So stop thinking about what to cook.
Every. Single. Night.
Unload the mental load, and stop asking yourself, "what's for dinner tonight?"
Thinking about what to make for dinner is an age-old problem that usually falls to one person in the household.
Let us plan your dinners for you, so you can get on with life.
Save money, time and reduce food waste
Did you know that after housing, food costs are the second biggest category of costs for Aussie households?
We get it. We’ve all gone to the shops to buy the ingredients for “one recipe” and found ourselves spending over $50.
The recipes in our meal plans cleverly work together, so you'll reduce food waste and save money at the supermarket without sacrificing quality.
Be inspired to cook delicious dinners
We all have good intentions, but so often life can get in the way. When it’s 6 pm and we can’t face another trip to the supermarket we find ourselves ordering takeaway. Again.
Not so with the Dinner App! Because you have all the ingredients ready to go, all you have to do is follow the step-by-step instructions and you’ll have dinner on the table before you know it.
Each step has a photo and the ingredients and quantities underneath, so you'll always be able to follow the recipe and know you're on track.
What our Customers say
Meal kits send you both the recipes AND the ingredients. We send you the recipes in a weekly dinner plan, and you also get a grocery list for the week. We think this is better for you because
1. You can choose your own produce
2. You can incorporate your food shop for these ingredients into your weekly grocery shopping, and don't have to worry about any of the packaging that goes with meal kits (ice packs and boxes).
3. The cost of The Dinner App subscription is a lot cheaper than meal kits - only $5.99 (AUD) a month.
On average, excluding pantry staples, the weekly grocery shop comes in between $80 and $120 for a family of four, most often sitting at $100 (AUD).
Yes, the Weekly Menu is created to use a variety of seasonal ingredients and cuisines. If you don't like one of the meals recommended in your weekly plan, there are hundreds of other recipes to choose from, that you can add to your menu (and your grocery list will update). You can filter recipes by cuisine, main ingredient, cooking time, dietary requirement and other factors like if it is a budget-friendly meal or freezer friendly.
Yes! If you want, you can turn on nutritional information to see the macros for each recipe. You can also see a more detailed breakdown on the recipe card on our website.
You are absolutely free to use either, or both. The benefits of using the Dinner App are that you can
1. Access the grocery list functionality within the app - so you can see exactly what you need for your meals.
2. See step-by-step photographic instructions without the distraction of advertising.
3. See ingredient quantities under each step.
I'm a recipe creator, and I'm lucky to work with my mum, Kay Francis who had a long career as a food writer at Gourmet Traveller, Women's Weekly Australia and has written three cook books of her own. Mum edits all the recipes and makes sure they all make sense!
Yes! The Dinner App is available as an Android App on Google Play, and as an iOS App on the Apple App store.
Every week we're adding new delicious recipes to make your weeknight dinners delicious.
Yes! We have kid-friendly options on every recipe, so you can simplify recipes down to suit your family's tastes.
You can also easily remove recipes from your weekly menu if they don't suit your family and swap them in with past favourites, or recipes that are "Designed for Kids", which shows our selection of recipes suited to people with simpler tastes.
