    "good idea but difficult to make work"

    December 13, 2008  |   By mmaryjoj


    Basic recipe software, free


    Freezes a lot, not very user friendly, lacked good instructions


    I did not like it and ended up erasing it and replacing Recipe Center with Discover-a-Dish because
    1) it comes preloaded with recipes which are very time consuming to take off. 2) I can't count how many times it froze while working with it. 3) It says that you can easily change ingredient amounts for different amount of eaters, but I couldn't figure it out nor find info on how to do so. 4) It doesn't come with good enough instructions. 5) For some reason, one of my recipes ingredients got copied into several recipes and erased the old ones which I find weird considering how hard it is to change recipes. 6) Very time consuming to modify or delete recipes - it will give you a silly amount of "Is this ok?" pop up windows and it will freeze in the process.
