Need recipe software help
 
Help! I've tried to use the search, but I keep getting every topic that has recipe in the title. I'm interested in purchasing recipe software and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions/comments on the software they use.
I want to be able to store my various recipes in one place, print, and easily adjust the recipe for different quantities. Thanks in advance!!

Thanks, Larry! I just downloaded it and am going to try it out.

Here's a review of the "Top Ten" recipe software:

This person rates several programs, then changes her mind:

Keep us posted on how NYC works for you. Having Larry's endorsement is huge in my book.

Thanks,

Papa

If you're running a windows based computer I can't help but for anyone on a Mac I found a great one yesterday. It's called SousChef it's share ware you can download for free and/or purchase for $30. The difference between the free and the pay to play is the number of recipes you can add (up to 50 for free). It is capable of speech recognition and also reads the recipe to you as you make it - a virtual assistant if you will.

Here's a screenshot of the interface... http://i459.photobucket.com/albums/q...e/SousChef.jpg

The feature I like the most about Now Your Cooking is that once you buy the software they never, ever charge you again for anything. You automatically get every update (major and minor) for free.

Larry, when upscaling a recipe, is there a way to convert the measurements? I just upscaled my sauce recipe and it's giving me 16 tablespoons instead of 1 cup.

I don't know. Let me play with it a little this afternoon while watching the Chargers destroy the Jets.

I'm a huge fan of BigOven, the one rated #1 in Papa Payne's top 10 list. I've used it for years and love it.
