Top Must Have Thanksgiving Apps- Appitalism

Gluten-free or not, we all need a little advice for the holidays.  I think this list of apps for the iPhone are very cool!  I'm getting ready to add a couple myself.  I especially will pay for the app by Mark Bittman, one of my favorite chefs and cookbook authors. He really is amazing,  

Thanksgiving is almost upon us, thus bringing with it the holiday rush of anticipation and family gatherings.  As stressful as this might be, it also means succulent turkey in the oven, post-dinner hibernation, and a slew of relatives you haven’t seen, or perhaps don’t want to see, buzzing over the latest conversation and gorging over the delectable edibles put in front of them.

To coincide with this most plentiful of and feast-filled holiday, (the mobile app superstore), the first site to combine a social community with an online store to help consumers quickly and easily discover, discuss and download the best digital content for all devices, recommends the following apps for the best in thanksgiving preparation, recipes, and amusement sure to keep you out of that turkey-induced coma.

The app includes hundreds of Thanksgiving recipes, including Green Bean Casserole, Candied Sweet Potatoes, and plenty of recipes for that perfect Turkey. is also useful because you can see user ratings, which makes it easier to pick the best recipes. If you're on a budget, the Dinner Spinner app is a great pick for planning your Thanksgiving meal.


Epicurious Recipes (Free for iPhone)

Epicurious has a dedicated section for Thanksgiving, and it includes nearly 200 recipes from Gourmet and Bon Appétit magazines. If you're not sure how you want to cook your turkey, this is the app for you. There are a ton of turkey recipes, including Clementine-Salted Turkey with Redeye Gravy and Sage Butter-Roasted Turkey. Those planning a vegetarian Thanksgiving will also appreciate veggie-friendly holiday recipes like Vegetarian Shepherd's Pie or Pumpkin Stuffed with Vegetable Stew. 



Whole Foods Market Recipes (Free for iPhone)

The Whole Foods Market Recipes app are healthy and include nutrition information -- not that you're likely to be worried about calories and fat grams on Thanksgiving! One of my favorite recipes is the Thanksgiving Weekend Strata, which uses leftover stuffing. You could also try the Roasted Parsnips and Sweet Potatoes with Honey-Pecan Drizzle in place of your normal marshmallow-topped sweet potato recipe.



How to Cook Everything for iPhone ($4.99 for iPhone)

Mark Bittman's popular How to Cook Everything app has thousands of recipes, including many specifically for Thanksgiving. There are Thanksgiving recipes for all the popular dishes, including Classic Roast Turkey with Stuffing, Traditional Cranberry Sauce, and Pumpkin Pie with Gingersnap Crust. If this is your first time preparing a Thanksgiving meal, you'll also find lots of how-to content.
