    I want to mention that my wife and I just published another Food app for Android only that I think will be really useful.  It is called Food Substitutes.  Here is a intro for it. 
    Android users – Check out this brand new app!! Have you ever been in the middle of making dinner and realized you don’t have an ingredient? This app tells you what you can substitute for it!! It has over 100 foods and over 230 subs and it is super easy to use. Made by a young couple (the Hedges, if you know them). You can follow this link or find it in the Play Store – there’s a $.99 version and a free trial!
