Stress-less holiday cooking with Butterball Cookbook Plus App

Butterball Cookbook Plus invited me to share my thoughts and opinions are its app. For my thoughts, I will be compensated for my time.

Before you know it, your family will be sitting down to your holiday meal. If this thought makes you nervous, you aren't the only person with these feelings. From dry, over cooked turkeys to raw meat, cooking a holiday meal can bring tremendous stress.

Before you cancel the event and order pizza, Butterball has a helpful holiday cooking app to alleviate your stress.

The Butterball Cookbook Plus, available for free on iTunes, is the only hands free recipe app. While you are making the stuffing or whipping the potatoes you can stay on track for a delicious meal.

The Butterball Cookbook Plus app offers the following.

  • For holiday guests with dietary restrictions, Butterball® Cookbook Plus also features in-app purchases for additional themed recipe packs
  • Voice Commands: Advance recipe instructions, with simple voice
  • My Recipe Box: Bookmark your favorite recipes from within the app and add recipes from your personal collection
  • Network with Friends and Family: Share what you're cooking with friends and family via email and Facebook
  • Kitchen Tools: Access to multiple timers, substitution lists, and measurement conversion charts
  • Shopping List: Tag ingredients directly from a recipe and add them your shopping list. Print or email your list.
  • Have questions? Check out our articles from experts (ie: roasting and thawing schedules) and how-to videos (ie: how to carve a turkey)
Personally, one of my favorite aspects of the app is that every recipe comes with a picture. While I know my final product may not be as picture perfect, the picture gives me the visual confidence that my creation is on track. Plus, the recipes and directions are simple and easy to follow. No need for elevated culinary terms or techniques. Butterball offers recipes that you can complete with confidence.

While picking the main portion of the meal, i.e. the protein, can be easy, I often struggle with my side dishes. It can be difficult to find a side dish that can appeal to many different preferences. With the Butterball Cookplus Plus app, I found several side dishes that would appeal to a diverse crowd. One dish is the Wild Mushroom Quinoa Dressing. This dish works as a side to your juicy turkey or as an option for a vegetarian guest.

Also, the Butterball Cookbook Plus isn't just for the holidays. Each month the app offers new free recipes. More recipes keeps your family from being bored and increases your cooking proficiency. It's a win win situation for everyone.
