Have been using this application for some time and search it very useful. Ability to add own dishes and weekly templates is great. Would be handy to be able to categorise dishes too eg beef dishes, soups, ideas for leftovers, etc. I also loved the week to view widget but I seem to have lost that since the recent update. Followed developers instructions under settings / apps / simple menu planner but don't have the latest step as an option on my phone. Bit frustrating.
Terrific application and unbelievable developer. All our menus and recipes got accidentally deleted in one of the previous updates and we had not yet made an acc for easier recovery. We emailed the developer and within 2 days he had released a couple of updates that fixed our issue. Thank you for creating such a simple, useful application and being a communicative, hardworking developer.
Tried my first food and I added Salmon for the entree then when I tried to add salad as a side, I couldn't search it in the find so I tried to add it manually and it said it already exists. Most people have more than 1 side for dinner and I can't add more than one. Deleting this app.
I think the concept and widgets are amazing but it would so much better if: -The dishes selection/creation menu would have categories. Ex. Poultry, Beef, Pork, Pasta, Crockpot, Casseroles, etc.... ...it would create sifting through all added recipes so much easier. -The ping list would have a list of stores that we can make ourselves to be able to seperate the stuff added to our list. And also a method of sorting the stuff into categories. Ex. Cans, Meat, Dairy, Vegetables, Fruits, Condiments, etc. + Alphabetical order, etc ...I've been playing around with the method I enter stuff in my recipes but its time consuming which you dont really have time for when you have a kids! Thanks though! Amazing job! :-)
I love that I can set the day to begin on and that I can plan as far ahead as I want. This would be a 5 star application if the ping list was more functional with categories. Also if the seach allowed you to seach all categories of items. For example I was trying to add green beans as a side, I was not able to locate iit in a search, would not let me to add it as it said it was already a food. Finally figured out it was set as an entree once I checked that it was a side as well it worked fine. Would have saved a lot of time and frustration if it would have come up in the search.
It was fine up until I actually stated adding meals into my calender. Then it wouldn't present everything, so when I tried to make a fresh food from that screen it told me it already existed. Then when I tried searching for it the application crashed multiple times.
Upgrading 1 star as dev amazing in allowing offliners a possibility to use!! Now an acct no longer required for this to work. Awesome!! Thx, dev! I hold checking back but dev still undecided as to allowing local export/backup. This is _very_ necessary on so a lot of levels. I can't use this in the end unless this is added. Too limiting when just syncing is available +for users a recipe for future disaster on so a lot of levels. Dev, pls provide!! Amazing permissions, no acct needed, so looks like just bkp is missing. Thx!!
Loved the application spent ages typing in my recipes only to explore the fatal flaw. When you have set your weekly menu then go to your ping list you will quickly spot the major flaw in this app, the ping list is a everyday list so you do not have all total to do a weekly i.e. if on 3 separate days I need an Apple for my recipes you would think your ping list would say Apple's 3. It does not, just says Apple's 1 todays menu.....duh
I could add more than one thing in the side area. I wish to create food plans for my toddler. Kinda hard if I can only have the main thing and one or two sides considering he gets something from every meal group. And sometimes he gets 2 various things from one group so he's actually getting like 7 various things. I just wish to be able to for the week with ease. We're over prepared meals and wish to eat cleaner... Please help!
This is just what I was looking for. Spent a while adding dishes, ingredients, and created 2 weeks worth of menus. Backed it all up to cloud. Then, I had a issue with my phone and had to restart it. When I opened the menu planner and tried to retrieve my backup, it was gone and now I have to begin all over :( Also all the dates are messed up.
When I first installed it I could see all the areas on the map and I loved the app. Now, none present up, anywhere in the US. I tried to do a find and it just sat on the searching screen and never gave me any results. Obtain it working again and I'll change my rating.
I bought this book because I had read reviews that it had healthier versions of traditional dishes. I personally was disappointed in that regard. Of course, everyone's standards for what constitutes healthy are different. For me, I thought there was still copious amounts of oil/fat in even vegetable dishes. True, chicken fat was not rendered and included in dishes which I guess is a step forward.
I am a Starbucks Barista and lemme tell this application is super dated. We have not carried the orange refresher in over five years. Not only that but some of the stuff on here are actual menu stuff that they included here to test and create their secret menu list look bigger. On top of that there are so a lot of ads that you can't even look at the drinks half the time.
amazing app, sweet recipes. only two things: 1. needs update. no more java chips, just frappucino chips (same thing). they removed the peach syrup so some of the recipes are not able to be done, items like that. 2. needs a warning that each has various supplies so not every shop can complete order. select shop zone on application before ordering. that is all, would like to see more recipes, amazing app!
Excellent! So glad I found this app! Nice detailed descriptions and so a lot of countries for such a low price. I've had fun discovering how various countries use related ingredients-- and I can also learn about regional specialties and favorites. I can't wait to use this for my upcoming trip to France. I'm really interested in trying fresh foods and will be able to understand the menus with the translator. If you're a foodie like I am, you'll search this invaluable.
American foodies owe a debt of gratitude to Alice Waters. She is the patron saint of California cooking, or fresh American cooking, or whatever you wish to call it. She's the one who gave us goat cheese croutons, roasted beets, mache, and so a lot of other now-ubiquitous dishes. "Former Chez Panisse chef" is just as much a brand name as the brand named meats and produce she serves at her r those reasons, I actually read The Chez Panisse Menu Cookbook cover to cover, the method one reads an MFK Fisher book - to obtain an understanding of the cook's philosophy as well as recipes. Both women write in a formal style and have powerful ideas about ingredients, preparation, presentation, and consumption. Unfortunately, Water's writing is more spare, perhaps as befits a patron saint, and lacks the pithy humor that leavens Fisher's books. Reading her prose is more like learning a lesson than being entertained.Which may be why this book struck me as an essential book for someone who wanted to learn to be a restaurant chef, but not particularly useful for someone cooking at home. Most of the menus require some final preparation of the next dish after the preceding one has been served - possible in a restaurant, but not much fun at a dinner party if the cook wants to eat with the e individual dishes are also complicated or labor-intensive, causing me to often think as I read, "I'd eat that if someone created it for me." Waters is particularly fond of leg of lamb, lobsters, and quail and her recipes for these present the difficulty in preparing them at home. First, most of the lamb recipes call for spit-roasting the leg of lamb. She even explains how to build a spit. In my spit-deficient kitchen, those recipes are not cond, while I search a steamed lobster to be a unbelievable treat on a unique occasion, Waters takes the fun out of it with instructions to semi-cook a lobster, then remove the meat and create a fumet with the shells - a process involving roasting the shells, making the broth, putting the shells in a blender, then straining the whole thing through a fine sieve - then finish cooking the lobster. Whew!Finally, quail do not usually present up on my dinner table, but if they did, I do not think I'd have the dedication to follow Walter's recipes. In most of her quail recipes she gives related instructions: "Marinate the quail in a cool put overnight . . . turning the quail four to five times during this time." No small boney bird is worth losing a night of ing this Menu Cookbook created me wish to spring for dinner at Chez Panisse, but it did not create me wish to don an apron and begin cooking.
