Cookbook Software

I'm thinking about putting together a book of recipes I love the most. Just a copy for me and my mother but I want it to look really nice. Does anyone know of any software that would help with that? Other then Word.

I use Diet Pro and love it. It does a great job with recipes, nutritional information, etc and also tracks exercise, nutrition intake, etc. It will also let you copy and paste recipes from the internet into its system.

The same company has Living Cookbook which was the best recipe software that I found when I looked a couple years ago. It also will publish your recipes as a cookbook in Word.

Both have free trials that you can download.

I think you can only run the program on one computer at a time unless you buy a second license.
Yes you can add pictures.
Yes you can email recipes right from the software.
Yes you can print
And you can import MasterCook recipes into the software.

I also use BigOven which I got for free by being a member of SendMeRecipes: www. sendmerecipes.com/1ndex.html

Any other questions ?

I use Living Cookbook also. I have used this program for about 5 years now. It is the best program out there. I tried them all before purchasing LC.
