, something that wasn’t available in the past.
