Recipe cards tucked into boxes, links bookmarked on computers, recipes shared via email—now, home cooks can save and organize all their recipes with Cook’n software. The program comes preloaded with 500 recipes to start out. From there, you can enter your own heirloom recipes and Internet finds, compiling them in the same spot and keeping them safe from spaghetti-sauce explosions. The software can organize the recipes into digital cookbooks with their own chapters, or print recipe cards and custom cookbooks with personalized colours and styles.
After you’ve rounded out your gastronomy anthology, you can search based on the ingredients you have on hand, or create meal plans with shopping lists that are automatically organized by aisle. To help home cooks tailor their meals to their family’s dietary needs, the program’s nutrition database enables it to estimate nutrition information, even for user-inputted recipes.
