CNET News Video: Tech inspired taste of the holidays

1:05 /

Looking to add new twist to traditional holiday meals? Instead of paging through your old cookbooks, try turning to technology for inspiration. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi serves up handy recipe apps to ensure a delicious and festive meal.

When it comes to finding delicious recipes, the old saying that we eat with our eyes is definitely true. That's why I love the app and website, Yummly. Your mouth will seriously begin watering as you scroll through the luscious food photographs tempting you to whip out your mixing bowls right then and there. You can search for recipes by using filters like prep time, nutrition and even technique. What makes Yummly truly unique is the 'Yum' button that you click whenever you see something that entices you. The 'Yums' you click, the more customized recipe recommendations you will receive. It's free for both iOS and android users. Next, check out Evernote Food. This free app for both kinds of phones acts like a Pinterest board for all of your culinary adventures. Save recipes into your virtual cook book, bookmark restaurants you'd like to try, and explore new recipes as you start to build that perfect menu. Also in the My Meals section, you can save photos and notes about the dishes you cook, or eat in a restaurant. With these two apps you'll never be short on inspiration to prepare a gourmet feasts. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
