Real Recipes Real Recipes, powered by About.com, provides a new twist on the dozens of recipe apps already out there. Rather than entering the specific type of dish you'd like to make, aspiring chefs pick the key ingredient they want to use (i.e fish, eggs, duck, fruit, etc.), the method of preparation (fry, grill) and the type of meal (lunch, salad, entree). The app then spits out dozens of relatively simple recipes based on their choices, complete with user reviews. Real Recipes also includes a "learn to cook" section with instructions about how to cut beef, keep food safe and choose kitchen equipment. One downside? Most of the recipes we saw didn't contain photos.
