Epicurious- Food Phone App

  The next latest and greatest phone application I am going to review is called Epicurious. This app has been a huge success so far and it really does have a lot to offer. Basically this app is a huge recipe book on the go. It houses thousands of recipes from different areas and types of food. A huge plus of this app is it categorizes the food and drinks into categories such as snacks, desserts, healthy options, dinner party items, etc. No matter what meal you want, you will be able to find the recipe. After you get the

Wine Search I-Phone App

The next phone application I am going to review is called Wine Search. This app is available for the I-Phone and is very handy when going out to eat. If you are like me, you do not like to get ripped off when buying anything. I always try to compare prices, see if coupons are available and more just to get the most bang for my buck. With this app, you will have a piece of mind when ordering wines at restaurants and wine bars. The way this app works is when you get to a restaurant, you can look

GlutSpotter SmartPhone App

The next app I am going to review is called the GlutSpotter smartphone app. On this application for your phone, you can very easily tell if an item have gluten in it or not. This application is very important because nearly 1 in 140 Americans have Celiac disease and cannot consume gluten. With this app, if you are having any doubts, all you have to do is take a picture of the item and instantly, the app will tell you if the food is gluten free or contains gluten. How exactly does this app work? Well, by having all the

iFob I-Phone App

                The next mobile application I am going to review is called iFob. The purpose of this application is to connect with people that are within close range of you at restaurants and maybe even strike up a conversation and have someone to eat with…all over your phone.                 To me, the premise of this application is quite strange because it encourages meeting someone online at the restaurant you are at instead of going up to them and speaking to them yourself. I think if you are alone at a restaurant and want to meet someone, you should be social

This app works similar to a GPS and can help you find different types of food and coffee no matter where you are. Positives Helps

The Brickhouse Restaurant Review

The Brickhouse is another restaurant I have tried recently. You probably could come to the conclusion that I eat out a lot, but really it is only as a special treat with my boyfriend on the weekend or with interns for lunch to get to know each other. Anyway, the Brickhouse is a new restaurant that was built within the past year in Cuyahoga Falls off the Howe Ave. exit. After first seeing it built, I had always wanted to try it from the cool architectural feel, but never got around to trying it…..so finally we made it in to

Here are some tips on how I save money at my job on food… 1. Always pack your breakfast or eat before you come to work. Breakfast is very important, especially when you are
