We do NOT allow advertising at our forum. HOWEVER, recipe software is my personal addiction (Bev's too, I think)...and we do use Mastercook and have for a few decades. So when there is something new like A GREAT PRICE ... I feel I have to share it. ($6.49 for an older version!!)
As you know, most of the hot recipe software programs went poof. A couple remain but are super expensive. (To my mind, Mastercook was always the best anyway and the best bargain.) BUT, the costs went through the roof for engineering and improvements, plus the new owner had to invest HUGE in order to buy the company, plus the online part of it is SUPER expensive for the owner, etc., etc... SO, the price is not low like it used to always be.
HOWEVER!!! The owner has now offered a deal to anyone strapped for cash or anyone who wants a good deal ON AN OLDER VERSION. But not all that old. Mastercook 14. (There was 15 and the next version was 20 (the current version.)
You can get MasterCook 14 at MasterCook.com on sale for only $6.49 here: Intro to MasterCook (Digital Download) <https://www.mastercook.com/intro-to-mastercook-digital-download>
Yes, it is a download. No need to wait for a cd. This version has all the features, pretty much...as I recall. It is for your computer. I think the online part of it, optional, is extra.
