It is simply for organization -- instead of trying to figure out what site a recipe is on (which I do often) it is all put into one central place. Here is the description of the software:
* Manage your recipe collection: Living Cookbook makes it easy to enter new recipes, copy them from the Internet, or even scan them from cookbooks and magazines. Want to share your recipes with others? You can export or e-mail your recipes in a variety of formats, including FDXZ, FDX, HTML, Meal-Master, MasterCook and more.
* Plan meals: Just drag and drop recipes, ingredients and menus onto your meal plan. Plan a single meal, a day, a week, a month or more. Ready to shop for your meals? Just add your meal plan (or any part of it) to a grocery list.
* Calculate nutrition for any recipe, menu or meal: Living Cookbook's nutrition display is completely customizable. Want to see nutrition facts just like you are used to seeing them on product packaging? We can do that. Want to see more than 150 different nutrients, including Weight Watchers Points, trans fat, net carbs, vitamins, minerals, lycopene, beta carotene, caffeine and more? We can do that, too.
* Create grocery lists: Living Cookbook makes it easy to create a shopping list from scratch or from recipes, ingredients, menus and meal plans. The software will combine like items, organize them by your store's grocery aisles, and calculate the cost of each item and the cost of the entire grocery list.
* Publish and print cookbooks: Want to create your own cookbook as a Christmas gift, for retail sale, or for a church or school fundraiser? Living Cookbook can help you do it. You can print a cookbook with a cover page, table of contents, recipes and index directly from the software with just three clicks. Or you can export your cookbook to Microsoft Word and customize it to your heart's content.
It is for us type a's who need the organization and a place for everything and don't want to have to spend time looking for it, lol!!! Make sense?
