Create a digital library for your recipes

CookDiary is a tool that lets users compile a comprehensive digital recipe book on their Windows PC.

Add another solid recipe catalog tool to the growing list of great options. Much like RecipeMaster and Living Cookbook, CookDiary is an easy-to-use program that in some ways is even more than just a library.

First, you'll want to add your favorite recipes into the program. CookDiary's interface is set up so you can create different categories of recipes, such as desserts, Italian food and breakfast items. These categories will appear in a narrow pane on the left side your screen. Once you've created the categories, then you can begin adding recipes to each one. CookDiary allows you to add a picture, a rating between one and three stars and even an icon to indicate if the recipe is spicy. Then, add the ingredients, serving size and cooking instructions and you're good to go.

It's the little features in CookDiary that make it really stand out. If, for example, you need to change the number of servings you need to make, you can do this easily and CookDiary will adjust the ingredients as necessary to meet your new serving size needs. In addition, there's a cooking instructions view that shows every instruction in large print for easy reading while you're in the kitchen. There's even a calendar and a feature that lets you create shopping lists.

If you want to store your cooking recipes on your PC for ready access, CookDiary makes it easy and enjoyable to do so.
