by Kate Currin

The wedding is over and the excitement of the reception and honeymoon is winding down. So, what now? Marriage is hard work, but you don’t need to jump into it head first without help. Grab some of these iPhone apps to ease you through the newlywed stage and keep your marriage fresh for many years to come.

Now you are officially cooking for two. Grabbing a beer out of the fridge and popping open a bag of Doritos is no longer an acceptable supper now that you are married. Take a cue from the luscious Nigella Lawson and download her latest free iPhone app, Nigellissima. This cooking app offers up some delicious Italian recipes that your new amour is sure to find tasty. Steer clear of the diet or prepackaged food the first year of marriage and opt for some heartwarming and homemade dinners courtesy of Nigella’s recipes. After all, they do say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. I’m pretty sure it’s true for most women, too.
