Fun app helps home cooks find new recipes and has a thriving community

See what's cooking with this new app

Most of us have at least a few recipes saved somewhere on our phones or tablets. As we peruse social media and the plethora of YouTubers, Instagram influencers, and our favorite bloggers urging us to try this or that new dish or cooking technique, it’s hard not to have established a considerable collection of digital recipes.

Part of the joy in collecting these recipes is sharing them with friends and family when you’ve found a winner. Years ago, apps like Pinterest and Facebook helped us do that to an extent, but, if we’re honest, those sites are pretty dated and limited when it comes to recipe sharing.

Thankfully, there’s a new recipe app in town. One that will help you save all of those tempting recipes, share them with your friends, and even assist you with things like grocery shopping and keeping your screen from going dark while you’re trying to cook.


Sisters and founders of Spillt, Maddy and Ann, created the clever app in the early days of COVID. The two were living together with their mother and, like everyone in those days, found themselves cooking…a lot. It didn’t take long for them to realize the need for an easy, updated, fun way to share recipes with each other and with their friends. And thus, Spillt was born.

Spillt is essentially a recipe collection app that doubles as a social media site. When you use Spillt, you can save all of your recipes in one convenient spot, share them with your friends and family, and see what everyone else is cooking at the same time. You can even follow all of your favorite food bloggers, so you never miss a new recipe post.

So if you’re looking for a great way to store and share all of those recipes you’ve got haphazardly spilled throughout your phone, it’s time to download Spillt.

Meet EatOkra, an App Highlighting Black-Owned Restaurants

For husband and wife team Anthony and Janique Edwards, their creation of the EatOkra app was a combination of both passion and timing. A Harlem native, Janique moved to Brooklyn in 2016. Excited and intent on exploring the borough, both Janique and Anthony were eager to seek out and support Black-owned businesses in the area. However, they quickly realized that finding those Black-owned businesses proved harder than expected.
"We were really seeking out Black-owned businesses to support during that time. And Anthony was also was really trying to level up his skills as a developer, wanting to build an app but just really not sure what he wanted to build," said Janique. "And because we were having this issue of finding businesses -- it wasn't something that was super convenient, I kind of made this suggestion out of frustration that he build an app that would make it super simple to find these businesses."

After a series of trials and errors, Janique and Anthony grew this seed of inspiration into EatOkra, an app that highlights Black-owned restaurants. While the app uses modern technology, EatOkra is also a social justice mission, keen on the idea that promoting Black-owned businesses is critical for the community. Since launching in 2016, EatOkra has grown exponentially and now proudly features more than 11,000 black-owned eateries, providing a platform for users to discover some truly delicious and unique local restaurants.
