There are two types of people in the world: those who love to cook and those who almost find it a chore. Now there are a few apps to help any cook no matter how seasoned you are.

YUMMLY
Yummly’s greatest strength lies with its search engine. Of course, it’ll provide hundreds of recipes to replicate and experiment with, but you can also tailor searches to fit your specific needs and lifestyle. Going on a diet, but still want to enjoy a good burger? Yummly has you covered. Have a particularly nasty food allergy you’d rather not deal with anytime soon? Yummly can adjust for that as well.

TENDER
Tender is the Tinder of the cooking world, even if the name might imply otherwise. The real point of the app is convenience. It allows you to quickly browse a number of different recipes and then save them for later, so you can plan out your meals from wherever you are. You’ll also be presented with recipes from a range of different sites, and if you swipe to the right, you can save them in your “cookbook” for later viewing.

SIDE CHEF
With SideChef, you can get access to more than 2,500 food recipes and follow top food bloggers and chefs. The app’s main goal, however, is to make cooking easier for new cooks, regardless of how much experience they may have. Each recipe comes with step-by-step instructions and an accompanying set of photos, videos, voice commands, and timers. You can also adjust the serving size of a recipe on the fly, which automatically converts the ingredients. See a recipe you want to try out, but don’t have the ingredients for it? Make a list within the app and email it to yourself for later.

ALLRECIPES DINNER SPINNER
Every recipe available from Allrecipes comes from a community of more than 30 million. This extends to the photos, reviews, and ratings, which gives this particular app more of a social feel than others. One huge benefit to this is that you’re able to see what ingredients are on sale and what recipes are the cheapest to make on any given day. The app will also recommend recipes when you walk into certain stores, which could come in handy if you’re in the mood to make something special, but don’t really know what yet. Aside from all of that, Allrecipes comes with all the usual features, like the ability to create shopping lists, save your favorite recipes, and filter your search results by diet, cooking time, and foods you don’t like.

BIG OVEN
With more 350,000 recipes, BigOven makes cooking simple. With this cooking app, you’ll be inspired and organized in the kitchen and on the go. Some of the highlights include access to BigOven’s massive library of recipes, the ability to add snapshots of your own recipes, the option to make a grocery list in the app based on recipes you’d like to create, and help to make your meal planning a lot easier with the weekly organizer. The app also adds a social feature, allowing you to check out what your friends, family, and favorite bloggers are making. Plus, it offers seasonal collections right from the home screen to get you inspired. ■
