Cook'n Recipe Organizer

Do you love finding new recipes online?  I do too!  How do you keep track of them though?  Sometimes I print them but then they get lost.  Other times I save them to my favorites but then it's difficult to find a specific one because there are so many and they're in no order at all.  Some websites let you sign in and save favorite recipes but then you have to find the correct website again.
I have had the pleasure of using Cook'n Recipe Organizer for the last couple of weeks and it provides a solution to the problem of organizing recipes, as well as the ability to enter and save your own recipes, and purchase cookbooks online.  I'm very pleased with Cook'n recipe software.

The Pros:
There is an easy to follow video that explains how to use the program.  This made it simple to use and more helpful.  Honestly there have been times that I downloaded programs and since I couldn't figure out how to make them work for me, I just didn't use them.  That is not a problem here.

You can create multiple cookbooks with custom chapters.  Want one for family recipes and another for diet recipes? No problem!  I just started a low-carb diet and for the first time I'm able to organize and hang onto all the recipes that I've found online.

Cook'n will capture recipes from websites, format them, keep a picture, tell you which website it came from and much more.  Very cool!

There are many more cool features but those are the ones that stood out to me.

The Cons:
The capture doesn't always work perfectly.  For example one recipe I captured listed each ingredient twice. Fortunately it was simple to remove the duplicates so not a major issue.

The program calculates nutrition info (a nice feature) but it looked to me like it was giving the per recipe info rather then the per portion info.  This made no difference to my enjoyment of it though.

The company is offering a giveaway on their website here!  Check it out for a chance to win a copy.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. Sounds interesting. I have been using Pinterest to keep track of recipes I want to try. Now what I really need is the time and energy to gather all the ingredients and make some of them!
