I've had several recipe apps, but this one is my favorite by far! It is really easy to use, great for planning out what you're going to eat and makes creating a shopping list for those recipes a breeze. Sometimes I get in a hurry and forget to select the Cuisine, Main Ingredient, Tags, etc. It would be great if there was a feature to "reclassify" selected recipes in bulk and add those drop down list options instead of having to do it one at a time.

I love this app. Meal planning used to be a chaotic chore with trying to remember if I'd tried a recipe, if my family had liked it, or if it was just something I had saved for later. It's easy to find duplicates and being able to put my recipes into groups makes meal planning even more pleasant. Additionally, I don't have to rummage around trying to put a shopping list together anymore, as the app helps me keep track of all that. Some of those ingredients will be things I have on hand, but it's never a bad idea to check to make sure one has enough anyhow. Tends to be a bad day when you get into cooking a meal and figure out you only have *half* as much of an ingredient as is called for. I also really enjoy the fact that I can add things to my "freezer" and keep track of what is prepared and waiting to be cooked. I'm so glad to have found this app, as I no longer have to wonder "what's for dinner?".

I love this app. There's some work getting it set up on the front end--adding in your recipes, setting up the shopping aisles to ensure a shopping list in the exact order of your progress through the store (if you care about that). But I've been using PlanToEat for years and I love it!

What's new

- We updated the trial length for new accounts to 14 days.
- We updated the recipe form so it always displays an error if it is submitted without a title.
