Organize and share your recipes

Avid cooks will know that as you pick up recipes, tips, cookbooks and ideas, your culinary collection can get a little out of hand. It's not a problem, however, if you have a decent recipe management program to keep it all under control and ready for use when you need to cook up something really special.

BigOven is a recipe management program from the community. You'll need to register (free) on the website to get full use of the trial version, as the program features a browser specifically to check out recipes from the site and add them to your collection. Apart from that, you'll be able to use the program's meal planning, shopping and nutrition functions to make sure that every dish you prepare is perfect.

The trial version of BigOven doesn't actually allow you to input your own recipes, but it does come already programmed with lots of recipes from the website, and of course, you can import recipes you find when browsing You can edit these, changing the servings and ingredients, adding notes, viewing nutritional facts, adding tags for easy searching and even adding the dish - and its ingredients - to the BigOven meal planner and shopping list.

BigOven also has a good selection of configuration options that will allow you to play around with the way the program is displayed and other settings. It also allows you to display recipes in metric, but unfortunately European users will be disappointed to find that they are displayed in milliliters, which is practically useless. Current users of are sure to love this app. It is very complete in the range of actions it can perform, but unless you are a big fan of the website, you might feel restricted, as you can't import from other websites or create your own recipes.
