Things I Love Thursday- Betty Crocker Ap.

When it came time to do all of our traveling last fall, we knew that we would need some sort of music player. We had nothing- not even an 'ancient' cd player! So, we headed out to buy some sort of mp3 player. We ended up buying an Ipod touch 2G. I love it! We have wireless in the house, so I can do a quick check of the email, without loading up the computer. I have a couple little scribble games for Izzy to play when we are waiting in line or at an office. Its been so handy! I also put all of Izzy's music on there. I created playlists for her different favorites- veggie tales, praise songs from church, strawberry shortcake, etc. She tells me what she wants, I press play- no fumbling with CD's!

One of my favorite things with my Ipod touch have been the aps. One favorite of my is the Betty Crocker Ap. Its filled with all sorts of great, easy recipes with things I often have in the cupboard or fridge anyway. This little ap has a couple of great features:
  1. It was free!
  2. Surprise me function allows you to just let it pick random recipes for you to browse- coming up with things you wouldn't have thought of to look for (like a dry chai mix!)
  3. Search by ingredient allows you to find recipes that have 1-2 ingredients you have on hand and want to get rid of.
  4. Save my favorites so I don't have to go looking for that one recipe that sounded oh so good the other day!
  5. Did I mention it was free?

I love my Betty Crocker Ap. Plus, since its on my handy Ipod touch, I don't have to print anything out, just keep it close as I'm cooking!

That's what I love this Thursday. Head on over to The Diaper Diaries for more!

That is a cool ap! I have an old Ipod, and as long as it works I won't be getting a new one. But it does sound so awesome!

Yes it is a recipe book application. All the recipes include at least one 'betty crocker' or relative product. It comes in very handy.

I love discovering new iTouch applications. Especially the free ones. Do you have Grocery Zen? It is one of my faves. It costs a little, but has made my grocery shopping so much easier!!
