Cooking Planit Review

The school year has come to an end and I'm beyond excited about it. I've been so pooped with teaching, mommying, and wife-ing. Busy busy busy. That's the name of the game. One thing that I've been pretty consistent with is cooking. I am happy to report that we've been eating out less and staying in a lot more. It feels good. However, meal planning, prepping, and cooking is hard work. Cue Cooking Planit.

Just when I was starting to lose momentum, I was contacted by Cooking Planit to review their app. They claimed that it would make my life a bit easier. I was more than game because I love to cook and I love things that make my hobby easier. So, I put it to the test!

What is it exactly?

Cooking Planit is a revolutionary cooking website/app that serves as "your own personal chef". It will help you make "a complete meal with everything ready at the same time." This is unlike any other recipe site that I've ever seen. When I peruse other sites, I have the added task of building my own meal whereas this website builds it for you.

My Favorite Features:
The ease of use
- Everything was pretty easy to navigate and it didn't take long to build a few meals for the week.

The recipe selection

- Recipes are easy to find on the internets, however, these recipes are tested by chefs so essentially you are getting cookbook quality recipes!

The "smart" grocery list

- After choosing my menu, the app automatically organizes a list of groceries AND it will jot down how much of an ingredient you will need for the week. For instance, if you need tomatoes in a few recipes, it'll tell you how many you need for all of them! Nice! I also liked how it organizes your groceries according to grocery aisle. If it had a delivery feature, I would marry this app. For Reals.

The built-in timers

- When the recipe says bake for 20 minutes, it will start the timer for you. If you need to boil veggies at the same time for 2 minutes, it will start another timer! It also adjusts the time if you are falling behind or if you are too overly eager and jump ahead. 

The talk feature 
-I don't know about you but I can get down and dirty in the kitchen. I get all up in there with my hands which cover cookbook pages with saucy fingerprints. No bueno. The app follows basic commands such as, "next step" or "go back"

Putting it to the test

I decided to make Bacon Wrapped Sea Scallops with a Parsnip Hash and Roasted Asparagus as my first Cooking Planit meal. I've never made scallops before so it was nice to have this helper in the kitchen. It was delicious and the directions were so simple and easy to follow that it felt like a seamless process. 

I also tried making one of their Quick Meals, the Parmesan Baked Chicken and Roasted Brussels Sprouts. It was indeed quick and Hubby asked me to put this in my regular meal rotation. 

Overall, this app is well thought out and perfect for a busy mom, an aspiring chef, or even a person who just wants to eat a good meal. I highly recommend this app!
