APP SNAP: All Recipes is great for experimental cooks
3 out of 5 stars. All Recipes puts a spin on typical recipe apps -- literally. Open the app and you'll see what I mean. There are three rows in the dinner spinner. The first is labeled "dish type" with options such as salads, side dishes and drinks.

All Recipes puts a spin on typical recipe apps -- literally.
Open the app and you'll see what I mean. There are three rows in the dinner spinner. The first is labeled "dish type" with options such as salads, side dishes and drinks. The second row is a list of ingredients including fish, chocolate and pasta. On the final row, you'll find prep times from 20 minutes to over an hour.
If you're feeling experimental, this app is great. Give your phone a little shake and the rows will start spinning. When they stop, hit "view matches," and the app will load all of the recipes that match your random selections. You also have the option to scroll through and choose your preferences, but where's the fun in that?
View recipes by relevance, rating, title or popularity. Once you find one you want to try, add it to your favorites. Each recipe includes a summary, list of ingredients, directions, nutritional information and user reviews.
The best part about this app is that you can add recipes to your shopping list. The app will automatically categorize all of the ingredients on a list, which you can check off while you shop.
The recipes load a little slow and the ads can be a bit distracting, but if you're looking for a fun new recipe, All Recipes is worth a try.
