I’m a HUGE fan of Real Simple Magazine. When I heard about the iPhone app for recipes, I didn’t hesitate to pay $4.99 to buy it. I’ve being “using” it, as in browsing the recipe options, for about a month now…I’m not impressed. The recipes often include boxed or frozen food to save time, and most of the combos aren’t anything I couldn’t whip up on my own. I was surprised because I usually tear out one or two recipes from the magazine
The Epicurious app recipes are a little more adventurous. It collects recipes from many different sources. And, I can search for what I’m looking for. And! It’s free.
