An App-Filled Cookbook To Stay Inspired in the Kitchen

App-Tastic Deviled Eggs with hot sauce is just one of the many delicious original Salesforce Trailblazer recipes in this cookbook.
The “Cooking with Appy” cookbook has been opened more than 50,000 times. Every original recipe was submitted by a Trailblazer.

Our Trailblazer-inspired cookbook is a hit, and contains original recipes along with the chefs’ favorite AppExchange apps.

If you’re over that plastic smell from the macaroni and cheese box and looking for some tasty inspiration, Cooking with Appy has made its way to hundreds of Trailblazers’ kitchens. Don’t believe me? It’s been opened over 50,000 times. Talk about filling those virtual shelves.

But there’s more. What’s so inspiring about this cookbook is that every original recipe was submitted by a Trailblazer who’s as passionate about food as they are about AppExchange apps. And a Trailblazer-inspired cookbook wouldn’t be complete if every recipe wasn’t accompanied by customers’ favorite apps.

Here’s a look at the recipes and apps from the cookbook. We hope this gives you some delicious inspiration.
