This database-oriented application allows cooks to store, manage, print, and e-mail recipes, but the inability to import them won't suit some palates. Cooking Aficionado's straightforward interface lets you easily view and manage recipes. Unlike similar applications in the market, this freeware only provides one preloaded sample, and its inability to import recipe files from different formats is a big turnoff for some users. Additionally, you'll only be able to export the recipe files in one format: CA XML. Cooking Aficionado can be registered for free, though a "How to buy" statement in the help file might confuse some users. Sharing options like the ability to print and e-mail recipes is well appreciated. In testing, e-mailed recipes were quickly and accurately sent. This freeware application can be displayed both in English and Spanish. Cooking enthusiasts looking for an organizational utility can try Cooking Aficionado, but we'd guess they'd also want to sample more flexible applications.
