{Kitchen Stories}

I just downloaded this app last week and it is a fun, eclectic collection of recipes!  This inspirational app features video’s and pictures alongside the recipe which is very helpful!

A great feature is when you locate a recipe that you wish to make you can add ingredients to shopping list which will add every ingredient needed to make the recipe into a convenient shopping list. From there you can select which items you need and the ones you already have in your pantry you can deselect from the shopping list.

They include cooking tips as well as wine pairing tips with each recipe. They even include what utensils will be utilized for the entire process.

There is also a section where you can add in a story or add your own recipe creation to share with other users. You could even be selected as one of the Finest Kitchen Stories!

You can also check out their website @ http://eng.kitchenstories.de/

Ohh and the app is FREE!
