As a cook who can barely get it together in the kitchen these days, I can’t tell you how THANKFUL I am for technology. I don’t have room in my house for a collection of cookbooks like my mother and grandmother has. (Why is that anyway? So strange.) So, whenever I need a recipe I turn to the web for a quick search. I don’t even print anymore. Why bother! I just bring a tablet like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 with me and follow along with the recipe.
I had a handful of ingredients in the house and wanted to make shrimp pasta but was missing one prime ingredient… garlic! UGH! I didn’t want to NOT make the dish because I was dreaming of it all afternoon. I had to make due which meant I needed an alternate plan. I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and searched for an answer.
I’m a YouTube girl – so you know I watched a video recipe as well. LOL! I just needed to figure out how much garlic powder to put in order to replace to real deal.
In the end, subbing garlic powder for garlic wasn’t half bad. We devoured it all!
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 really helps me out inside the kitchen and out. But there’s more to it than just the Internet — it’s a Tablet PC. What’s a Tablet PC you ask? They are compact, ultra-portable entertainment devices that let you read email, surf the internet, read eBooks, view photos, play games, listen to music and watch video files. So, all of your entertainment needs are available in the palm of your hand!
