For all you mac users out there…. I just discovered and am trial-running a program called MacGourmet. It can store your recipes in an easy-to-read format and you can use it to make meal plans, shopping lists, pretty menus and cookbooks. It’s pretty easy to figure out by reading applicable pages of the user manual and you can import recipes from your computer or from recipe sites. For you really tech-savvy ladies out there, you can sync it with ical.
You can buy MacGourmet online for $25. You can also try it for free for 20 uses before you buy to see if you like it. The meal plan plug-in costs $10, but looks to be one of the most helpful aspects of the whole. It has a 30 day free trial.
If anyone out there uses it, please comment and tell me what you think.
