5.0 out of 5 stars Love it so far...., March 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Living Cookbook 2011 (CD-ROM)
I have been looking to purchase this type of software for sometime. Since cooking is my profession, I automatically kept focusing on software developed for restaurants, caters etc. Some of that software may be outstanding but, I don't have and am not willing to spend the huge amounts of cash to purchase it. Since I was not willing to fork out the cash, I kept searching the internet for free services like nutritional analysis for example. By chance I decided to check out Amazon and came upon Living Cookbook. The software sounded great, there were very good reviews and the price was within my budget. Although I did not pay the full $35.00 out of pocket, I had a gift certificate, I am telling you it is worth the original price.

This software is incredibly easy to use, does everything I need it to and is a pleasure to work with. Although I have just begun using the software, the tutorials were incredibly helpful, very streamlined and to the point. I thought I would have to retype all the recipes I have on file, not so with the capture feature. Between the automatic nutritional analysis (which has extensive, surprising features), menu planning, inventory, itemized shopping lists by grocery isles I was and still am amazed by all the things this software can do. Bravo! At this point I can not think of a single issue I have with this product and can't tell you how happy I am to have it.

As my job is a seasonal one, we close from January to April, I only wish I had found it sooner so I could have been working with it the entire time I was laid off and while I had the time. The gentleman who put this together did a fantastic job. I was equally impressed that he answered and tried to help those individuals who had issues with the software as per their comments and his at Amazon.

Although I have only sampled one or two other soft-wares of this type which a couple of friends use, I can tell you for ease of use and available functions this software rocks. My search is happily over.

My only gripe and it is with most software and/or computer components, printed instruction manuals are no longer given with purchase. I know, most people will say, just look it up online or use help, it is a waste of paper. I like a physical manual I can look at and read when needed or before I begin to better familiarize myself with the software...oh well.
