Editors' Review

Even kitchen novices will feel like master chefs after using the encyclopedic Living Cookbook. A battery of recipes is here, of course, offering detailed ingredients, instructions, and even images. An integrated calendar is helpful for menu planning, too. But most notable is the comprehensive glossary offering up insight into arcane cooking terms and data. You even can edit entries if your kitchen tests reveal necessary tweaks or tips. Printing and sharing tools also are handy. Anyone looking to sharpen their culinary chops will find Living Cookbook an excellent resource.

unable to import txt files of recipes from old cookbook program.


Not sure I'll continue to use it after the trial period. Not sure it is what I'm looking for.

"Good app, but only one PC"

This is definitely a good app for recipes. It's easy to copy things in from the web. It will automatically figure calories and nutritional content. It has a huge database of ingredients. I've used it for several years now.


However, I'm looking for a new recipe app. The reason is simple: this app cannot be installed on more than one computer. Most apps can be installed on several PCs at a time without extra charge. This one creates a key when you install it, and you can only do that once. To move it to a different PC, you have to ask for Radium's permission. I don't want to sell it or give it to friends. I just want to be able to browse the web on any of our PCs and put recopies in as I find them. Can't do that here without buying a full-price copy for each machine. With this app, I have to keep track of the place I found the recipe from one machine to another, then remember to put it in when I get back to where the app is installed. I'm sure this is a petty complaint to many. To me it is an unnecessary inconvenience.


If you only own 1 PC, this is a great app. If you ever browse recipes from your alternate PCs, it's annoying as all get out.
