Icon BeerMeister 3.0

When I first started homebrewing a few years ago, I spent a lot of time looking for recipes...and for Macintosh recipe software. In the process, I collected quite a few recipes, but didn't find much software. So I decided to write my own. The result, which you see here, is BeerMeister.

Icon The Computer Cookbook 3.1.6

The Computer Cookbook allows you to keep track of, add, delete and manage your Recipes easily on your computer. The Big Deal about my program is that you enter your recipes as you would find them in real recipes, As Whole numbers & FRACTIONS. No need to convert your recipes to decimals like most other cookbook / recipe programs make you do. With The Computer Cookbook you would enter 2 3/4 cups AS 2 3/4 cups. The Computer Cookbook also allows you to Re-Size your recipes without permanently changing your original recipe. You can even print out this re-sized recipe!

Icon MacGourmet 2.4.5

You organize your digital photos, you make playlists of your mp3s. Now bring your recipe organization into the 21st century with MacGourmet. Think of MacGourmet as "iTunes for recipes."MacGourmet helps you create and edit recipes, wine notes and cooking notes, easily browse your entire collection and build your own custom lists for categories like appetizers or desserts.
In addition to recipes, MacGourmet lets you save notes and labels for wines you've had, creating a digital "wine scrapbook." Had a great wine that would go well with a certain recipe? MacGourmet lets you make a relationship between them. In fact, make one or many relationships between every kind of recipe box item.
And like your wine notes, you can keep lists of your cooking notes, those nuggets of wisdom that are general and not necessarily specific to any one recipe or wine.

Icon Measuring Cup 1.2.3

I would like to think that it is the easiest to use recipe management software out there in the Mac OS X land. Think iTunes or iPhoto for recipes. Specifically, these are the features:
Simple organization of recipes. iTunes/iPhoto kind of organization. Allows user defined categories and sub-categories. Searchable.
In-place editing. Some software have a presentation view that is different from a editing view. I find that cumbersome. I like to edit my recipe as easy as when I am viewing it.
Undo/Redo support. Good - no, make that great - undo/redo support. I am a careless person and tend to make mistakes and so I absolutely need this support.
Simple view of a recipe. Shows the most important detail in the main screen. The rest is tucked away in an Aqua drawer.
Aqua luscious. I try to be a good OS X citizen.
XML backing store. You probably don't care about this but I thought it would be cool to mention it. All recipes are stored as XML file for easy sharing eventually.

The smart solution for your cooking and grocery shopping. Recipes are easily added by typing them in, pasting from the clipboard, or importing directly from the internet: no formatting is necessary. The wizard interprets the recipes, links them to the database of grocery items or to other recipes and yields an accurate nutritional analysis without user intervention.
