The app: Food Network in the Kitchen

We could all use a little more inspiration in the kitchen, whether we’re master chefs or amateurs struggling to boil water. The Food Network’s recipe finder taps into the knowledge of the channel’s resident chefs such as Alton Brown and Giada De Laurentiis, and lets you look at, save and make shopping lists from their recipes. The recipes are organized by dish — appetizers, brunch, etc. — and you can search by ingredient. The app lets you add up to six timers for various dishes, so you don’t run the risk of burning your entree while you’re tending to your sides.

Users will have to set up a Food Network account, or connect to Facebook and Twitter to access all of the features, such as sharing. The iPad version of the app offers additional perks, such as a meal planning tool and how-to videos.

Free, for iOS and Android devices.
