If you own a smartphone or tablet, you know the moment I’m about to describe.
You’re browsing the app store or see a blog post about new or must-have apps when one piques your interest.
You download the app and find something you can’t believe you were able to live without. You’re much stronger than you thought.
I had this revelatory moment recently upon downloading the latest version of Evernote Food for the iPad.
This app, developed by electronic note-taking giant Evernote, helps users remember the restaurants they love and the dishes they want to try again, as well as plan entire meals on their portable devices.
But that is far from the app’s coolest feature.
That honor is reserved for the “My Cookbook,” feature, which lets users browse any number of popular food websites and recipe blogs and clip and save recipes to the app.
As someone who often cooks recipes from blogs such as Serious Eats, Food Republic and Bon Appetit, this feature was a game-changer. Gone are the days of printing out recipes.
And Evernote Food is a gorgeous app with seemingly few bugs, despite this version having been released in mid-December.
Foodies everywhere will wonder, like I did, how we ever cooked without it.
