But for those times when I find a winner of a recipe, I of course want to keep it. Unfortunately this has led to a bit of a hoarder type situation when it comes to saving them all. I tried printing them off and storing in a binder, but half the time they didn't make it into the binder or got taken out to use and then just stacked up in a cupboard.
In addition to getting rid of those printed recipes I would like to scale back my cookbook collection, you know the ones I have but really only use for 1 or 2 favorite recipes.
Finally I have found a solution that will help me make sense of all this mess. I have been trying out Cook'n Recipe Organizer and so far I am impressed.
The other night when I went to make tuna patties for dinner I had to search online for recipe as it had been awhile since making them. By searching through the Cook'n program I was then able to save the recipe in the program with a simple click of my mouse. Using the capture feature, cook'n will take all the info from the website and put it into a recipe page which you can save in the cookbook and section of your choice. So the next time we want tuna patties (my kids love these !) I can quickly and easily find the recipe..
There are many other great features to this program my favorites are:
* being able to scale recipes easily adjust serving sizes
* create shopping lists from your recipes
*download new cookbooks from right in Cook'n.
*calculate nutrition values for recipes
*type ingredients you have on hand for recipes
The program was easy to set up, after a quick download I discovered that it came with one cookbook already in place with a bunch of recipes that look great to try. I can't wait to continue to merge all my favourite recipes into this program.
To find out more about Cook'n check out their website or head over and like their Facebook page! I have been checking it out and just had to mention that they have posted links at times to download additional cookbooks for free, have recipe exchanges and monthly giveaways!
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.
