No, it won’t do the dishes, but it will help you get dinner on the table easier. It won’t guarantee the kids will eat what you put on the table, but they can browse for a dish they like. It may not be life-saving, but when you’re in a pinch for dinner, you’ll feel like it is. It’s our new mobile phone app. We made it extra simple to use—with minimal icons to tap, you won’t need a user’s manual.
Do you have chicken in the fridge and want a quick summer dish? You can search for that. Are you looking for a healthy dessert? You can search for that, too. There’s also a selection of editor’s picks and an ever-changing list of featured recipes pulled straight from the website, so the recipes are constantly refreshed. And did I mention it’s free? It’s free. Get it (easykitchen.wpengine.com/ mobile). Use it. Love it.
