Windows Phone Central App Roundup: Cooking Apps

Okay... so yesterday was Thanksgiving and many of you are dining on leftovers for the next week (or longer). The last Windows Phone Central App Roundup some may want to see if one on cooking. Still this roundup may give you a few ideas on what to do with all those leftovers or help you get a jump on cooking for the upcoming Holiday dinners.

Regardless of the Holidays, you can always find a reason to prepare a great home cooked meal. The apps in today's roundup will help you find recipes, walk you through preparing the meal, find an appropriate beverage and even help you when you really don't feel like cooking.

We picked five apps from the Windows Phone Store that stood out but realize that we might have missed one or two worth mentioning. If so, feel free to share your favorite cooking app in the comments.

It certainly has been a busy few days for "official" apps. You know, the ones from big names stores, media companies, services, etc that have come to define modern commerce. Yesterday we saw Best Buy and Amazon.com Fresh (a WP7 exclusive) and in addition there were more that we missed:

  • Dictionary.com - "The FREE Dictionary.com app delivers trusted reference content from Dictionary.com and Thesaurus.com, including over 2,000,000 words. It also features audio pronunciation and updated daily content." Grab it here in the Marketplace.
  • Eventful - "Do you love music and seeing it performed live? Eventful helps you easily find shows happening around you in a clean, intuitive interface native to Windows Phone. At your fingertips you'll have access to millions of events, schedules for all of the venues near you, and tour dates for over 130,000 performers." Get it here in the Marketplace.
  • GoWalla - "Gowalla is a social travel guide that makes it easy to keep up with friends, share photos, highlight your favorite places and discover the world around you. It's like totally available EVERYWHERE, so you'll be able to record and share your adventures no matter where you go." You can grab it here in the Marketplace.
  • Weight Watchers PointsPlus Calculator - "Shopping for food or eating out? Use this calculator to easily and quickly work out the PointsPlusTM values of any food or activity when you’re on the go. It’s available exclusively to Weight Watchers Online and eTools subscribers for FREE – just enter your Online or eTools username and password to log in and start using the calculator." That's found here in the Marketplace.
  • Betty Crocker Cookbook - "What's for dinner? Ask Betty using the mobile version of the world-famous Betty Crocker cookbook!" The app is developed by Chaotic Moon Studios. Get your cookin 'on here in the Marketplace.
  • Epicurious - "Recipes from the award-winning food site. Epicurious.com are now available on your mobile device. Search more than 30,000 delicious recipes..." Grab those recipes right here in the Marketplace.

Personally, we're excited about Eventful--that app is pretty awesome (though a bit overwhelming in Manhattan!). Combined with Angry Birds, Kik Messenger, AllRecipes.com and the Colber Report's The Word and we sure have a packed house. And it's only Wednesday. (Thanks, @MajorCrash, Shane S., & Larry B., for the heads up!)
