What users are saying about Must-Have Recipes:
• Love it: It is like having a cookbook on my phone. But easier to search. Very helpful tips, too. —Lindsey mykel
 
LOVE THIS. I’ve never even rated an app but I’m so impressed with this one that I had to! It’s AMAZING. I’ve tried at least 8 cooking apps and this is, by far, the best one. It’s well rounded user friendly and full of great recipes!! It even has general cooking videos that are greatly appreciated by a college student : ) I’m obsessed with this app, great work. —jhking90
 
Fantastic Cookbook App!!!! Love the hard copy BHG cookbook, and this is even better! Organizes your favorites into your own groups, and the shopping list it compiles from each recipe you want to make is invaluable!! Incredibly elegant programming that makes sense, works the way you’d expect it to, and fantastic graphics. An incredible app. And all for FREE!! Download it NOW!!!” —Spinnin’ Wheeler

• The BEST of the BEST: This app is so great! It’s everything from my moms old cookbooks, but updated and on my phone. I have always loved this cookbook and it brings back so many good memories of learning to cook. Thanks for making it so easy to use every day. —MrFashion
