This simple question can be very stressful. But there's good news: Let's Be Chefs can help! Each week, we'll send you recipes for complete meals right to your phone, so you'll always have the answer. Easy peasy.
We focus on simple, easy to follow recipes, that don't use a lot of crazy ingredients. While we're not a "health food" service, we strive to have relatively balanced, nutritious meals that the whole family (kids included!) will love. Your family will definitely be impressed!
Our apps are easy to use, look great, and feature high-quality pictures of every meal!
We think you're pretty special. You have unique thoughts, tastes, and needs. So why should you get the same meal plan as everyone else? With Let's Be Chefs, you won't! As you rate recipes, we'll learn your likes and dislikes, and create menus that are tailored specifically for you and your family. You deserve it.
On the menu page, you can schedule your meals by changing the dates and times on the recipe cards (or unschedule recipes by clicking the green checkbox in the bottom left corner of the card). Planning your whole week can be done in as little as 2 minutes!
When you give a recipe a 5-star rating, it'll automatically be saved as a "favorite." From the menu page, click on the circular arrow icon (bottom left of a recipe card) to replace a recipe with one of your favorites. So much easier than sorting through cookbooks, printouts, or complicated websites.
It's pretty annoying when you come across a recipe that is written for a different number of servings than you need. You end up having to convert units on the fly and put your knowledge of fractions to the test. So you'll be relieved to know that with Let's Be Chefs, you can change the number of servings for a recipe and the ingredient quantities will automatically update. No need to break out that calculator watch.
Are you still using a hand-written grocery list? Or an app where you manually have to enter in each ingredient? Instead, add an entire recipe to the grocery list with just one click. It's a YUGE time saver!
Add your own items to the list by entering the name in the textbox at the top of your grocery list. You can edit the item by clicking the "pencil" icon prior to adding it to the list, or by clicking on the item name once it's been added.
As you add your own items to the grocery list, we'll learn what items you buy frequently, and we'll let you know when it's time to buy them again. Click the "Suggested Items" button at the bottom of your grocery list to see what items you might need. It's a real time saver and helps you to remember to buy those essential items!
When you add items to the grocery list, we'll sort them into categories based on grocery store aisle. This way, you can make sure you get all your produce items before leaving the produce section. It's always such a bummer to have to go back for that one missed item because your list wasn't well organized.
Quit trying to keep track of various written grocery lists and instead, store them all within the app! From the grocery page, click the settings menu and select "modify lists" to add more grocery lists. You could even use one list as a simple "to do" list.
Each Wednesday, we'll send you a notification when next week's menu is available. You'll have plenty of time to plan out your week and do your grocery shopping. Plus, if you haven't added one of your recipes to the grocery list, we'll send you a reminder a few days ahead of time so you know to stop by the store. Our goal is to make your life easier.
On the menu page, be sure to specify what time you'd like to have dinner ready, and we'll send you a notification when it's time to start cooking. You'll always have dinner on the table on time and never have to panic because a meal took longer than you were prepared for!
The worst is when your hands are all grimey and you turn to check the recipe on your phone just as the screen turns off. Never again! While you're on the recipe page or the grocery list, your screen will automatically stay on! (You can turn off this feature from the settings page.)
Once you use this feature, you won't know how you ever lived without it. As you cook, just tap the step of the recipe you're on and it will highlight so that you don't lose your place. Mind. Blown.
One of the most time-consuming parts of cooking is preparing the ingredients (chopping, dicing, pre-baking chicken, etc.). With Prep-Aheads, we'll let you know if you should, for example, chop an extra onion for a recipe you're making later in the week. It saves you time and dishes. Total game changer.
Ever tweaked a recipe and then forgot what you had changed the next time you went to make it? At the bottom of each recipe, we've provided a spot for you to jot down notes! Include tweaks, ingredient substitutions, thoughts, or whatever else you'd like to be reminded of next time you make the meal.
Your grocery lists and menus will sync between multiple devices (just pull down to refresh). This means you can make your grocery list and ask your significant other to stop by the grocery store on the way home from work! Your family will be running so efficiently, you just might be the next hottest boy band. (Get it?! Because you're in-sync! N'sync?! *Groan*)
