Cooking Software. Any Favourites Out There.

I have over the years saved recipes and would like to get a software program that will help me organize my collection. I have looked at several eg. Cook'n, Mastercook, Bigoven to name a few. If any of the readers out there have any special favourites, let me know. Also what is best about them.

I really like Living Cookbook. www.livingcookbook.com. You can make a grocery list based on the recipes you want to make, you can keep track of what's in your kitchen and it's easy to input recipes and navigate around. I like how it prints out on the page, too.

Thanks Kate for your input. I haven't looked at that one and will check it out. Hopefully I will get more suggestions.

Hi Dan. Very interesting. I was looking at that one too. I have a question. Can the recipes on the software be edited. For example I weigh my flour now instead of doing it in volume. 1 cup = 125gm.Also is it available to purchase in Canada (the CD). I know that Amazon.com carries it but Amazon.ca does not. Let me know.
