When it’s time to cook a meal in this apartment, tasty often overrides healthy, so I’m always looking for new recipes that combine both. I’m not an avid reader of Cooking Light magazine, but having read an issue or two, I was interested in checking out the publication’s new universal iDevice app Cooking Light Recipes: Quick and Healthy Menu Maker on my iPad.

For meals, not for searching by jessicadally
I love Cooking Light. While their recipes aren't always the simplest they get that good ingredients and delicious combinations don't need to be left out simply because you don't want huge calories. This app is no exception however there are a few things missing. Basically this app helps you plan and make your menu. The very first meal sounded absolutely delicious and I might well have to make this soon. Balsamic Steak au Poivre with garlic mashed potatoes, sauteed spinach with garlic and some desert that I'll likely change. You can swipe the screen up to get some nutrition information for the whole meal (calories, salt and fat). What's unfortunate is that the nutrition/view menu hides some of the information on the overview page. It's also unfortunate that you can't get the entire nutritional content of the meal. You could if you added it all together as each item has fairly full information, but as a whole meal you're out of luck, the app won't calculate that for you. The other issue is that you can't easily search through these recipes. You basically have to scroll. So why give it four bars? Because Cooking Light does such a good job of making these recipes seem simple, presenting the food in a way that makes you simply insist on trying it and it makes putting together a full meal simple. Sure, there's things it could do better but if you want to look at delicious food this app is for you.
