The iPad is a nifty tool for the kitchen. We love a bunch of recipe apps for the iPad like the Photo Cookbook or 20 minute meals by Jamie Oliver. However, there are food blogs out there chock full of delicious recipes and incredible photographs that are free and just look better on the iPad versus a desktop. Here are our favorites to get you in the kitchen.
Gojee: One of our newer discoveries, Gojee is a site that gives you recipes based on your cravings, food preferences or what ingredients you have in the house. The site is heavy on the visuals with beautiful photographs of the dish as the entire background of the site, making it that much more appealing to view on the iPad. The left and right arrows work with a click of your mouse on the computer and a tap on the iPad.
Canelle et Vanille: This blog surged so much in popularity that the blogger is now writing a book filled with her recipes and incredible photography. We’ve always loved going through the recipes on Canelle et Vanille, all of which are gluten free. Her photography really shines when viewed on a tablet.
Oh Joy Eats: Another one of our favorite bloggers, Joy Deangdeelert Cho, is great design inspiration but also has a section on her blog dedicated to food. Joy’s coverage on food splits between occasional recipes and local food finds to discoveries in other cities.
Tastespotting: A community driven recipe blog, Tastespotting has always been pleasing to the eye. Quickly scroll through the grid of recipes on the iPad before selecting the most delicious looking one.
The Pioneer Woman: For some hearty Californian/southern fusion, we look to Ree Drummond’s blog, the Pioneer Woman. We love this blog because of the step-by-step instructions for each dish accompanied by a beautiful photo per step. That’s dedication. Again, following the Pioneer Woman’s recipes on the iPad (or any other tablet) provides the best experience.
Cakespy: For those who have a sweet tooth and prefer to stare at and learn how to make baked goods instead, Cakespy is a good place to start. The blog offers a variety of content to flick through between bakery crawls and recipes for cookies, cakes and more.
E-obento: Now we aren’t fluent in Japanese but that doesn’t mean we don’t always get a kick out of browsing photos of kyaraben – elaborately arranged bento where the food ingredients inside a bento represent characters. Looking at Pikachu and Domo inspired rice dishes is a lot more fun when flicking through them on the iPad.
