What software do you use to keep your recipes?

I have a billion (or so at seems) of recipes that I am really tired of looking at. I would love to get them digital but I don't know what is the best program to use. I was hoping someone has one that they really love and would recommend.

  • I keep them all in a binder. When I get a new cookbook I'll try the stuff I want to, if we like it I copy the recipe and put it in the binder then I ditch the book... I don't have them digital.

  • I'm no help. I also use a 3 ring binder at home. I don't like cookbooks, I'd rather print only ones I like from the internet.

  • I have a binder too! I have the plastic sheets as inserts so I can use them while cooking and not have to worry about it getting ruined. I dont trust anything digital for my precious recipes! LOL

  • I use Mastercook. I love it. I can add a photo, it gives me nutrition analysis. It's great. I do keep a binder, I print up the recipes, but it makes it so nice for making copies for friends and getting the nutrition facts.
