Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Cooking Apps

Okay... so yesterday was Thanksgiving and many of you are dining on leftovers for the next week (or longer). The last Windows Phone Central App Roundup some may want to see if one on cooking. Still this roundup may give you a few ideas on what to do with all those leftovers or help you get a jump on cooking for the upcoming Holiday dinners.

Regardless of the Holidays, you can always find a reason to prepare a great home cooked meal. The apps in today's roundup will help you find recipes, walk you through preparing the meal, find an appropriate beverage and even help you when you really don't feel like cooking.

We picked five apps from the Windows Phone Store that stood out but realize that we might have missed one or two worth mentioning. If so, feel free to share your favorite cooking app in the comments.

Windows Phone Central's Roundup of Apps for the Ladies

While we have touched upon Windows Phone apps that are focused more towards our female audience from time to time, we thought a Roundup of app's for the ladies in the audience was in order.

Granted a lot of our Windows Phone apps appeal to both the men and women in the audience but there are a large selection of apps that cater primarily to the girls. From health apps focuses on women's needs to shopping apps we rustled up a small collection of apps that might appeal to the women Windows Phone users.

As with any roundup, we may have overlooked a particular title that you are rather fond of. This oversight shouldn't reflect poorly on that title, it's just a matter of time and limited space. If we've miss an app, feel free to share your recommendation in the comments.

Dinner Spinner from Allrecipes.com

The official Marketplace title is Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner and this Windows Phone app will not only help you decide what to cook, it will also make you hungry.

Dinner Spinner accesses over 40,000 user submitted recipes from Allrecipes.com. The app highlights a daily recipe, has a favorite recipe page for dishes you just can't get enough of and a spinning wheel of sorts to help you decide what's for dinner.

The Dinner Spinner has three categories, dish type, ingredients (key), and time (how long to cook). At first launch, the items in each category spin like a slot machine. If you like the results, hit the check mark to pull up the recommended recipes. If you don't like what you see, shake your Windows Phone for another spin. Or you can reduce the randomness by only spinning (by finger swipe) the category of your choosing.

Recipes can also be searched by keyword and filtered by categories (vegetarian, high fiber, no dairy, etc.). If you like to cook and are looking for a healthy collection of recipes, Dinner Spinner is worth a try.

Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner is a free app and you can download it here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.
