From Rufenacht Innovative:
The smart solution for your meal planning and grocery shopping. ShopNCook Menu understands recipes: just type or paste your recipes and the wizard interprets them, links the ingredients to the database of grocery items and to other recipes, and yields an accurate nutritional analysis automatically. Drag your recipes to days of a calendar and organize them in menus to plan your meals. Change conveniently the number of servings for whole meals at a time. Make weekly or monthly grocery lists with a click of the mouse. The ingredients are converted to your preferred shopping units and sorted according to the aisles of your supermarket. Contrary to most cooking software, grocery lists can also be created by directly selecting items of the database, adding from premade lists or typing in new items. Includes a customizable database of 2000 grocery items with nutritional data.
What's new in this version:
This version is the first release on CNET Download.com.
I have researched and downloaded many recipe programs but they were missing some part I needed or were just not comfortable to use. I finally ran across Shop'NCook Menu and it is GREAT! You can just record recipes and create shopping lists OR you can have it handle it all!!! AND it is fun to use. You can create cookbooks, add photos if you want, you can copy recipes from places like the Food Network and paste into the program and it puts everything in place for you like magic. YOU CAN ALSO IMPORT recipes you have from Meal-Master, MasterCook and other popular formats It automatically calculates nutritional information for each recipe you enter. You can search, create/print recipes, create menus (there is a calendar built in to help you) and aisle-by-aisle shopping lists. It has the ability to scale down your recipes. You can even download over 1,000 recipes into the program from their website. Best part is that it only cost $49.95. It is a bargain. Also, did I mention that you can export shopping lists to SplashShopper format for use in your PDA so you can take your lists to the store as printed sheets or in your Palm.
They offer 3 versions -- Shop'NCook HOME, Shop'NCook MENU and Shop'NCook PRO which is for foodservice operations and has extra functions for calculating the cost of food preparation.
There are so many other very cool features that I recommend that you go to their website and check it out. Their website is shopncook.com You can download a FREE program to TRY IT. That is what I did and I bought it right away. After trying so many other programs, I knew right away that this was the one at the right price!
YES, I am in love with this program! You should download it and try it!
