Organize Your Recipes

Home Cookin Index Screen
Home Cookin Recipe Software is fast, flexible, and easy to use.

Add your own recipes with no ingredient limitations or complicated forms to fill out. Include as many notes as you wish for sources or ratings. Attach a photo, check spelling, or resize the ingredients to better suit your family.

Use information records to save food glossaries, conversion charts, health recommendations, and other cooking tips.

The custom interface uses the same layout as a traditional cookbook, so you can find your favorite recipes quickly. Create as many chapters as you wish, and organize your recipes into the chapters you want them in.

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. Recipes can be printed directly from the meal calendar, or you can view individual recipes from your meal plan.

Prepare Your Grocery Lists

Make printable 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.
