Vote: Cook Smarts

Why: This meal planning web app completely changed my approach toward making dinner. Every week, Cook Smarts e-mails me a new menu with four simple dinners that I can follow on my computer, tablet, or phone. I get to choose from the original recipe or vegetarian, paleo, and gluten-free versions, and the site generates a grocery list. The thing I like most is that I'm really learning how to cook, because I can click on short videos embedded in the recipes if I don't know a certain cooking technique. For $6/month (yearly subscription), I no longer deal with the dread of figuring out what to cook, what to get at the market, or how to properly chop butternut squash, and still end up with great meals that I never would've imagined I could (or would want to) make myself!
