When the turkey's overcooked, the potatoes are burned and the pie's soggy, have you ever secretly prayed that Sara Moulton would step in to prepare dinner for your family? Now, with her newly released iPhone app Sara's Kitchen, you can get that extra help from the chef herself.
"I produced this app with the goal … that it would really help people to plan dinner, shop easily for the ingredients and make that homemade meal on a weeknight," said Moulton.
Developed in her home kitchen in New York City, this app focuses on what Moulton does best: teach and offer fast, easy recipes for cooks on a budget. The 60 recipes that Moulton selected are what she considers her best recipes from all three cookbooks. They include step-by-step instructions, photos and an interactive shopping list to take the stress out of cooking.
My favorite part of the app is that you can view ingredients by grocery aisle. (I usually go to the store with my grocery list and run back and forth between aisles like a lunatic.) This section of the app saves me a ton of time.
Another fantastic option is the "Ask Sara" button, which allows you to ask culinary questions of the chef. Moulton responds with the same direct and honest approach we've grown to love on Goodmorningamerica.com.
Whether you're running out of weeknight dinner ideas or just looking for new recipes to try, you'll love Sara's Kitchen. The app is available on iTunes for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch for $2.99.
