A Free iPad App to be Thankful For

Not sure what side dishes to make for Thanksgiving? A new iPad app from Fine Cooking magazine serves up over 75 recipes, an interactive shopping list, links to how-to videos and other cooking tips for your turkey day.

The Thanksgiving Menu Maker divides recipes into starters, main dishes, sides and desserts. Desserts range from autumn fruit crisp to brown butter pumpkin layer cake to chocolate pecan pie. Yum!

Each recipe has a description, serving size, photo, ingredients, cooking instructions and nutritional information per serving.

Editor’s Notes: The app is free, but it is loaded with banner ads and “sponsored” recipes. You can access all recipes offline, but you'll need an Internet connection for all the extra media and information on Finecooking.com, such as instructional videos, an article on what to drink, 21 turkey tips and a "Thanksgiving 911" list of holiday-food disasters and how to avoid or fix them.
