I want to note that I did not purchase any of the books, because based on other reviews, this software comes with all the recipes in all of the books. I go to Dream Dinners approx 6-8 times per year. I purchased this software because I do enjoy assembling meals. I wanted "something" to help me save on costs. What I really like about this software is that you can enable your own edits. For example most recipes have "normal" or what I call "full fat" ingredients. Being nutritionally conscious, I often will substitute a lower fat or lower calorie version of an item. This software allows you to do that. Also, being single, when I'm at Dream Dinners, I make quantities of 3 rather than 6. This way I have more of a variety. This software allows you to alter the serving size. The standard serving size for most recipes is 6 or 8. When I pull up a recipe, I automatically change the serving size to 3 or 4 servings. The software automatically adjusts the quantities in your recipe.

I've also created/added some of my own favorites. I make spring rolls (cellophane wrapped ones) with a peanut sauce. I easily entered the ingredients for both of these recipes.

Why I didn't give it 5 stars: I wish that the program would provide nutrition information. That's the only flaw I see. Since the software knows the exact quantities of each ingredient, it would be great to have a nutrition summary. But there are many free sites out there that you can plug the info into and get the nutrition info if you desire.

I just got this product from Amazon and I am quite impressed. The software appears to be very well written. Quick and with no crashes. There is an extremely large database of recipes (dinner, lunch, and sides) included in just the software with the option to buy more at a discount.

The install was quick and easy and the process of choosing your meal, putting together a menu, printing a shopping list, printing the recipies, and even printing lablels with instructions on how to heat up the food from the freezer is virtual automatic.

I looked through a few other cookbooks on OAMC, but they all seemed to have a a fault in that you had to pull out your calculator to determine how much of this you need to cook it 3x as much, now take that info and put it in a shopping list, oh wait how are you going to store this food, Tupperware, Ziploc.......

This software package even tells you what you need to have on hand for containers!!!

I have yet to try out and taste the recipes, but they sound delicious and easy and worst case scenario, they even let you put in recipes from other OAMC cookbooks. I see a lot of easier

Money well spent.

Thanks,

W

Wow! Okay, so I work late most nights -- I got home and was thrilled to see this had arrived!! It took less than 15 minutes to plan a menu for an entire week, print out the recipes, the shopping list and the menu. The recipes are not too fussy or fancy, and contain many of the ingredients you probably already have on hand. No matter what your tastes, your budget, or your schedule this will work for you. We're a busy family of six; so I'm no stranger to OAM cooking methods, but this program takes all the guess work and calculating out of every recipe. It's very flexible and allows you to customize just about every aspect of your recipes, menus and shopping lists. The directions for the labels are so simple, my teenagers can even start dinner when they get in from school. Very cool, very impressive!

I read the reviews for this software on amazon and elsewhere before I purchased this software. However, no one mentioned that this software is not compatible with a 64-bit operationg system. I can't use this at all!! Amazon doesn't state this. The packaging doesn't state this. The website for the software doesn't state this. I emailed the makers of this software to ask if there was anything that I could do, and after more than a week no one has bothered to email me back (and their site states that someone will get back to you in "24 to 48 hours"). I hope nobody needs tech support cause you're not going to get any help. I am going to try to return this since I can't use it.

I was a big fan of several meal assembly stores. As a working professional I would come home after a 13 hour day and still be required to cook dinner. It made it easy to have something that was ready for my family to pop into the oven while I was on the way home, or complete a quick meal that was already put together when I arrived.

Well, with the current economy all the stores in my area have either gone out of business, or no longer allow the customer to "make their own meals" (they want to do it for you). This program gives me the power back! I love the labels...(one of the reasons I liked going to the stores was the professional labels.) You can even save on labels by deciding which ones to print on...so if you didn't use the whole sheet today...you just tell the program which labels you already used so it will print on the available labels. LOVE IT!

This also prints out your recipes in a professional manner on little cards. Great when a friend asks for the recipe! It even gives the credit to the author even if it was from another book. It is super simple to add your own recipes from other sources.

The program is also visually pleasing and easy to use. (I tried another program from another Make ahead meal source...It looked like a spreadsheet. Yuck!)

All in all this program was WELL WORTH the money! This is the best $35 I have ever spent! I am excited to get back into my kitchen! My only problem is that my freezer is packed full...and I have to wait for my family to eat some more of the meals before I can get cooking again! (I also saved a lot of money shopping "loss leaders"...eggs were $1.49 for 18 the other day...so I made a ton of breakfast things that will be great to have on the weekends when my family is all home.)
