Got this as a present. You can only import from cook.com - not even from the food network - go figure. The recipe entry is slow and difficult. Searching the database is slow and clunky, I don't see using this at all.

This program is hard to use. Save your money. I have used MasterCook which is a great program. I read some reviews that said it wasn't very good but thought I would try it. As I said I give it an F.

I purchased this product and I am in the middle of a refund battle. Aside from the poor functionality, the dealbreaker for me is that the Food Network logo and an advertisement line print on every recipe including any personal recipes entered by you. This is intrusive and abusive if you want to create a cookbook of favorite family recipes.

The developer, Nova Developer, offers a refund, but their refund request page does not accept the UPC of the product I purchased at Costco. Go figure! I am now sparring on email with their customer support people.

I picked this program up one day at Best Buy, and I'm very glad that I did. It's super easy to use, and makes cooking fun! I pull up a recipe on my laptop and am able to use it in the kitchen, making dinner easy. Sure, you can only import recipes from food.com, but it's pretty easy to put your own recipes in as well. I love that it has a space where you can enter nutritional information of food. I also use it to make shopping lists every week, and you can delete items and sort the shopping list by recipe so if the store is out of a key ingredient, you can either find a substitute or skip the recipe entirely.

I didn't get this program expecting it to be super easy to import recipes from other places, because honestly, even though I get a lot of my recipes from the internet, I have many cookbooks that I plan to go through and type up the recipes from so that they are easy to find!

Food Network symbols are all over this box , but the only downloadable recipes are from food.com. While they may be good recipes they are ordinary people submissions. I much prefer the actual Food Network recipes. Any recipes but Food.Com must be typed in yourself using their confusing format. If Food Network recipes do not fit their download format the Food Network symbols should NOT be on the box , especially as nothing in this program has anything to do with Food Network - even the included recipes. Returned it the same day I bought it after a frustrating hour trying to get my favorite Food Network recipes into it. In very small print there is a statement that only fn.com recipes download , but that didn't mean much before I tried to use it.

This program and the technical support that goes with it is a joke, save your money. I recently updated my operating system and when I tried to open the software, was told I needed an upgrade. Unfortunately, the only way to upgrade it is to be in the software. I contacted technical support, but no luck, they sent me to a link that told me how to upgrade from within the software. It's like chasing your own tail. Looks like I have a new $40 coaster for my coffee table. Save yourself the money on this product!

I have used my existing copy of this software for a few years and the software suddenly started demanding a serial number that I don't have. As a result, I have lost several original recipes along with some old family recipes. This cost much more than the few dollars I paid for the software.

Too late I looked up Nova Development on the Better Business Bureau site -- they have an F. I guess that pretty much says it all.

My husband bought this for me and thought he was doing me a favor, but I wished he had saved his money (and the receipt)! It is extremely hard to use, and after I finally got the courage to try it again, it's now saying that I can't install it into my computer because I have outdated software and need to upgrade. What a joke! Amazon should be giving these away for free!!!

I bouhgt this and thought I would replace MasterCook.
No way that is going to happen. Very bad for importing recipes and I am very disappointed that you can't even import recipes fron the food network site itself.
You can only import from Food.com.
You would have to paste all new recipes to your new cookbook and retype a lot of information.
