  • Great food, ok app

    By DMOON1011
    The food is perfect... Duh. Rick Bayless is the man. I just wish you would update the app with some new recipes. To be honest I would pay for updates.
  • Never has been updated

    By VM45s
    Great while it lasts but they have never updated this even once. Crazy. Also for the sound issue people, you need to manually turn your volume on for this app if you have your ring set to buzz. I would love to come back and give this app a higher rating in exchange for even a tiny update here and there.

    Too bad I can't get my money back. All the recipes on this app are very easy to find if one google searches. Very disappointed. 😠
  • Great App

    By BigDaddy2u2
    I like Rick Bayles, but I thought for sure the 2.99 app would include as many recipes as the website!!
  • Rick Bayless can do no wrong!

    By AL2283
    This is by far the best cooking/recipe app I've ever used. The videos are wonderful and how the recipes are linked to ingredients is so helpful when at the store! I'm a huge fan of Rick Bayless and I can't wait for more stuff to be added to this app.
  • Good app

    By arachknight
    Needs more recipes !!!!
  • More Recipes, please!

    By Solistca
    I completely love Rick, his food, show, restaurants, etc. But this app should have more. If you've been to his website, you'll see everything this app is missing. Update this with all that's included on the website and I'll update this review with 5 stars.
  • Need more recipes....

    By chicoAZ
    This is a good app if you like his TV shows and have read his cooking books. I'm not happy with the limited number of recipes/videos. I paid money for this app..... I expect more options.
