Want to cook something different today? Or maybe you’re new to cooking and want something simple and straight. No need to buy a bulky cookbook or watch some chef on TV if you’ve got Tasty, a free app from Buzzfeed with thousands of recipes to choose from. Whether you’re a beginner or not, there should be something here for you.
The Tasty interface is easy to figure out: there are videos and step by step instructions with a complete list of ingredients. Looking for something specific? Use the search bar at the top of the screen.
You can sort through the recipes by ingredients, by cuisine, difficulty level and dietary needs. It is as simple as finding the recipe you like, tap to view and follow the instructions and video. Another nice thing about Tasty is it keeps your app’s light on so it does not sleep while you’re following the recipe.
The recipes vary widely in scope and style. There is something here for meat lovers and vegetarians as well. Do you prefer gluten free dishes? No problem as you can narrow the search to that level. The database is being constantly updated so you’ll be able to pick and choose.
If you feel overwhelmed by all the options, just try its recommendations and you’ll be presented with daily recommendations. A cooking recipe app doesn’t need to be fancy, just informative, easy to use with lots of variety. That is what you get here, a simple but effective cooking app.
