Tired of getting to 5pm without knowing what to cook for the family? Made a last minute decision on the meal only to discover you are missing most of the ingredients?

PlanBuyCook is meal planning made simple using our no-fuss iPad app. It makes planning, shopping for and cooking your meals easy.

PlanBuyCook offers a real life meal planner: use any of our 120 recipes or write your own favourites. You can also schedule in events such as eating out or takeaway – just like you plan your meals in real life. Simply drag and drop them into the planner.

The PlanBuyCook app automatically scales recipes to match your household size, from 1 to 10 serves for every recipe.

NEW: Write your own recipes and the ingredients will automatically be added to the shopping list and aggregated along with any app recipe ingredients you choose. The PlanBuyCook app will automatically scale your recipes to your household size, or locks the scaling for desserts or recipes you do not wish to scale.

US naming and imperial measurements now available.
