I am a firm believer in the importance of family meals and home cooking. I do not like eating fast food or convenient food at every meal. Nothing shows love more then slaving over a stove to prepare a meal your family absolutely loves. Every good cook knows you have to start with a recipe. Once you have mastered that recipe, you can then start making it your own by changing things up to your preferences. I have recipes all over the place from cards, to cook books, and even on sticky notes on my computer. They give me an idea of what I want to make when it comes time to plan a meal.
I am so excited to finally be able to have one place to add them all! Not only can I have all of my recipes, but I can easily update them as I find new ways to make them better without scratching out or rewriting entire recipes! With Cook’n software, I know have the smartest cook book ever! It comes equipped with 500 recipes already stored in the system for you to check out. You can create a personal cook book and add “chapters” as you go. I have added chapters so far for dessert items, main dishes, and side dishes. The options are endless! You can add the ingredients, amounts, even specify if there is a certain name brand that you use. You can then put in the directions for cooking and the servings it will make. Once complete, they are stored in your cook book and all you have to do is click a button to bring it up!
Another great feature is the search feature. If you have something in mind you would like to try, but do not have a recipe you can search for one. It connects to the internet and brings up just as any search engine would. But the
awesome part is once you find one you like, you can “capture” the recipe and Cook’n will pull the recipe and even images from the site and add it to your cook book! no more copy and paste, no more writing things down. One click of a button and it is saved for you and even captures the site information it came from so that you know where you found it.
There are so many great features that I could go on and on but I don’t want to make this to long! Just note that outside of recipes, you can find nutrition information, make daily and weekly meal plans, make a grocery list based on a meal plan, and even input ingredients you have at home to come up with a recipe with what you already own! I highly recommend this program to any cooking enthusiast! You will be more than happy to have it.
