Some recipes are just basics in every cook’s repertoire. Quiches and Pies (dessert and pizza) are certainly in that category. You could search your cookbooks or the net, copy or print out the recipe or, even easier, download iCooking Pies and Quiches, developed by Apps of All Nations, LLC, and have the recipes on hand – all the time. You’ll always be ready to plan and cook a great meal or dessert.
Both Pies and Quiches start with a crust so it makes sense to pair these together. There are fifty-seven options for you to review. Once you start cooking, you’ll have your friends asking for your recipes. Open up iCooking Pies and Quiches and start exploring. Your can look through all the recipes, or you can browse recipes by type – sweet pies, quiches, pizza, salty pies or dough. Once you look through the recipes you can mark your favorites. In addition, there is a place you can enter your own recipes.
You may be wondering if you’ll really find this app helpful. After the great recipes, the thing you will no doubt like the best is having the ingredient list handy so that you will be ready to pick up what you need any time. Another great feature is the ability to email the recipe to yourself (or friends). I like to check of the ingredients as I work so having a print out was great for me. Another plus is the ability to add your own recipes. I’ll be adding my pecan pie recipe (we call it Southern Pie).
Personally, I have been a little timid about trying to make my own crust. Once I read the ingredients and the instructions, I wondered why I was worried. It’s really quite simple, so I decided to try the pecan pie. I used to make it all the time and I wanted to see if it was still as good as I remember. The good news is that it turned out great – the crust was flaky and was just the right complement to the golden brown of the pecans. My mouth is watering just writing about it! We added a little ice cream and had the perfect dessert.
When you are reading a cookbook you don’t usually wonder how it can be improved. However, when you use an app you start playing amateur developer. So, with that in mind I’d say that as a recipe app it works well. If I had to come up with something, I would suggest a way to increase the number of recipes. That could be through allowing friends with the app to share recipes or maybe by creating a user community. If you happen to buy more than one iCooking Cuisine app (they have 14+) you’ll notice that seven of the recipes (pizzas) in this app are also in the Italian Cuisine app. I don’t have a problem with that; it makes since to include them with the other pies.
I have pizza at least once a week, make a pie every month or so and have quiche when it is offered on restaurant menus. I have to admit I haven’t made one myself yet. How often will you use iCooking Pies and Quiches? I guess that depends on your cooking habits, but I expect you’ll find that you use it a lot if you enjoy this style of cooking. For about a dollar you can have a whole range of recipes readily available and have an opportunity to impress your friends and family with your cooking ability.
iCooking Pies and Quiches is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch and requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later.
