Default BigOven Recipe Software Heats up Recipe Sharing

BigOven 1.5 Heats Up Recipe Sharing - Access, Organize and Share
Recipes Online with a New Level of Ease
SDMVentures announces the immediate availability of BigOven 1.5
(http://www.bigoven.com), an easy new way for cooks to discover great
recipes, share their best recipes with friends and family, and cook
more nutritious meals. BigOven for Windows combines award-winning,
powerful and versatile Windows-based recipe software with one-click
searchable access to a massive 150,000+ recipe archive.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 30, 2004 -- SDMVentures announces the
immediate availability of BigOven 1.5 (www.bigoven.com), an easy new
way for cooks to discover great recipes, share their best recipes with
friends and family, and cook more nutritious meals. BigOven for
Windows combines award-winning, powerful and versatile Windows-based
recipe software with one-click searchable access to a massive 150,000+
recipe archive.

"With BigOven version 1.5", said Steve Murch, founder and avid chef,
"we believe we've really pushed the ease-of-use to a new level in the
cooking software category for everyday cooks, while also delivering
the best way for everyone to share their favorite recipes online."

Do More With Recipes You Have

BigOven lets users drag and drop recipes onto a shopping list,
automatically creating a combined, sorted grocery list in seconds.
Advance meal planners can also drag and drop recipes onto an
Outlook-style calendar, and then create shopping lists automatically
for any date range.

Quickly Enter Recipes Into BigOven from Virtually Any Source

BigOven's recipe archive contains more than 150,000 recipes shared on
the Internet over the years by users around the world, from breakfast
through appetizers through mixed drinks. (In a traditional printed
cookbook format, this would reach a stack more than three stories
high.) Users can search this recipe collection easily from within
BigOven, and import any they choose to their desktop PC with a simple
click of the mouse for rating, editing, resizing, and more.

Those who already have one or more favorite sources of recipes will
find BigOven a handy complement, and a place to organize them in one
convenient location. Users can browse the web from within the program,
and BigOven's unique "Screen Import" feature lets users grab recipe
text quickly from the Windows clipboard with just a few simple clicks
of the mouse. BigOven will also uniquely instantly recognize recipe
text pasted in the popular "Exported from MasterCook" text format.
BigOven can also import files from many older recipe program formats
(MasterCook .MXP, .MX2, MealMaster .MMF, Cook'n .DBF), making it quick
to build a starting collection of recipes, from slow-cooker to
barbeque to popular diet collections. Recipes can be edited, tagged
with an unlimited number of keywords, rated, and photos can be added.

Share Recipes Online In Three Easy Ways

BigOven goes beyond single-user recipe software of the past, making
the sharing of recipes with friends and family a major focus of the
program. To this end, BigOven makes extensive use of Microsoft's .NET
technologies and Extensible Markup Language (XML).

First, new recipes can be posted from within the program with a couple
clicks of the mouse to BigOven.com, which is a rapidly growing source
of over 150,000 searchable recipes. Users around the world can then
provide star ratings and feedback.

Users can also email recipes directly to friends from within BigOven.
Email recipients get both the recipe text and photo, plus a BigOven
Smart Recipe Attachment (XML), which is instantly recognized and
imported into BigOven when double-clicked, saving considerable
retyping on the part of the recipient.

Finally, bloggers will appreciate BigOven's easy Publish to HTML
feature, which instantly creates a website from the user's favorite
recipes, complete with an index page.
BigOven 1.5 is Great for Calorie Counters and Low-Carb Dieters, Too

BigOven ships with the full U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition
database, which provides detailed nutritional content on more than
6,000 ingredients. BigOven can analyze any recipe for its nutritional
content, including carbohydrates, calories, fat content, sodium and
more. Among other uses, family favorites can be analyzed and altered
by the user to lessen fat, sodium, carbohydrate, or other nutritional
elements.
