  1. Disappointed

    Posted by Bonnie on 16th Nov 2013

    I purchased this software to print out family recipes on beautiful recipe cards. I watched the video three times trying to see how to print out recipe cards.
    I also sent in two times, questions about the video and was answered promptly.
    I was assuming that I could print out recipe cards that matched the books that are for sale.
    The cookbook I selected is a gift, and I am just going to print out the recipes on plain paper and let the recipient copy all of the recipes on the cards in the book.
    This is not what I intended but it is what it is.

  2. Just what I wanted.

    Posted by Unknown on 16th Aug 2013

    This is the best valued cookbook software on the market. I am very pleased with my purchase. Easy to use and lots of options.

  3. Softwear

    Posted by Bev on 25th Jun 2013

    easy to use, but I do wish it had few more options. I want to give history to some of my recipes for the book I am passing to my grandchilren. Being some of them have been in family for years. Also want to end each page with an Inspirational message and cannot do that.
    Reply from The Cookbook People
    I usually put a little message, or something about the recipe or its owner, a few lines down from the recipe itself Bev, so that this comes immediately before the picture (if I use one).

  4. Great job to all of you!

    Posted by Judy on 25th Jun 2013

    Your cookbook software is so easy to use I had only a few problems which I can work around and started printing out my recipes as plan on making books for each of the kids so they can continue to pass to their children through the years and pray it keeps going for generations. I named mine Mom's Country Kitchen Cookbook and used your picture of "Footprints" and want to get the poem to add to it. A great job by all and your company is one of the best I have ever dealt with.
    God bless

  5. Enjoy the software but...

    Posted by Susan Cossu on 15th Jun 2013

    The software is good but far from perfect. Spell check is far from perfect if you have a word that you don't want to change and it does not let you skip and move forward to other words. To download is not simple. Page numbering cannot be done on single pages. On the other hand, I enjoy what it does let me do. I wish you would do an updated more user friendly version and not be so afraid of someone copying. Pam has been very helpful with some of my problems. Thank you, Pam!
    The Cookbook People reply: - I'm glad that we were able to sort out most of your problems Susan!

  6. Very happy!

    Posted by Bob on 27th Mar 2013

    You folks are really great. I have finally completed a project I started some time ago with ease and direction. Also, a very nice person, Ms Pam, was able to guide me over the hangups I ran in to being a complete novice with this computer (although it is formidable for getting things done).
    I found the program "Matilda's Fantastic Cookbook Software simple to use...more than suggestive on things to do and ways to do it. And, again the staff who solved my problems, Wonderful.

  7. Cookbook Program

    Posted by Elly on 19th Feb 2013

    I'm really having a good time with this program but am very new to it. So far it is working very well for me. There were other programs out there that allowed many more features but I found that they were more complicated than I wanted and added stuff that I had no interest in. I anticipate that this program will do what I want it to and not a lot more.

  8. Using mutilpe computers to creat the Cook Bok

    Posted by Lawrence Jenkins on 21st Jan 2013

    There is no instructions or methods to merge receipts created on multiple computers. I contacted the Home Office and was told that when the time comes to merge that I should email the sperate files by to there and they would merge the files and return them to me. There shou be a way that the customers could do this function themselves

  9. Neat Idea

    Posted by Unknown on 5th Jan 2013

    The Cookbook Software Is Super Easy To Use. Anyone Can Do It. My Cookbook Looks Great!

  10. Fabulous

    Posted by Melissa Dove on 3rd Jan 2013

    I love the product! I also loved how fast the item was shipped to me. Thats super important. I just wish it cam with instructions on how to navigate through the program. I have ADHD so teaching myself is a bit hard. But overall Awesome.
