I received your Cook’n Collection as a Christmas gift last year and absolutely LOVE the software. I have taken all my clippings and entered them into the program. What a great way to clean up some of my clutter.
I’m sure that you have thought of this but in case you didn’t, I think that it would be helpful for the busy cook to have an idea of the prep time required for each recipe. You could make it a component like the serving size where you can pick the time from a pull down menu.
Just a thought!
In most cases, the recipes included in Cook'n come from other publishers like Pillsbury and Taste of Home. Some of those recipes have prep time information but most do not. This is a great idea though and we need to find a way to do it!
Until then, here's a little tip that you may find useful when entering your own recipes. When you enter the recipe, type "Prep Time: 30 minutes" or Prep Time: 1 hour" in the recipe Description field. Then, when you're looking for a quick recipe, you can search your recipe database for the words "Prep Time: 15 minutes" and the software will list the recipes that match.
It's not ideal, but it may help for the time being! Have a great day!
