Recipe Box for Mac

By Sonora Graphics Free to try

Developer's Description

Easy to use and practical, The Recipe Box is an electronic recipe book for chefs of all skill levels. Store all your favorite recipes, then display or print them scaled for any number of servings! The Recipe Box tracks all of your ingredients, units of measure, and preparation methods to minimize typing and maximize consistency.

Send recipes to your friends, even if they don't have The Recipe Box (but they should!). Create menus for this week's dinners or next weekend's camping trip. Print a shopping list for selected recipes or export the shopping list to your iPod or PDA.

Have a laptop? Bring the computer in the kitchen and use the full screen view to see the recipe from across the room without getting your computer messy.
