My Favorite App (right now)…

I love to cook and love my MasterCook program.  My mom and I have been using this program for years..maybe 10ish.  So I have been very hesitant to change loyalties but was desperate.  I wanted to use my IPad but needed a good recipe app and Mastercook doesn’t have one (shame on them).  So after researching I found this!

The Recipe Box

So far I have really liked it.  It is really easy to use..all you have to do is know how to copy and paste on the Ipad and it will produce a shopping list.

Here is a one of the recipes I have added and am going to make:

Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes from Cate’s World Kitchen


  • 22 Oreos: 16 left whole, and 6 coarsely chopped
  • 2 8-oz packages cream cheese, at room temperature (Neufchatel is fine)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 275 F.
  2. Line 12 standard muffin tins and 4 ramekins (or 16 muffin tins, if you have them) with paper liners.
  3. Place 1 whole Oreo in the bottom of each lined cup.
  4. Beat the cream cheese in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium. Gradually beat in the sugar and vanilla.
  5. Pour in the beaten eggs, a little at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
  6. Beat in the sour cream and salt.
  7. Stir in chopped cookies by hand.
  8. Pour the batter into the prepared tins, filling each almost to the top.
  9. Bake, rotating pan halfway through, until filling is set, 22-25 minutes.
  10. Cool in the pans for about 15 minutes, on a wire rack, then transfer to a plate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
