My mom, who lives in a small town, spends much of her time cooking and making homemade dishes, and she loves the app.
But she also likes cooking at home with a full-time cook and even has a special cooking utensil she loves.
“I’ve never tried to use the app, because it’s not like I’m a cook,” she says.
“But it’s a fun app and a fun thing to do.”
When I ask her about the app’s new tag line: “Eat near me,” she smiles and says, “It’s really good.”
And she says she would recommend it to other moms who love cooking.
“It really does help,” she adds.
“You can really taste the food and you get a sense of it.”
She adds, “And you can also use the feature of cooking on the go to get that extra crunch.”
Urban Eaters was born out of the desire to bring cooking to a whole new generation of people, so the company had to come up with something new.
“We were all tired of cooking,” Urban Eates co-founder Chris Oster says.
So, he created Urban EATS, a tool that lets users make and share recipes and video clips that help them share the recipes with their friends.
“The idea was, we can help people make and create food at home and share it with their families,” he says.
In addition to the app and the video, the company also has a variety of social media platforms for moms to connect with their cooking peers.
The company has a Facebook page, and Instagram account, which has over 1 million followers.
“For moms, there’s really no app like this,” Oster explains.
“That’s really exciting.”
One of the biggest challenges Urban EATES faced when it launched was finding the right recipe to promote, he says, adding, “People wanted to make the app for the kids, and moms loved the app.”
But there were some restrictions.
Urban Eatoes app has a few restrictions.
It requires users to have a photo ID, and it’s restricted to a limited set of food and cooking apps.
“A lot of the time, it’s moms that are going to share recipes with,” Osters says.
For the kids to get the app at all, Urban EAT has to be in a school zone or close to the school.
And there are certain restrictions on who can be a “cook,” so parents can’t put their kids in front of the app while they’re at work.
But the company says there are other perks to the idea.
“When we’re at the grocery store or grocery shop, people love it.
When we’re cooking, people want to make it,” Osts says.
The app also has an option for parents to take their kids to their favorite food court.
“If you’re like, ‘Hey, Mom, would you like to take my kid to your favorite food-court and cook for them?’ it’s so much fun,” Ost says.
I asked Oster if the app would be able to help with this.
“No, it would not,” he said.
“Cooking in public is still a big deal.”
But he says he’s excited about the possibility of cooking at the office or in public spaces.
“There’s a certain point where you want to get your kids in the kitchen and make them something,” he explains.
Urban Eater has been a favorite of my mom for years, and I think we’re all about sharing the good stuff.
I think it’s great.
But we want to do something for kids too.
That’s really our main goal with the app right now.
So we want that to be a part of the DNA of the product.
UrbanEats is now available on the iOS App Store.
