These are recipes from mobile cookbook apps, and a few from other places across the Internet. They can serve as the basis for a simple and quick summer dinner menu, with appetizer, soup, salad, grilled entree, and dessert. Plus, we’re highlighting a bonus recipe below for a second dessert. Because you can never have too many dessert choices, right?
Other cookbook apps to note:
If you’re anything like us, you’re going to want to download all of these apps to your mobile device of choice. Before you do, here’s one more app to consider: Chow and Chatter to Go, from Rebecca Subbiah.
The approximately 80 recipes from this cookbook app (with more to come, according to Rebecca), can be searched by dish, ingredient, or cuisine. The 19 cuisines are impressively varied and include Turkish, Costa Rican, and Colombian. And since the author is British and her husband is Indian, the app is especially strong in these cuisines, including recipes such as Fisherman’s Pie, Victoria Sandwich, Black Chick Pea Curry, and Coconut Lamb Curry.
What I like most about this app is that when I’m standing in the grocery store, with no idea of what to cook that night, I can pull out my iPhone, choose a cuisine or ingredient, and quickly find an unusual, healthy (Rebecca is a registered dietician), and not-too-complicated dish: Chow and Chatter to Go, to the rescue!
