Smart tools to organize your recipes, plan your meals and facilitate your grocery shopping. Recipes are easily added by typing them in, pasting them from the clipboard, or importing directly from the internet: no formatting is necessary. The wizard interprets the recipes, links them to the large database of grocery items and yields the nutritional analysis automatically. You organize your recipes in cookbooks that you can share with the free Shop'NCook Reader software. A powerful scaling tool lets you scale the ingredients and the text of your recipes, make automatic ingredient substitutions and unit conversions. The meal planner lets you manage a library of menus and organize your meals for each day of a calendar. The ingredients of the menus can be converted to your preferred shopping units and added to the grocery list for several weeks at a time with a click of the mouse. Contrary to most cooking software, grocery lists can also be created by directly selecting items of the database, adding from sublists or just typing in new items. Other features: recipes can link to other recipes; nutrition scripts to control the display of nutritional information and compute custom nutritional formulas; e-mail tool to send menus, recipes and shopping lists.
