Today I am sharing a free app, Look & Cook, that is found in the app store on iTunes. I was invited to check out this app to share my thoughts with you all and give it some promotion out here in the Internet world. I must say based on the name and description I wasn’t quite sure if this would be the “app for me”, but upon further evaluation I must admit this is a fabulous app. Here’s why…

Look & Cook App

As a Mom who has been actively seeking new recipes each week to make wholesome, fresh cooked meals for the family, the Look & Cook app brings to me a more visual approach to finding recipes. My daughter and I had fun looking through the pictures shown in Look & Cook to find a cool recipe idea for our next kitchen experience together.

Overall, I must admit I am a visual person and while searching the Internet for recipes based on recipe titles worked, there is something more about having an app like the Look & Cook that fuels your visual desires. With a swipe of your finger you can start to see pictures of meals and if the picture appeals to you simply click a button on the bottom of the screen to bring up the recipe. The recipe is a full list of what ingredients you will need and how to best prepare the meal you saw in the prior screen on Look & Cook.

Look & Cook Visual Recipes

There are so many categories of recipes to look through that we haven’t even completely gone through all of them but so far my daughter and I are thinking some of the dessert ideas will suit us just fine with Spring and Summer time get togethers.  The awesome part of having Look & Cook app on my iPhone is that while I am in the store grocery shopping each week, I can simply bring up the recipe on my iPhone for the list of ingredients to purchase rather than using a piece of paper hoping that I wrote all ingredients down properly. There have been one too many occasions when I wrote a list of ingredients but hadn’t copied the list correctly so came home to unpack groceries only to see I missed something. Look & Cook allows me to be more efficient in ensuring I get the complete list of ingredients and it has opened our eyes as a family to a whole new selection of foods we want to test out.

Look & Cook is a free app and you can click here to check out more details, download it today for free on your iPhone or iPad and come back here leaving a comment to tell me what you think about this app. I am curious how Look & Cook fits into your lifestyle after seeing how amazingly it fit into mine!

      Rosey, Rob here from the Look&Cook team! thanks for the kind words! Have you tried any of the recipes yet? Would love to hear how you get on!

    This sounds like a must-have app! I am so bad at making lists & meal planning, but if I had the recipe with me, it would save me from making a second trip to the store for what I forgot.

    • Rob (28 comments)

      Thanks Robin! I’m sure the app will help with all (or at least most) of your cooking woes :)

    I really like the visual aspect of the app. Sometimes text directions don’t quite let you know how, how much etc. Being able to see before you try is just what I need.

    • Rob (28 comments)

      Kenda, thanks for the positive words! This is exactly why we created the app… pictures speak a thousand words. beautiful pics speak 10,000 words ;)

    • Rob (28 comments)

      Rob here from Look&Cook- exactly. We wanted as many people as possible to enjoy the recipes… free is the best way to do that! Would love to hear what you think once you’ve downloaded it!

    I’m totally a visual person too, especially when it comes to food and recipes.

    • Rob (28 comments)

      Being a visual person, do you think you’d cook better with photos, or video?

  8. Susanna Barbee (Zealous Mom) (11 comments)

    I have just recently heard of this app and can’t wait to try it. With a picky husband and two little boys, I’m always looking for new recipes to please all of us!

    This perfect! I love cooking and this will definitely expand my repertoire here in my kitchen.

  15. Kecia (22 comments)

    I love being able to see the ingredients I need on my phone rather than a list. Like you, I tend to mess it up when I make a handwritten list!

    • Rob (28 comments)

      you should try laying it all out nice and neat on the table like on the app… you end up getting quite OCD… ;)

  16. Lisa Thompson (5 comments)

    I love how apps have made life easier! I’ll definitely be checking out this app as I’m always on the lookout for new healthy recipes for my family!

  17. Jenni E. (8 comments)

    I’m a very visual person and I really like to see what a recipe is supposed to look like. First, I want to know if it looks appetizing. Second, I have to have something to go by so that I know whether I made it right or not, haha! I love free apps…heading over to check it out!

  18. Chrysa (20 comments)

    I have always loved cook books and now I love cooking apps. I’ll have to check this one out!
