About DesktopCookbook - Creating an Online Cookbook

A few years back, my brother and his wife created a family cookbook...many of our family and friends from all over the world contributed recipes to this cookbook. It was beautifully bound and a wonderful gift. As time went by, some of the recipes needed to be modified and others needed to be added. It became very difficult to make these changes, additions, and to ensure everyone had received them...the idea for DesktopCookbook was born. The original goal of DesktopCookbook was to provide our family with a way to access, modify, add, and share this great family cookbook.

As we created this online family cookbook, we realized that other people, groups, and families probably have this same problem...how to access and share recipes, easily and efficiently. We decided to offer DesktopCookbooks to everyone.

With DesktopCookbook, we believe we have achieved our original goal: Create a way to easily access, share, create, and find the recipes we love to make.

You'll be amazed at how fast you can create a cookbook when you add and share recipes with a group or with other members.

We hope you enjoy creating your own DesktopCookbook Online Cookbook just as we have.
