Editors' review

This no-nonsense program's appearance may lack spice, but Now You're Cooking does a decent job of organizing recipes and assisting with meal planning. Its commonplace interface is home to several handy features to manage recipes, menus, and shopping lists. You can add, edit, and e-mail recipes; resize the number of servings; upload images; and import and export recipes in several formats. Nutrition information is included for a host of individual food items and for many recipes. You can add recipe ingredients to a shopping list, but you'll need to create a list first to use this feature. Oddly, while the Menu feature offers two components, Plan and Calendar, both open the same window. Beyond its recipes, the program's most notable feature is a comprehensive glossary of cooking terms. Plus, it has one of the most generous trial periods on the market. This application isn't as fun as its name suggests it might be, but intermediate users and above will appreciate all this meal-planning program offers.

    "Excellent!!!!!"

    Version: Now You're Cooking 5.66

    Pros

    Am able to download from many sites. I just love the recipe input screen. Able to make menus. Can add many new nutrients. Well worth the price. I never cared for master cook format. This is so much better. Also makes shopping lists from your menus. You can even put in your grocery store isle info to shop by aisle. It has greatly improved my weekly shopping. You can even put in your coupons. You are given 60 days of trial before need to register. Hint--organize as you go. Don't import too much. the organizing is the key.

    Cons

    Only problem I have found is sometimes I have to move recipes to notepad before you can move to screen input. It makes formatting much easier. You have to be willing to put in some time to set everything up but it's worth it.

    I have problems with entering items for nutrition. Can't download and enter pictures or notes with recipe. Have to go back to categorize after saving downloads. Very frustrating!
