I decided to make a full meal, with sides, as opposed to just one recipe. One of the charms of this website is that it gives you the ability to seamlessly pull together dinner by following step by step instructions – with everything timed to be ready all at once.
To begin with, below is what you will see when you choose your meal to prepare. Notice on the bottom right; there’s buttons to Prep and Cook, In Groceries and another button to add to your virtual cookbook, which will save it for you. When you click Prep and Cook it will begin your cooking process with a timer. In Groceries will add to a printable grocery list, which by the way enables you to add multiple recipe ingredient lists to.
I made “Italian Trio” – Linguine with Roasted Garlic Sauce, Tomato-Basil Bruschetta and Kale Salad.
Although I’m a fly by the seat of my apron kinda girl, I’m loving this very organized, precise layout. It’s designed to work for anybody trying to put a meal together, whether they’re experienced in the kitchen or not.
Each page tells you what time you’ll be eating. It automatically adjusts the time based on how long each step takes you.
Oh – shut your mouth – it even tells you when it’s time to get your drink on.
I just love me some Cooking Planit.
So, here’s the end result –
