Cooking with a cell phone

If you've been feeling jealous of all the cooking apps available to iPhone users, such as Dinner Spinner, Grocery iQ and Beer Brands, among others, fret no more. Your regular, ordinary cell phone can transform your grocery shopping, food prep and cooking too. Wednesday's New York Times dining section tells of the many ways cell phones are transforming the lives of professional chefs and home cooks. A Chicago college student talks about photographing a lasagna with her cell phone, then IM-ing her mom about the lasagna's topping. Chefs use their phones to e-mail others in their kitchens, instead of yelling, as in the days of yore. And no one needs to carry a list around the grocery store; a cell phone, especially if it comes from Apple, can organize your shopping list by aisle. If your phone can't do that, it can at least help you remember when to turn off the boiling eggs so your apartment won't smell like sulfur for the rest of the week.
