Cook'n Review and Giveaway

I received Cook'n software for the purpose of this review.  My opinions are my own and are not influenced by any monetary compensation.

Cook'n is a great new software to help organize recipes.

There are so many great features about Cook'n, I almost didn't know where to start.  

This information is provided via the Cook'n website:

  • Enter Your Own Recipes
  • Capture Recipes from the internet (simply click Capture and import into Cook'n program)
  • Add brand-name cookbooks
  • Adjust serving sizes (something I definitely need!)
  • Email recipes quickly and easily
  • Add recipes to a blog!  A wonderful idea for the recipe  bloggers out there! 
  • Create meal plan menus.
  • Calculate recipe nutrition
  • Print and Publish cookbooks
and much more!  

When purchasing the software you also receive:
  • Free software updates to Cook'n
  • License to install on multiple computers at no extra charge
  • Access to hundreds of brand name eCookbooks in the Cook'n format
  • One free cookbook of your choice - $30 value!
  • Access to hundres of recipes directly from the Cook'n website
  • 350 of Cook'n best recipes with pictures that come preloaded with the program
  • Free month newsletters (only if you would like to receive them).
  • 5 star customer service
I received my software at the most opportune time.  My mother in law (who loves to cook) had just visited for Christmas and left several recipe cards with me.  I try to stay organized, but when I have several recipes saved in my email, several in paper form, several on cards, etc - It's hard to remember where I put each one.  I love being able to have all my recipes in one place, ready for me to use at the click of a button!  Cook'n really does help make life easier.  My six-month-old is now on the move, and  this software really lets me save some time (that is rare and much-needed).  

The ease of use is another thing I loved about Cook'n.  Some organizing websites can be daunting, and leave you not sure what you got yourself into.  Cook'n has simplified every task, with easy to use buttons, prompts, and more.  

I was able to input this recipe and export it via HTML directly to this blog :)

  2. WE are suppose to pick one thing we like?? JUST ONE?? WHAT ABOUT LOVING EVERYTHING!!!! Thank you so much for your wonderful giveaway!! Ok Ok so the easy quick emailing (I have many cooks in my family) and we love to share :) again thanks Nicole K.

  8. I like that it adjusts serving's hard cooking for 1!
