What's for dinner tonight? With Recipe Box you'll be able to store all your different recipes in one place on your computer.

Create recipes from scratch, adding ingredients, time required and instructions. You can also include a picture of the dish. Recipe Box can organize your recipes by course, and you can also create your own if you wish. The program can also generate your shopping list and everything you note down in Recipe Box can be printed out. You can also check what you write down with the ingredients, preparation and measurement dictionaries.

The streamlined Recipe Box interface gives you a clear view of all of your recipes, and browsing them by course is very easy. The only downside of the application would be the way you edit shopping lists. Although it's easy to add ingredients and amounts, it's not very simple to edit a shopping list after you've closed it or to erase one. Clicking "create shopping list" simply brings you back to your old list.

Behind an unassuming interface, Recipe Box makes for a handy way to keep track of all your recipe ideas.

Changes

  • Notes can be assigned to ingredients from any Recipe window
  • Ingredient quantities in each recipe remember their format (fraction or decimal)
  • Automatically changes space characters in fraction entries to dashes
  • Corrected a problem with scaling decimal quantities

Easy to use and practical, The Recipe Box is an electronic recipe book for chefs of all skill levels. Store all your favorite recipes, then display or print them scaled for any number of servings! The Recipe Box tracks all of your ingredients, units of measure, and preparation methods to minimize typing and maximize consistency.

Send recipes to your friends, even if they don't have The Recipe Box (but they should!). Create menus for this week's dinners or next weekend's camping trip. Print a shopping list for selected recipes or export the shopping list to your iPod or PDA.

Have a laptop? Bring the computer in the kitchen and use the full screen view to see the recipe from across the room without getting your computer messy.
