Using this free Recipe database manager
Once you have launched the program you would see a big window appear on the screen. It would have several recipe names (about 100 of them) on the right and a recipe on the right side of the window. The right side is further sub-divided into three parts i.e. Ingredients, Procedure, and Nutritional Values. In case you wish to scroll to another recipe from the list you just need to scroll on the left window and select the one you want. You may even use the search option at the top if you want to search for a particular recipe of your choice. The search comes with a detailed categorization where you can search your recipe as per the name, rating, keywords, ingredients, calories, etc.
Further if you wish to add a particular recipe you can click on the Add button on the extreme left at the top of the screen which will open up a new window asking you about the details of the new recipe. This screen asks you the details of the particular recipe you wish to add where in you need to insert the details in the 4 tabs appearing on the screen. The tabs further have several sections that need to be filled in order to compile and save the recipe. The tabs are:
The features under this tab include mentioning of the recipe name, its procedure, adding pictures of the food, adding nutritional values, etc. One may even import the details from an already saved recipe in the program. It would help you in editing or getting a brief idea of how you could modify a similar recipe and save it in the program. Another possibility is browsing recipes of your choice online and copying their contents and pasting them in the respective fields in the sections provided. After you are done you just need to click on OK and it would start appearing in the list.
Talking about the other features you can modify a recipe, print them, and add/delete ingredients to existing recipes from the options appearing at the top. One of the best features of the program is the option of Resizing the quantities. Once you click on the tab at the top with the option for resizing you would be presented with a new window where you need to insert the number of people you wish to prepare the dishes for. Once you do so all the dishes you browse would be modified in terms of ingredients and procedures with respect to the number of people you chose.
