What's not so great: Does not import recipes from AllRecipe website as claimed on the software box.
Ths software has misleading claims on the software box. The text on the software box says you can import recipes from other recipe websites, specifically AllRecipes, Recipe Zaar, AOL food, Food Network. The software, V 8.2 WILL NOT do this, contrary to the advertising claim on the box. My email exchange with the software company, DVO Enterprises of Alpine, UT failed to result in any technical support assistance/response to remedy this problem. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

What's great about it: It is a great receipe organizer
What's not so great: My problem with getting old info into this one.
I had Cookn with Pillsbury. I thought I could import that info into this product. So far I haven't been able to, but will keep trying.

What's great about it: nice box
What's not so great: price, features, bugs galore!
This is probably THE worst software, of any type, I've ever used. Do not be fooled by the exorbitant price. It's much worse than other recipe programs that are half the price.
Everything about this program is dated. The interface is old, clunky and confusing. The formats that are used are archaic. Useful features, such as importing from the web, are nowhere to be found.
From another review: "for a small fee they'll send you some recipes each month". Really? How about using google or bing or yahoo to find all the recipes you'd ever want for free? Oh yeah, you can't import them with this software. Doh! So, I paid twice as much for this program just so I can also pay a monthly fee for something that is free? Double doh!
The bottom line: do not waste your money on this hunk of junk.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

What's great about it: you can input all your recipes and downloads easy and it comes with a lot of reciipes
Be careful how you catorize your recipes or you can get lost. I put in over 1000 recipes already. It is easy to download recipes from the internet into the program. and there is a club you can join for a small fee that lets you get a free cookbook each momth. The Cookbooks will be organize by each cookbook and also by type of food and ingedients.
I would recommend this to a friend!
