Hi, Donya...glad you finally decided to post, so we can officially welcome you to CT.  I think most people here use Master Cook, although there are fans of others.  I made a family cookbook, but only used WordPerfect.  It turned out just fine.  I'm sure it's easier if you have recipe software, but at the time, I didn't.

Wish me luck!


Thanks again.

BTW, I keep preaching that this is something each of us should do.  I don't care if your family "couldn't cook" which mine certainly couldn't...there are always dishes that we loved growing up, things our children loved, and it would be such a shame to lose those.  I made one before my mother and aunt passed away, and I wouldn't take anything for it now.

I truly understand.  I grew up on a farm that had a very large garden and we canned, etc and one of the gifts that I recently received was a mixing bowl of my grandmothers with her recipes in it.  What a treat!  She cooked off of the wood burning stove in the winter and we had various fruit trees on our land so my experiences with food and cooking are amazing.  And some recipes from family members just brings them to mind, whether the recipe is gourmet or not.  I look forward to finishing the book.


Thanks for your input.

Not as well known but several people here have been impressed with Living Cookbook. You can download a limited use trial version.


Always take a good look at what you're about to eat. It's not so important to know what it is, but it's critical to know what it was.

Age is unimportant unless you’re a cheese.
