"A few things to take away from R. Kelly’s grocery list:
Dinosaur-shaped chicken nuggets exist and R. Kelly wants them.
Anyone shopping from this list better not select more than three bananas or fewer than three bananas. The only acceptable number of bananas is three.
R. Kelly will cut his own romaine lettuce spears, thank you very much."

Buy Me A Pie!, the cloud-powered grocery list maker for iOS, has finally made good on its promise and brought the app to Google’s Android mobile OS. Similar to the iPhone version, the Android offering comes in two flavours: a free Buy Me A Pie! app that shuns the cloud synchronisation which lets shopping lists be shared across devices (and family members), and a paid-for version that, along with cloud support, offers additional features such as multiple shopping lists, and list sharing via SMS, email and with other apps

Pepperplate Logo

 I met Gretta, one of the founders of Pepperplate,  nearly two years ago through a food blogger friend. She told me about Pepperplate and demonstrated how it works on an iPad. I was amazed at what it can do. Pepperplate takes a different approach. Instead of being pre-populated with recipes, it let you bookmark and save recipes into your Pepperplate account. From there, you create weekly meal plans,  grocery lists also share recipes with friends.

For Thanksgiving, Pepperplate is a hero. As a food blogger, I have been obsessively bookmarking recipes that I want to use for Thanksgiving. Pepperplate has a Chrome browser bookmarklet, so you can easily import recipes when you spot them.  Pepperplate manages your recipes which can be combine into Thanksgiving menus, then share with friends and family before and after the big day. Pepperplate syncs on your devices so it automatically arranges the list to the way you do grocery shopping. Pepperplate also has with multiple cooking timers on its iPad version so you can keep track each dish. 

One of the best things about Pepperplate is that is not only FREE, it is platform agnostic. It is available one the web, iPad, iPhone, Android, Kindle Fire, NOOK and Windows 8.
