Because my mom loved to cook, she attended culinary classes before. Back then, tablets and readers weren't available yet. She has this high pile of printed recipes on paper from her culinary classes. She also have recipes from my grandmothers and she wrote it in pieces of paper.
I sometimes ask her if I can borrow her recipes and she would tell me to find it in her "recipe collection". Sometimes, I would spend almost an hour trying to find the recipe I wanted! LOL. And sometimes, because her recipes are from way, way back, most of them are over 20 years old already!, the printed recipes would be torn on one side or the words have faded out a little bit already.
I tried copying her recipes and typing it on the PC but it took a lot of time to type all the ingredients and directions letter by letter.
I found the perfect solution to my mom's recipes! The Cook'n Recipe Organizer. I can just scan her printed recipes on the scanner and then I can just import it on the Cook'n Recipe Organizer. I don't have to type all the ingredients and directions manually anymore. With just 1 click after scanning, the recipes would be copied to the Cook'n Recipe Organizer and it automatically translates it to text.
I also found out that I can get recipes from Pinterest with just 1 click of a button! Yes it's that easy. I tried copying a whole Pinterest board with 95 recipes on it and some of the recipes were left blank. I only saw the name of the recipe but the ingredients and directions were left blank. So I have to advise that it's better to copy the recipe one by one on Pinterest instead of copying a whole Pinterest board.
I also love that if I wanted to add more servings to make, I just enter the number of people or servings I need and the Cook'n Recipe Organizer automatically computes the amount of each ingredient I need. Now, I don't need to do the math mentally if I wanted to double or triple my recipe.
It took me about 5 minutes to get used to these options of the Cook'n Recipe Organizer and I am still discovering new ways on how I can organize my recipes using this software.
