Butterball Cookbook Plus is the ideal companion for your holiday meals.

butterball3Cooking Thanksgiving dinner can be very intimidating for some people. I know it was for me the first time I did it. In fact, preparing the Turkey is still somewhat of a nerve-wracking experience. One of the simplest ways to ease your mind is to download the Butterball Cookbook Plus app for iOS. With over 60 years of experience talking turkey, Butterball’s app is the perfect companion for your Thanksgiving feast.

The Butterball Cookbook Plus app has been in the market since 2012 and we featured a review of it during the holiday season last year. It’s a very comprehensive, educational app for cooking. I am happy to announce that Butterball has released a new and improved version of Butterball Cookbook Plus just in time for the holidays. Version 4.0 was released in early November with a small update (4.1) following later in the month. With this update users will receive a brand new look, detailed nutritional information for recipes, new seasonal recipes and access to promotional offers from Butterball and its partners.

First of all, there are three awesome tools – Ingredient Substitutes, Conversion Chart and Turkey Calculator. The Turkey Calculator is probably my favorite of the three tools even though I will probably use the Conversion Chart more often throughout the year. Within the Turkey Calculator, you can find the ideal size turkey based off of the number of people attending your gathering, discover how long you will need to thaw your turkey and how long you will need to cook it. This information is sometimes hard to come by easily, but Butterball has included that in this app that fits in the palm of your hand.

Another feature that I love is the How-To Videos. The How-To Videos require an internet connection to view, but they are very helpful. The four that are included currently in the app are How to Choose Your Turkey, How to Thaw Your Turkey, How to Roast Your Turkey, and How-to Carve Your Turkey. Each video is only a couple of minutes long, but they are very useful, especially to the first-time Thanksgiving chef.

butterball1I was especially excited to see the addition of the Promotions. I feel that this might be a work in progress and think we will see some really great updates in the future. I’m somewhat of a connosuire of coupon apps and think that the layout of this section could be condensed and cleaned up some. That being said, it’s a great addition to the app. This time of year we are all looking for ways to save money and Butterball including the promotions within the app makes it easier for everyone.

Butterball Cookbook Plus is a must for chefs this holiday season. It’s free to download and available on both iOS and Android mobile platforms. For more information, visit butterball.com.
