When I was told that I would be reviewing Cook'n Recipe Software, I was not expecting to have so much fun with this program! In fact, when I first attempted to download it, my computer freaked out but once I got my end in order and got to give the program a real go - it was addictive and fun!
The program layout is much like a browser though it was a little awkward at first to use. However, the more I explored the more it made sense and before I knew it I was searching the internet and capturing recipes to add to my organizer.
Capture recipes from websites is one of my favorite features because it does just that, captures the recipe, from the search you do from the program no less and then adds it to your organizer making it easier to read and find again. It fills in the form for you so all you have to do is review (to make everything is right and in its place) and then add it to your cookbook. So very, very easy!
We are not the plan ahead of kind of family, I try but alas, it does not always work out. The drag & drop custom menu has won me over! Cook'n Recipe Organizer makes planning out menus a breeze!
Doesn't that Caramel Apple Cheesecake Pie look amazing! That came in the cookbook with my organizer! I will say that the recipes already included are basic, but fundamental. If there is a recipe that I sort of like but add to it or change I can edit the recipe and make adjustments. I can also add my own recipes and using the quick fill method, once I start typing an ingredient, the program is already looking for it. I can create a family book, complete with pictures and stories so easily.
The program will also help me with shopping lists (by aisle!) and calculate nutritional value.
I really am impressed with this program and I downloaded it not only to the family computer but to my little laptop so I won't have to keep going back and forth from kitchen to computer. The best part with that was there was no extra cost for it! There is also an iPhone, iPad and android app.
In a nutshell, the program is great, easy to use and was fun. You can buy it here or come back and enter to win it starting June, 18, 2012 in the:
