Although it lacks some features found in other recipe database programs, Home Cookin’ does a passable job of organizing recipes and assisting with meal planning.

Using its simple tabbed interface, you can either type in recipes or quickly add them by copying and pasting. We’re also able to upload and paste in BMP images during tests. Resizing the number of servings was simple, and the program automatically adjusts the measurements in the recipe. Its handy reference materials include measurement equivalents and an illustration of the USDA Food Pyramid. We also like the meal-planning calendar.

Unfortunately, importing and exporting recipes was a bust. The program’s “Copy to Clipboard” option gave a jumbled mess when exporting, removing images along the way. Importing was no better. The imported recipe was a mix of odd, erroneous characters. Home Cookin’ doesn’t give nutritional information for dishes, and the application’s grocery lists aren’t directly tied to selected recipes, unlike other programs in this category. We also were disappointed to only find 15 preloaded recipes to go along with the 15-day trial. Beginning cooking enthusiasts may want to try Home Cookin’, but veterans may feel as if they’ve been burned.

Plan Your Meals

meal planning calendar

Add your favorite recipes to the meal calendar when you want to prepare them. Calendar notes let you plan for dinners out or other special occasions. You can even reference recipes in other cookbooks. Meals may be planned days, weeks, or even years in advance. You can even look back to see what you made for holiday dinners in past years.

Meals can be assigned to regular times, like lunch or dinner, or for any hour of the day. You can add as many recipes or notes as you wish to a single day. Move meals to new dates if you need to change your plans, or copy meals if you expect to have leftovers.

 

Prepare Your Grocery Lists

Start a new grocery list, select the items you need, and print. A cost estimate is calculated as you select each item, so you’ll know ahead of time how much you’ll be spending on your groceries. The printed list is compact and sorted by store and location to make your shopping trip quick and easy.

It is easy to select the ingredients you need from your recipes. You can also select common extras like cereal, toothpaste, or paper products. Items you buy frequently can be added automatically when you start a new list. You can assign items to generic locations like produce or dairy, or exact aisle numbers. Locate items quickly using the Find feature.

 

Quickly Import Recipes From Web Sites

Easy one click importing from many popular cooking sites including All Recipes, Betty Crocker, Epicurious, Fine Cooking, Martha Stewart, Pillsbury, and more. Copy the web link and our recipe software will extract the text and photo from the web page automatically. You can use any web browser you wish, or copy links from email or other applications.

 

Follow Your Favorite Cooking Blogs

Use the built-in RSS blog reader to follow all of your favorite recipe blogs and cooking sites. When you find a recipe you would like to try you can import it directly to your recipe collection in Home Cookin Recipe Software. Instead of visiting all of your favorite cooking blogs to find recipes, the recipes will come to you!

 

Create Your Own eBooks

Export your favorite recipes to the ePub format for viewing on your tablet or smart phone. ePub is the most popular electronic book format and readers are available for nearly all tablets and smart phones. You can then view your recipes in the kitchen or while traveling, even when you don’t have internet access.

If you have an older device that does not support ePub, you can also use the built-in FTP client to export PDF or MOBI format electronic documents. You can export these directly to your iPad, Kindle Fire, or the Kindle eReader.

 

Create custom cookbooks

When you need to make a better impression, create personalized cookbooks in a variety of sizes. The printer ready PDF file includes a title page and a full index. Send the PDF to a printer to create professional paperback or hardcover cookbooks. These make great gifts, or as fund raisers for school or church events.

 

The Home Cookin Cloud

Upload your recipes to the cloud and view them online with your tablet, smart phone, or other mobile devices. The cloud viewer works with any web browser, so you can access your recipes anywhere you have an internet connection.

You can also use the cloud to easily transfer your entire recipe collection to a new computer.

The Home Cookin cloud is included with your purchase and there are no additional subscription fees.

 

Copy Recipes From Word, Email, or Blogs

Many recipes are found in unformatted sources like Word documents, emails, or blogs. The manual import feature lets you save these without a lot of copying and pasting. Import the recipe, mark the individual segments, and save it to your collection.

 

Print cookbooks, index cards, and more

Print your recipes to a variety of index cards or full page sheets. Home Cookin Recipe Software supports single index cards and common Avery forms.
