I have Mark Bittmann's How to Cook Everything...it's pretty good. But wanted to see what other ones foodpicklers like.

I also think I makes a nifty refrigerator magnet.

I don't have an ipad I have a macbook and was just looking at aps the other day and cookiza stood out, will probably download it does everything but cook for you I need to organize recipes and that seems to be the one that does it all.

I read food52 on my iPad and I'm using it now as I cook to read the recipes. Wish there was an "app" button so I could flip back and forth.

I don't have an iPad (yet), but if you've really set yours up to be a refrigerator magnet, you're pushing me over that edge. I do use my Kindle in the kitchen. I have a bunch of free cookbooks (one or two of which is actually good!), and I've sent some stuff I've written to my kindle.com account. It's convenient for traveling and for the search function.

Well, it's just something tried for a night.

I wouldn't do it for any length of time...but it was amazing strong. (but, it still worried me---hanging there). I think the ipad2 is lighter...tho. and there are some more study options. http://www.ipadshouse.com...
A bit pricey, from the UK.

Michael Ruhlman's adaptation of his book "Ratio" is available as a paid app. You can also find it for the Droid platform. Pretty damn useful.

Thanks, Sam1148, perhaps I'm not totally sold...though that fridgepad comes close. I think I'd worry a little about moisture if I left it up there for long. Or not being able to read it because someone kept opening the refrigerator door.

Right after the iPad was introduced, I saw an article about someone who cut a hole in his kitchen cabinet door and installed an iPad holder. It was pretty intriguing, but also not the perfect answer.

My husband bought the leather binder with a built in easel, but I just put it on my cookbook holder. I love that I can enlarge the ingredient list or the prep steps and I can read it easily. Also love my kindle...but hadn't used it in the kitchen. What free cookbooks did you like?

Most of the free cookbooks are a little odd--think Belgians relocated to England during World War II and missing home or early San Francisco. One that's really interesting is called Nile Style: Egyptian Cuisine and Culture by Amy Riolo. It's great reading as well as having some good recipes.

@lorigold.
I got "Ratio's" tonight...not free. But a handy "chart" of basic ratios for cooking---it doesn't come with any recipes, and the included ratios are rather spare. It's more for adjusting basic sauces, doughs, etc to smaller ratios. Drawback: it doesn't use the full screen--it's a iphone appe that happens to run on the pad. Very basic, but I can it being useful for adjust primary items for parsed down, or up, versions of recipes. (changing cups to weights, portions, etc). Kinda like a good spreadsheet.

How to Cook Everything by Bittman: is pretty extensive and has a handy timer function. tap on a timer for a recipe..set multiple timers for the recipe..etc.

Epicurious : I think that one was free, basically their website in 'pad/book' format with search function. So quality is kind of 'hit/miss' there for the recipes.


I can't wait until food52 makes a ipad app for this site. Because that would be fantastic!
Which I'm SURE is giving peter some headaches--because that's where everything is heading these days.
