Five Apps to Make Your Thanksgiving Planning a Breeze

Posted by Jennifer Allen on November 24th, 2014

Thanksgiving is nearly upon us! You know what that means? Eating too much turkey, watching the Big Game, and spending time with family (whether you like it or not). Oh, and that scary Black Friday thing, but we won’t talk about that here. For those of you in need of some inspiration for what to cook and how to make the traditional dinner extra special, we’ve taken a look at some of the best Thanksgiving themed cookery and grocery shopping apps out there. They’re sure to make things a bit more exciting than usual!


Butterball Cookbook Plus



No Thanksgiving is right without the almighty presence of Butterball. The latest app benefits from being free while also offering plenty of useful Thanksgiving recipes. While there’s obviously quite a bias towards turkey-based products, there’s still space for salad and dessert recipes, as well as how to use up leftover turkey in the most delightful of ways.

Besides the many recipes there are also conversion charts, substitution lists, a cooking calculator to tell you how long defrosting and cooking will take, plus plenty of organizational features. Not bad at all for the grand price of nothing!

Thanksgiving Menu Maker



Scheduling and timing is often the tricky part of any major family meal. Thanksgiving Menu Maker solves that problem. Besides offering over 75 different recipe ideas, it’ll allow you to tick off what you want to cook, then creates a shopping list for all those items before organizing exactly what you need to do at which time of day, so you don’t have to stress about figuring out all the timings. It’s practically foolproof in its implementation, taking out one of the most stressful parts of a big family dinner.

Paprika Recipe Manager



Paprika Recipe Manager is a useful app, regardless of the season. It makes it simple for you to download recipes from hundreds of different websites, thereby storing them safely within your app with everything there for viewing. You can use it to easily cross off ingredients, start multiple timers, pin important recipes, scale serving sizes, and easily co-ordinate a grocery list. It’s powerful stuff, ensuring that all your favorite websites have their own recipe app in many ways. You can even create menu plans with it, proving ideal when juggling Thanksgiving ideas.

Thanksgiving: A Bon Appetit Manual



A rather classy app, Thanksgiving: A Bon Appetit Manual is ideal for those after similarly classy turkey-based recipes. It offers 101 recipes in all, divided between traditional and modern interpretations. Plus, there are various tips, how-to guides, and videos on getting things just right. The tips are particularly handy when dealing with more complicated procedures, with videos easily guiding you every step of the way. There’s a scheduling feature for added convenience too, as well as options for saving recipes for considering later on.

Grocery iQ



Organizing the grocery shopping list is much simpler when you use an app. While Grocery iQ isn’t perfect, it is very useful. You can create a list from an extensive product database using text, a barcode, or even a voice search. It’s then easy to share with other devices, being particularly ideal when splitting the shopping with other members of the family. It goes one step further by allowing you to find related coupons, saving you money in the process. You can add your loyalty card too. Shopping during the holiday season might be stressful but this app should make it a bit smoother.
