4 great entertaining apps

By: Lauren McPhillips
jamie The holidays are on their way and the Apple App Store has everything you need to throw a fabulous Christmas bash. While styleathome.com has all of your party planning, decorating and tabletop ideas covered, these 4 apps are ideal for getting the best food and drink recipes at your fingertips. 1 Jamie Oliver's 20 Minute Meals ($7.99) He's British, he's cute and now he's gone mobile. With 50 brand new recipes and over 1000 hi-res step-by-step photos, this app doesn't mess around. It also includes a shopping list for each recipe that you can cross off once you've purchased. Even better? Once it's downloaded onto your Phone or iPod Touch there's no internet connection needed to access the recipes. 2 Canadian Living Mobile (free) Finally, the great recipes that our nation's own food mag produce every month are now available in mobile format. Follow their holiday countdown or check in daily for the featured 'Recipe of the Day'. Plus, check out tips on entertaining, holiday and style and bookmark recipes and articles that you want to keep close at hand. 3 Mixologist: Drink Recipes ($0.99) A party isn't a party without a great selection of mixed drinks. This app literally has every combination you can think of -- over 7,900 drink recipes, to be exact. You can browse recipes, search by what's in your liquor cabinet and also by category (Jello shots, anyone?). Definitely a must-have app for discovering your party's signature drink. 4 All Recipes Dinner Spinner (free) From the net's best user-contributed recipe website comes an equally wonderful free app. With thousands of recipes to choose from, it may seem overwhelming at first, but the Dinner Spinner portion makes it easy as pie. Just choose the dish type, ingredients and 'ready in' time amount and the app selects all the recipes that fall under those categories. Need something that's gluten-free? When using the recipe search function, you can filter what you're looking for, whether it's a variety of vegan dishes or meals with no wheat or milk.
