Using the iPad for cooking

Last week, STA and I bought some bok choy at United Noodle (along with a whole bunch of other cool stuff, including Pocky Sticks for Men–for men because they are dark chocolate). We used my iPad to find a recipe (thank you epicurious app!) and then followed the recipe directly from the iPad (perched on my nifty stand that I got for my birthday). Apparently, Martha Stewart uses her iPad in the same way–at least, that’s what @KJCFalcon told me that she read from Martha Stewart’s twitter feed.

Here are a few pictures:

Epicurious is a great place to find good recipes; even better than What the fuck should I make for dinner? What do you think STA?

    I LOVE IT!

    Here’s an honest question however, what happens if your hand is dirty and you need to scroll down? Did you find any issues with that? I guess, the same issue happens when you have a paper recipe or a book, but I often get a lot of food splatters or random things happen in the kitchen that end up landing on said recipe or book causing quite a mess. I guess what I’m saying is I might be too scared to bring my iPad into the kitchen. Martha Stewart totally uses her iPad in the kitchen, but she can afford a new one if a pot of boiling water spilled on it!

    Great question. I was a little nervous about having it in the kitchen and I think that if/when I use it in the future I will put it a little farther away from the food. I also need to redo the settings so that the screen doesn’t go to sleep every few minutes.

    I love epicurious and have used it for years. Also, I bring my laptop in the kitchen since I remodeled. I keep it on my peninsula, pushed back a bit. If I’m working on a time consuming recipe, I often watch something on Netflix.
