To me, the hardest thing about cooking dinner is actually coming up with the idea of what to eat in the first place. I have no problem with knocking something up in the kitchen but it is that touch of inspiration that's generally needed to stir me into action. That's why a food, recipe and cooking application like Recipe Kitchen is such a useful thing to have around. It's a beautiful looking app for iOS that offers over 100,000 searchable and easy to find recipes. Where this differs from many similar food apps is by providing a barcode scanner where you can scan the ingredients in your larder and look for relevant recipes
 
Recipe Kitchen offers you squillions of brilliant, varied and fully searchable recipes that can be easily found at the touch of your finger via your iPhone and iPad. But, its the app's ability to search  for recipes by ingredients that is the real icing on the cake. The developers have built in a unique barcode scanner that allows you to scan the ingredients in your kitchen quickly and to use that information to search for recipes that you can cook with them. Recipes displayed in the app come from multiple sources from right across across the web meaning you get the best of whats out there and across all food groups, countries and proteins. You can even add your own recipes to share with the world. Finally, or the well organized among us there's also a tool to help manage your food shopping.  Just add all of your recipe's ingredients to your shopping list with a simple touch of a button or add items individually  All data is synced across any of your other devices that have your app installed.  Future plans are to have a feature called 'Tips & Tricks' where you  get to share the various shortcuts and clever moves that you have picked up in the kitchen. Maybe the ones you remember from when you were a kid.
 
I feel for the humble paper recipe book. I have a kitchen full of recipe books in my kitchen but, more often than not, the first thing I do when I am deciding what to cook is to find an online recipe. Recipe Kitchen offers a comprehensive selection of great recipes - over 100,000 of them - meaning that you are guaranteed to find pretty much any recipe you want. The added bonus of this easy-to-use and beautifully illustrated food app is the barcode scanner. Just scan the stuff you ave in the cupboard and the app will search out recipes based on what you have. Recipe Kitchen could well be the only recipe book that you will ever need.
