Review by Debbie Jean at http://www.debbie-jean.com
I was given a copy of the Cook’n Recipe Software to review and giveaway.
Being a family cook, I basically stick to my family’s favorites and on’t wander too far from those recipes, only trying something new once in a while and when our budget permits!
So I was happy to get the Cook’n software to try out ! Cook’n is basically a custom cookbook you can fill with all your finds and favorites.
The first thing I did of course was add my family’s favorites to it: Swedish meatballs, crock pot chili, oriental stir fry, our favorite homemade bread, and more of our staple meals. I loved this feature because you simply choose a category such as appetizers, main dishes, etc, enter your ingredients, quantities, and directions into their simple spreadsheet, and it automatically adds it to your ‘recipes’, making it look like a nice recipe card! And it makes your favorites easy to find by categorizing it in the left sidebar of the software, so there’s no spending time searching!
The next feature I tried was their ‘capture tool’, and this HAS to be my favorite thing ever!! This allows you to take any recipe you find online and capture the screen by using their online recipe search – pulling recipes for your search from all over the web! Once you click the capture button, Cook’n automatically sorts the recipe for you to add to your cookbook – making an ingredients list, directions, and quantities – no writing or messing around trying to find printed out recipes!
The next best thing would be the ‘menu’ option, allowing you to plan your week ahead with recipes from your book, automatically making you a simple shopping list, and allowing you to be prepared for dinner!
All in all, whether you are a home cook, or an all out professional chef, I’d highly recommend the Cook’n software for organization, budgeting, and having fun with your cooking!
