Spin for Dinner App
Download the MP3
We all face the constant challenge of deciding what to make for dinner but usually end up picking from one of a handful of regulars from our rotation of meals.
If you want a new spin on this regular challenge, There’s an app called Dinner Spinner you may want to check out.
The app is from the folks at AllRecipes.com and allows you select a type of dish you’re interested in, such as a salad, main course or side dish, and a main ingredient, like pasta or fish.
You also include how much time you have to prepare the meal and then give it a spin.
I tried it by asking for a main course that included chicken with less than 20 minutes to prepare it and got 25 different ideas, which all looked appetizing.
When you view the potential matches, you’ll get a long list of recipes that also includes their ratings from other users.
For those that are little more adventurous, try shaking your phone for random recipes that you may never have thought of cooking.
Those with dietary restrictions can use filters to limit the results if you’re looking for low sodium, vegetarian, high fiber or you want to avoid things like dairy.
