If you think cooking is just for people with lots of time and that ultimately it's just time taken to pursue other more 'intelligent' activities, you should think again. Cooking is actually a creative task that stimulates all your senses and your brain. The only question is where to start?

Have a look at Easy Recipe Deluxe, as it contains some interesting servings divided by categories and style. If you need a secure place to write down and catalog your grandmother's secret recipes, try this well-organized database. It has some extra features that allow you to create shopping lists based on the dishes you are going to prepare and you can export your cookbook in HTML or send it by mail to a friend.

The list of Easy Recipe Deluxe categories is huge and ranges from Appetizers, Breakfast, Microwave and Puddings to Stir-Fries and Vegetable dishes. You can also choose a recipe based on the main ingredient, or the style of cuisine.

I liked Easy Recipe Deluxe's clear interface, the photo of the dishes and the possibility of adding personal comments to the instructions. What I found annoying is the impossibility of downloading new online recipes and the fact that there are no step-by-step images on how to prepare the meal.

Don't store your favorite recipes on paper when you can have them all well organized in a clear database like Easy Recipe Deluxe. Unfortunately, though, it's not a great source of 'cooking inspiration'.
