Cooking is one skill that I have greatly improved on when we moved in here in our own little abode. I am not really a kitchen person since we grew up having a cook in my folks’ house. Then when we moved to Frisco after the wedding, there was my Mother-in-Law who did the cooking for everyone in the household including my Sister-in-Law’s family. But everything changed starting on the first day that we were on our own. I had tons of cookbooks that served as my guide and even up to this day, I continually depend on these references to cook meals for my boys. There are occasions when I could not perfect a certain dish but just the same, the effort is well appreciated which drives me more to learn. So I’m in a constant pursuit for more recipes that I can cook for them and for me to practice my cooking skill on. It’s great that cooking references are not centered on just cookbooks anymore. There’s the web where I can google gazillion recipes plus cooking related applications on the latest gadgets such as the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. One example is the iPhone application called Mixing Bowl by Meredith Corporation, designed by Sourcebits. It is a lifestyle app where one can sign up to a group of foodies and discuss, share and swap recipes with daily. I am yet to download this but judging from this preview, I’m getting a glimpse how good the iPhone App Development was.
Sourcebits also caters to designing, building and working on iPhone Games Development, Blackberry, iPad, Mobile, Mac and Android App Development. I wish they create more cooking apps for newbie cooks like me.
