I’ve used this handy program for about 4 years now.
It produces a shopping list and adjusts recipes for the number of guests as well.

Bon, with the prices of food on the rise tody it’s kind of nice to get a handle on some decent recipes and be able to adjust the portions . I’m not all that fond of leftovers myself.

I also like the variations on a basic recipe, It’s usually difficult to to a comparison as easy as this.

My mother was a good cook but scalloped potatoes were not her stongest suit.
To this day I have an aversion toward them.

That and blood sausage and cottage cheese.

Bob thanks for the site I just joined I love left overs, but not all kinds. I live alone so to fuss with a nice recipe and eat it once is a waste for me. This is awesome thanks Bob

Thanks Rosewood.
I too like the scalability of the recipes and the fact you can print out your shopping list.

Some recipes like Chilli for instance, freeze quite well in individual portions.

Cheers
Bob
