Cook'n Web App Questions & Answers

Last month, I announced the release of the new Cook'n Web App. Shortly thereafter, some Cook'n Members contacted us and said:

"I have a Cook'n membership but it won't let me sign in? It keeps telling me I need a membership."

We discovered the reason why this was happening. Apparently, some people have their browser settings configured to "block third-party cookies."

My amazing programmers got to work on this right away and removed all of the third-party cookies. Rumor has it that they ate all of the third-party cookies...with milk. There were a lot of them so it took a team effort, several days, and lots and lots of milk. But, they did it. So, now that problem is completely resolved.

We have received some very positive comments from those who have signed in. For example,

"The new update - using internet from is a very good thing!!! With that update in place, say I go to visit someone and forget my tablet or laptop, and we are talking about recipes, all I would need is their computer and remember my log-on. GREAT!!!! Keep up the great work." -Henry

"My dearest Dan!! YES!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I can log in on my Iphone now. Give the crew a pat on the back and have them give you one. And, I think it is time for oreos and milk!!!" -Colleen

"THAT is extra-special cool! Cook'n tech team, you rock! It's a great idea, very convenient." -Kathy

"Looks good. I think I'd rather use this than the iPad version, not that there's anything wrong with that version mind you. I just like the fact that this is already synced and if I can get to a browser I've got access to my library. Good job y'all" -Mark

Some people asked some good questions. For example,

QUESTION: "It sounds neat. But I'm not understanding this very well..." -Norma

ANSWER: "...The Cook'n Web App is just a different way to access your recipes. This is helpful for people who have a Chromebook, for example, which is a laptop that cannot run the Cook'n apps because it does not have a traditional operating system.

It is also helpful for those who do not have the Cook'n app installed yet. In general, I prefer to download, install, and use apps. But some people prefer to access their content from a web browser.

For example, each bank has a corresponding app but, to check their bank account balance, many people just go to their web browser and log in to their account. The Cook'n Web App makes this sort of thing possible.

If you happen to be on a computer that doesn't have the Cook'n app installed on it yet and you need to just look up a recipe real quick, you can just use the Cook'n Web App to log in and look up a recipe."

QUESTION: "Isn't this Web App really just a page on the web?" -Eric

ANSWER: "Great question Eric. According to Wikipedia, "In computing, a web application or web app is a client-server software application in which the client (or user interface) runs in a web browser.[1] Common web applications include webmail, online retail sales, online auctions, wikis, instant messaging services and many other functions." -

You picked a great time to have a Cook'n Membership because the new Cook'n Web App is available for Members Only. Now you can access your recipes from any web browser. Just go to and log in to your Cook'n Cloud account. If you are not a member, sign up today!
