You don’t need to log-in to access the app’s content. Simply load the cookbook to open the home screen where you can find the main chapters. The chapters are organized alphabetically starting from Appetizers and Breakfasts to Vegetarian meals.

Tap any recipe you can find and the app will open a tabbed page. Each recipe has its own photo, detailed description, ingredients list, and step-by-step cooking procedure.

One of the most useful features of this app is the intuitive search tool. If you are not keen on browsing thousands of recipes by chapters, you can look for any recipe you need by ingredients or meal type. The app has a unique search feature called Surprise Me. It only requires you to enter all available ingredients in your kitchen and when you tap the Surprise Me button, a suitable recipe will be shown to you.

Another good feature of this app is the custom chapter creation. You can create your own cookbook chapter by saving your favorite recipes in the Favorites Folder. The app automatically creates a chapter that contains all saved favorites for easier access.
