This is a sponsored conversation by the all new Hoorray app. All opinions are my own... thanks for supporting the brands that support Shared Appetite!
There was a time in my life when all my friends had these things called smart phones and I was still using the old school classic Razr. I didn't need it, I told myself. I wouldn't use it, I self-rationalized. I held out for a looooooong time. But then I got one. Holy jeebus where has this been all my life?!?!
And listen, as much as I love
wasting effectively using my time scrolling through the same social apps over and over again, this new app called Hoorray is pretty darn sweet. It's made for people like me (i.e. people that constantly have food on their mind).
Hoorray is the new social cooking app for food lovers that want a community for learning, sharing, and improving their everyday cooking experience. Basically, imagine an entire app that is dedicated to all things food. You can connect with fellow foodies, see what they are cooking (and they can see what's going on in your pots and pans), and can share recipes, food photos, and more!
I've already downloaded the app and started playing around on it. Take a look at what I've been up to...
I created my profile (check out that good-looking dude in the photo) and uploaded my first 5 recipes. They just so happen to be some of my favorites... and some of the most popular on Shared Appetite!
Creating a recipe is super easy... snap a photo of your finished dish, enter in all the info, and boom... you're done. The Hoorray app makes it really easy... it took me just a couple minutes to input each recipe. What I also love about this app is that you can add photos of each step of the cooking process. This is super helpful when it's hard to put into words what a certain step should look like.
Legit. Look at what the finished recipe looks like. Super easy to read and a beautiful interface. LOVE.
Here's a really cool feature. You can keep track of what you want to make and then add the ingredients you don't have on hand to your shopping list! It's as easy as looking at the recipe's ingredients, clicking on what you need to buy, and ta da... instant shopping list.
Making a recipe on Hoorray? You can let all your friends know by sharing it on your What's Cookin timeline. Two reasons why you'll want to do this step... first, to make all your friends jealous of the good eats you're about to be devouring. Second, by all your friends sharing what they are cooking, it'll give you a little food inspiration to try it yourself.
On your What's Cookin' timeline, you can discover who's commenting and liking your recipes, as well as what all your friends are doing. Maybe they are making some sweet-looking nachos. Or they are baking a salted caramel apple pie (in which case you can conveniently invite yourself over to their house for dessert).
When you want to explore some new recipes or food collections (or meet some new awesome fellow lovers of food), you can use the search function! Obviously, your first step should be to search for me so we can be Hoorray friends. And then make sure to friend my buddy Matt from Real Food By Dad.
Let's recap. An app dedicated to food. Gather recipes from chefs, bloggers, and fellow food lovers. Get inspired by food and connect with the recipe creator. Make your shopping list. Share what you've been cooking. Welcome foodies... finally an app specifically for us!
