These days, I’ve pretty much shelved my cookbooks and rely solely on my iPad to help walk me through my kitchen masterpieces. Or attempts at them, anyway. So when I heard that one of my favorite food writers and New York Times bestselling cookbook author’s app was on super sale, I was excited. Very excited.

Based on Mark Bittman’s uber popular How to Cook Everything cookbook, this app features over 2000 recipes and 400 how-to illustrations, including technique, equipment, even ingredients, all of which are super handy for moms like me who can use all the help I can get in the kitchen, but also for you domestic goddesses who want to perfect your performance.

And best of all, the app is half off just in time for Mother’s Day. So, grab it for the mom you love or treat yourself. And then hand your gadget over to your husband or partner so they can use it to make you the best breakfast in bed you’ve ever had. -Kristen

Now through May 8th, get Mark Bittman’s “How to Cook Everything” app for 50% off at

*Edited: Contrary to the information we received, it’s iPhone version that’s on sale.
