    Kitchen Calculator was a huge help when baking… great pick Jackie! I used it for a lot of these older recipes I had where I had to convert different measurements. Another app I found useful for baking is KitchenPad Timer. Simple kitchen timer but it has a nice timer display where you can see all your timers at once. I take my iPad with me into the living room and I can see everything going on and I’m notified when something is ready. Great for time sensitive baking.
