We cook a lot of meals in my house. Most our dinners are cooked right here at home and most of those meals come from recipes. We don't do well when it comes to creating food combinations on our own so we are really great at following a recipe. We have stacks of recipe books and stacks of printed out sheets of paper with recipes we printed on them. It is quite the disaster in our kitchen. That is until I received our digital recipe reader from Key Ingredient where we instantly fell in love! Here it is right out of the box.
It comes with a stand attached on the back so it is super easy to keep upright in the kitchen. This piece of technology is made for the kitchen! Sturdy and we have had plenty of sticky fingers all over this and it always wipes clean.

Completely kitchen-safe and mess-proof, the sealed glass touch-screen of the Key Ingredient Recipe Reader can be easily wiped off with a damp cloth to remove kitchen grime. The Reader can be set up vertically or horizontally for easy viewing and includes three separate kitchen timers that can run simultaneously. A conversion calculator and ingredient substitution tool are available for dealing with precise measurements or researching alternate ingredients.
All you have to do is sign into your Key Ingredient account and browse all the amazing looking recipes. When you find ones that you like just click to add them to your recipe reader cookbook.

We needed to make a girly treat recently for a party so we decided to try the Strawberries & Cream Popcorn Recipe straight from the site.
- cup corn kernels, popped on the stovetop
- 1 cup lite corn syrup
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 3oz box strawberry jello
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 bag mini marshmallows
- 1 bag freeze dried strawberries, roughly crushed
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
- Line two baking sheets with silicone mats.
- Pour popped corn into an extra large heat-proof bowl, or two large bowls.
- In a medium saucepan combine corn syrup, sugar, strawberry jello and
butter until it comes to a rolling boil. Remove from heat and pour over
popped corn. Stir popcorn until most is evenly covered with jello
- Transfer popcorn evenly onto baking sheets.
- In a medium saucepan melt marshmallows and butter and drizzle over popcorn.
- Bake popcorn for 10 minutes rotating sheets half-way through. Remove
popcorn from oven and immediately sprinkle crushed freeze dried
strawberries over popcorn, stir to incorporate. Allow to cool break up
into pieces and serve.
It seemed like a lot of big steps but Husband and I worked on this one together and since things were on the stove and we were working with hot stuff we made it when the girls were in bed.
Here it is with melted marshmallow goo just poured onto it and ready to cool before touching!
This was the finished product all broken up and put into a bowl and full of all its tastiness.
Of course it was extremely sticky but the kids and adults alike enjoyed it! Having the recipe reader on the kitchen counter made following the recipe easy. I also like that each recipe has nice color photos so I can see if mine turned out like it is suppose to!
I like that you can make comments on different recipes so that if you have a tip or variation you can share them to help others with their own cooking. I can always use all the help I can get!
I also use the timers on the reader almost every day. I like that I can have several going at once!

stick to meals I know they are at least willing to try but honestly
