Kitchen Buddy: My New App!

Kitchen Buddy Mobile Icon

Kitchen Buddy Mobile Icon

Yes, folks, it’s KITCHEN BUDDY, your personal helper in the kitchen, right on your mobile device! Important information like cooking times, cooking methods, and flavour combinations, all at your fingertips. It’s FREE, and comes with three free recipes, two of which are my family favorites. For a paltry sum, additional sets of recipes could be purchased through the app store. Download now!

Well, not really. It’s only a simulation. But it’s a full-fledged simulation, looking just like it would appear on the screen of your mobile device! Check it out here: http://apps.appypie.com/marketplace/iphone-android/kitchen-buddy

As a side note, regrettably, the Appy Pie engine I created the app on thought my icon was too big, and you can’t see it in the thumbnail. Sorry about that.

Reference list disclaimers: Icon and background are self-made in Photoshop CS6. All other images are found on Flickr and are Creative-Commons licensed. Scrambled eggs recipe is from personal knowledge – while I certainly learned it somewhere, it was a long time ago and I can’t remember where. The Macaroni hot-pot is a favorite of my dad’s, and I’m sure he found it somewhere, too, but we’ve been making it so long, that source has been lost. Other cooking knowledge mostly obtained through watching the Food Network show, “Good Eats”, now off the air. Specific episodes are not cited, as I absorbed the knowledge and accepted it as general, though I have cited the show itself in the references. Additionally, I used Google’s URL shortening tool (https://goo.gl/) to shorten the Flickr URLs so my references page wasn’t as long as the human genome sequence.
