It is the time of the year that I bake a lot getting ready for the Holidays. For me baking is total relaxation. I listen to Christmas music and prepare treats for friends and family. It is my passion and in another life I will own a bakery.
If you would ask me what is your favorite tool in the kitchen, I would answer a tablet. I am using it all the time to cook and bake. I can browse food websites, blogs, read food magazines, watch TV shows and have quick access to recipes on my blog.
Please read to find out how I am using my new tablet:
Browsing La Cuisine d'Hélène for recipes. The pictures are crisps and beautiful. I like the size of this Google Nexus 7 so much. It fits in my hand.
I am a bit obsessed with Pinterest. I could look at food pictures all day long. I am using the App on my tablet and it works like a charm.
One of my favorite App is Evernote. I use it like a cookbook and store my recipes. I can have quick access to them from anywhere.
It is a breeze to browse La Cuisine d'Hélène on the Google Nexus 7.
Fun cooking Apps for free!
They also have many Recipes Apps for free. I like Epicurious and BHG.
