I love this software! Not only can I enter all of my recipes into one place but I can even grab them from other websites to save and try later!  I also love that I can sink it with my iPad which I am always using when trying new recipes. When searching my recipes I’m even able to create a grocery list to make sure that I have everything that I need. This is the only recipe app you need!  It’s very user friendly and I am in LOVE with the Pinterest feature!

Use Cook’n to Organize all your recipes.
My mom passed away a few years ago and I have so many of her wonderful recipes. Some of them are handwritten on recipe cards, others are in emails, and most are written on scrap pieces of paper. It’s really nice to be able to put them in one place.
Cook’n is the perfect solution to organize your personal recipes. When you have entered your personal recipes into Cook’n you can:
  • Create a family Cookbook
  • Share your recipes easily
  • Create menus and meal plans
  • Enhance the recipe by adding photos and stories
  • Get the nutritional facts for your recipes
  • and much more!
Enjoy the all new Visual Menu Planner. With the Visual Menu Planner you can create custom menus and meal plans.  Reasearch shows that those who use and effective menu planner are mor likely to:
  • Save time by making less trips and by staying organized on what’s for dinner
  • Save money by eating-out less beacuse they are prepared to make delicious home-cooked meals.
