    Question Mastercook Help???

    OK, What exactly is the deal?

    Since I'm still new at this whole BB, is Mastercook software you can purchase to store/file all your BB recipes and CL magazine recipes?

    Where can I get some general information re: Mastercook?
    Where is it available? Cost??

    My collection of NEW recipes just from this BB is really getting out of control.

    "2" three ring binders and I still have more recipes?
    HELP!!! HELP!!! HELP!!!
    Suggestions, Recommendations.
    Thanks to all of new friends, Terri

    Terri,

    I bought mine from www.valusoft.com for $17 including shipping. It didn't come with a paper manual, only online.

    Diane's recommendation to search for Mastercook on the boards is a good one... there have been a lot of threads on the program and I know there are some good tips out there on getting started, importing recipes, etc. Good luck!

    Does anyone know where you can buy the Cooking Light edition? I looked on Amazon, but it is no longer available there. I don't see the CL edition on the ValuSoft site either.

    You might get lucky and find one on eBay or half.com

    If you check back periodically, someone is bound to sell an edition that you are looking for.

    Amy, I don't think the most recent version of the software is available with Cooking Light recipes. So if you want that version, you'd be looking to purchase it from a re-seller, as Cinnamon mentioned above.

    Some libraries also carry the CD, so you could test it first and see if it's something you like....

    So if you keep watching, maybe you can get the one you want.

    this last one is a 4.0

    They do have a 6.0 out now that you should be able to find. I can't tell you the differeces but I have heard the differences between 5.0 and 6.0 are mostly speed but there are further differences between the 4.0 and the 6.0. Just a little heads up.
