My husband finally convinced me to get an Iphone. I know, I know, twist my arm. I usually hesitate with the latest techno gadget, but I’m learning that it’s inevitable, so I might as well embrace it.

On a side note, when we were first married, I remember my husband telling me that I needed a cell phone. He had one, so I didn’t see the point in having one, because we could just share right? Well we all know how that worked out. Now I talk on the phone more than him, and I wonder why we even have a house phone.

Anyway, back to the iphone…I love organization, but my perfectionism often prevents me from finding the ‘perfect’ way to organize. Recipes are one of those things that I have yet to figure out how to keep organized…but not electronically. MacGourmet is a software system that categorizes recipes and allows you to ‘clip’ new recipes. You can then plan your meals and it will create a shopping list for you. Pretty sweet…except sometimes I never take the time to actually do it. The good news is that macgourmet has an app for my phone. It syncs with my computer automatically. So now all my recipes and shopping lists are on my phone!

I also utilize quite often. Just this week came out with a dinner spinner app. Not only does it give you access to all of its recipes, but it also allows you to choose your categories and your time allowances, and it will give you recipe matches. How sweet is that!
