Cook'n Recipe Organizer Review and Giveaway

In the Birbitt Thinks house we prefer to eat mostly fruits and vegetables and only have cuts of meat 3-4 times a week, and we eat mostly organic food finding really yummy recipes is hard work.  Most traditional recipes just don't work out for use very well, because either there's an ingredient that I don't like to use or they aren't hearty enough to create a filling meal with.

As a solution to this problem I scour the internet for delicious recipes that I can use in my own kitchen, well the end result of this has been that I have pages and pages of printed internet recipes that get lost and I have to go back and hunt for them again on the internet, or I have a pile of recipe bookmarks and Pinterest pins that I'll never be able to use when I need them because they just aren't organized! 

Cook'n Recipe Organizer

Well, of course I have found a solution and I want to share it with you all! Meet the Cook'n Recipe Organizer with this simple download you can not only save, but also organize your favorite internet (and written) recipes!  That's right, you can organize all of your recipes with Cook'n!  Just look at all the features you get in one simple download:

In addition to all of this Cook'n Recipe Organizer comes with a 200% money back guarantee!  If you aren't fully satisfied, which I know you will be, then you will get your money back AND Dan Oaks will buy you the recipe software of your choice.  How's that for confidence in his product huh?  
So let me tell you what Cook'n has done for me, I have been able to go through my bookmarks and get all those recipes into the software, organized in a way I'll always be able to find my recipes when I need them, AND generate a shopping list based on selecting the recipes I wish to prepare that week!  For this busy mom, the time I have saved using this software has been priceless.  

Now I did find a few recipes that didn't capture easily for me, but it wasn't a problem I just entered the recipe manually and it still works great.  Seriously this is probably the best software I've ever seen for storing recipes and making the available when needed.  When a friend asked me for my recipe for squash au gratin, I was able to easily pull it up in cook'n and click the email button to send it to my friend and the best part is that unlike other recipe software programs I've tried my friend didn't need to have the software to view the recipe!  

Now in addition to all of those great features, you also get access to additional cook books that you can purchase, and even get one book free with purchase of the software. Seriously, what could possibly be easier?  Now you can purchase your own copy as a download or on CD for only $79.95, and that includes EVERYTHING, all future updates, access to all features in the software, and a free cookbook of your choice!  

But the best part is that readers of Birbitt Thinks are getting a special deal!  If you order your copy of Cook'n after reading this review and use coupon code cookngift you can get 50% off your order!  That is HALF-PRICE, now what could be better? Now don't forget to head on over to their Facebook page for their weekly giveaways!  You can also visit them on Pinterest and Twitter. Did I mention that Cook'n software would make a great gift for the foodies on your list?  

Oh, and because the product is so wonderful, and because I know you are going to love it, and because Mr. Dan Oaks is such an awesome guy ONE lucky reader is going to get their own Cook'n software download for FREE!  That's right yet another awesome Birbitt Thinks giveaway, and you won't want to miss this one!

Birbitt Thinks was provided a free copy of Cook'n Software in exchange for this review.  I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are solely my own.   


  1. Really cool! Thats what I need fuel for the obsession! Thanks!!!! :)

  2. I've tried several digital recipe programs in the past, and what I love most about this is the auto capture! That's a big deal to me because I have (and/or want/need) hundreds if not thousands of recipes. I don't have time to enter them all!! This sounds excellent - thanks for the giveaway!

  3. wow amazing stuff

  4. I've never tried virtual organizers. This may be something i could benefit from. I'm definitely hopeless in that arena. It's more like organized chaos at my home. I'm so used to being organized to a t at work that i just want to come home to do nothing lol thanks for this review.

  5. I love the print a family cookbook option. It would make what to give my sis-in-laws this Christmas a no-brainer.

  6. The drag and Drop recipes sound pretty easy to use!!

  7. I love the capture ability, great giveaway, thanks!

  8. I love the organizing ability. Really need to get organized!

  12. I tend not to create a bunch of comments, however i did
    some searching and wound up here "Cook'n Recipe Organizer Review and Giveaway".
    And I actually do have a few questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or does it appear like some of these responses appear like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of all of all your shared sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
    Here is my page :: Instalación geotermia en Madrid

  13. For most recent news you have to pay a quick visit web and on the web I
    found this site as a best web site for most
    recent updates.

  14. BUYER BEWARE - They refuse to honor their guarantee.

    I purchased this software on December 13, 2012. based on the guarantee published on their web site:

    "Risk-Free 200% Guarantee Means You Can't Lose If you are not completely satisfied with the quality of your Cook'n Software, I will refund your purchase! In fact, I will go one step further and buy you the recipe software product of your choice."

    I evaluated the software for two weeks and on December 26, I send an email to the address provided in my order confirmation stating that I would like a refund. I know they received the email because I received an out-of-the-office message stating they would reply after the holidays and wishing me a blessed Christmas season. In that email, I provided three reasons for my decision which I've listed below and indicated that I would like them to purchase the software of my choice "Living Cookbook".

    As of today March 4, 2013, I still have not received either a refund or the software product of my choice despite two additional emails. One sent on January 22, 2013 and one sent on February 10, 2013.

    I am using Living Cookbook and find it a far superior product at about a third of the cost of Cook'n.

    Here are the reasons I chose to return the product for a refund:

    1) When I view a recipe in Living Cookbook, I am able to see both the recipe ingredients and the nutrition information all at the same time. With Cook'n I have to click to a different page and scroll over to see the entire report of the nutrition data.

    2) When I print a recipe with Living Cookbook, the format is clean and simple and the nutrition information is automatically included without any extra configuration or option selection.

    3) The Living Cookbook import did not maintain the hierarchy of cookbook chapters. Recipes were placed only in the lowest level cookbook chapter.
