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…
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.
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!
My daughter has an iPhone 4 and I asked if she would download Muzzle Puzzle to have a looksie since I was asked my opinion on this game for your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
When I asked my daughter what she thought about Muzzle Puzzle she told me that this is a pretty cool, fun game that reminds her of a game called Flow but much funner. Now, I have no clue what Flow is but apparently Muzzle Puzzle is a lot more fun than Flow, at least according to my tween daughter. Must mean something good. Muzzle Puzzle is a free game app for your iOS 5.0 or higher. This app has been optimized for iPhone 5 as well.
This game may sound simple enough but it’s not so simple, download this free Muzzle Puzzle app so that the whole family can have fun trying to get more matches then the next family member. You must match each adorable monster with it’s identical partner on the game screen, but there’s a catch – no two lines can go over the other. This means you have to use your brain and thinking ahead skills to really make sure you are matching the monsters in Muzzle Puzzle up correctly. With 150 levels, Muzzle Puzzle is sure to keep your family on their toes trying to get the best high score. Once Muzzle Puzzle reaches level 50 the game turns into more of a challenge that even the most puzzle savvy adult will enjoy trying to solve.
Download Muzzle Puzzle today on the app store for free and tell me what you think of it!
I was approached to check out Jade Monkey on my iPhone, this is also available for your iPad, and today I am sharing this app with you all. I know you may just get addicted to it, like me. At the moment this app is free, it says for a limited time only. I cannot guarantee if you read this later on if the app will still be free, so download Jade Monkey on the App Store today to check it out for yourself.
This is based on the most popular game playing concept, jewel collecting, I love games like this and it’s super fun with the whole rainforest theme. The colors, the graphics, perfect! Jade Monkey allows you to collect jewels horizontally or vertically in sets of three or more same colored gems. The cool thing is you can do multiplayer in real time via Game Center. What can I say in text that video can’t show you, right? So click play below to watch the video trailer showcasing Jade Monkey.
I really do have fun playing this game, there isn’t a whole lot more to say about it because it sells itself, in my opinion. Give it a try and tell me what you think! Download Jade Monkey to your iPhone or iPad for free for limited time.

Today I am sharing Personal Best Pro app for the sports families, whether it’s you or the children who play sports this is a great app to keep track of the achievements, events or other goals met in sports. Easily add users in the home screen to create a family account. Each user may have an image assigned, name and date of birth. After each user is put into Personal Best Pro iOS app then you can start to add sports and achievements for each sport.
An easy way to remember various achievements your children or yourself have made and maybe even celebrate! I am a Mom who may be found doing a happy dance for each achievement my children make; currently my two boys are in wrestling and it’s their first year. This is my season to start happy dancing around because they did a bridge stretch higher than they did on the last practice or they started to use a wrestling move more efficiently than they did in their first week of wrestling. Whatever achievement my sons make, it’s great to have Personal Best Pro app installed so I have notes right there, this is also a great app to assist me to reviewing my son’s achievements at wrestling to tell their Dad. My son’s Dad and I are divorced, we co-parent together so this means I have to try to jot down weekly achievements to let their Dad know with a report during the week or in their folder we exchange for news and notices.
I just love this app because really the Personal Best Pro will assist me in being better at logging activities my son’s complete in their sports through out the year. During next school year when my daughter cheers and middle child is in soccer, I can also monitor their achievements and it will be fabulous to have an app in hand to do that with.
I say you take a second to go check out Personal Best Pro in the app store if you have sports running in your family – again this can be for the adults or children; it really is a useful tool to keep track of achievements that will 1) allow you to push harder next time and 2) celebrate goals reached in sports.
Personal Best Pro is free at the app store.
Today I am sharing a fun app that only costs .99 in the App Store, it’s called Spelling Super Star and it’s a fun way to help your child learn to spell. With colorful images and easy to navigate app options this is a great way to encourage a love of spelling with your child. Rate for ages 4 plus, you can enjoy some quality time over the iPhone or iPad when you download Spelling Super Star from the App Store.
I love that this app doesn’t really need much adult supervision, this means the children can feel confident that they are learning on their own. I know this is something that encourages my kids to push further, they love knowing that they accomplished something on their own! All of the artwork found in Spelling Super Star app is hand drawn, which also makes it appealing to children in my opinion. Hand drawn art in an app is more appealing to children who seem to seek child looking graphics as opposed to the plain Jane bright computerized graphics.
Features that I love on Spelling Super Star:
- Ability for children to navigate easily on their own.
- Fact that there are 800+ words that are separated into 15 categories with an All-in-One Category as an option too.
- Ability to personalize your app with 12 different backgrounds and 6 letter color options.
- Encourage healthy competition with top score lists that has the top 10 names and scores to allow your children to challenge each other and friends.
You know I am that kind of Mom who loves having my kids involved learning technology but also wants them learning something. Don’t get me wrong, I do let my kids play the average kid games like MineCraft that have little to no educational components but I am a huge advocate for fun educational games you can use on your electronic device for children. This is a great app to test out if you have a child who wants to learn to spell and increase their spelling words to impress their teacher!
