As an avid cook, I devour any food related resource that I find….pun intended…
I search cooking magazines, blogs, Facebook pages, Pinterest boards, and websites looking for fresh inspiration for our weekly meal plans or my holiday entertaining menu. I want recipes that have interesting, yet easy to find ingredients and don’t take a ton of time to prep.
As a regular shopper at GIANT Food Stores, I pick up their free Savory magazine every time a new issue is available. It is a glossy food magazine that offers everything I’m looking for and it’s completely FREE. So I was pretty excited when GIANT recently introduced a new iPad app, Savory Cooking App. This app offers a wide variety of recipes with gorgeous photos, quick videos, and the most fun feature of the app, and what sets it apart from others, is the voice-activation to walk the home cook through step-by-step instructions.
Get Started with Savory Cooking App for the iPad:
The app has convenient search and filter functions. New recipes with photos and videos are added regularly.
Let me show you around the app:
Step 1: Find a delicious recipe.
Step 2: Watch a step-by-step video. When you’re ready to move on, swipe the down arrow at the bottom of the page to find the ingredients, as seen in the picture below.
Step 3: Gather your ingredients and then swipe the down arrow at the bottom of the page to move on to the instructions, as seen in the picture below.
Step 4: You can either scroll through the instructions OR activate the voice feature. To activate the voice feature, click the greenish “FULL SCREEN” box in the top right corner. (see picture below)
Step 5: To start voice activation, hit the microphone in the top right corner, as seen in the picture below.
Step 6: Turn on the voice control, as seen in the picture below. Use the are 2 commands: next page, or previous page, to move through the instructions.
This app is available on an iPad.
