| February 6, 2012 | 7 Replies

Anyone who’s searched for an online recipe before has definitely stumbled on which offers a great range of amazingly delicious recipes whether it’s a snack, dessert or lunch you’re looking for. Allrecipes gives you an extensive list of Lunches/Snacks/Dinners/Desserts each with it’s own detailed instructions/required ingredients, prep time, Nutritional information, user reviews & Ratings.

When searching for a dish you can specify specific classifications for the dish such as: Low fat, High Fiber, No wheat, No dairy, Vegan, Vegetarian and much more; which is extremely useful is your following a specific diet  or regimen. The coolest feature however is something called “Dinner Spinner” which lets you choose a course, main ingredient and prep time and will bring up the best results (Ex: Main Dish containing Chocolate that preps in less than 45 mins will give you Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Porridge, Chewy Granola Chocolate Chip Bars and Chocolate pancakes- Anyone willing to cook for me??)

Allrecipes is available free (with ads) in the marketplace, or if you don’t have a Lumia phone yet go to for the same taste cravings.
