What's Cookin'

-- by Nancy A. Lang

If the thought of planning and preparing meals fills you with dread, The Complete Interactive Cookbook removes the anxiety. It culls more than 2,500 recipes from the HP Books series. Choose from 50 preplanned menus, or have the Menu Wizard concoct a meal around the dish of your choice. You can scale the recipes to serve more people, and the program automatically creates a shopping list, adding up the ingredients used in more than one recipe. The 50-plus full-motion video demonstrations are crisp and informative. Now if it would only do the dishes.
