Recipe Manager with Serving Sizer™ does what your regular cookbook can't--
instantly scales recipes based on number of guests coming for dinner!

Got a family of five? Scale 4 serving recipes to 5-- less leftovers than just doubling the recipe.
Holiday dinner? Change a 6-serving recipe to 14 one year, then change it to 9 the next.
Dinner for one? Convert that 4 serving recipe to a 1-person meal, so you don't have 3 days of leftovers.
Catering for 100?
Calculate the right amounts to buy and make. Reuse the recipe next time for a different sized group.
Dinner party?
Sure, anyone can double a recipe from 4 to 8 servings, but what if you have 10 people coming and don't want to run out of meat? Calculate how many pounds of meat to buy for your dinner party.
Dinner for two?
Scale down recipes for a romantic dinner for two.
Bought a cookbook while traveling out of the country?
Convert the recipes' ingredients between Metric and US measures so you can cook with  the kitchen tools you're used to.
Easily convert entire recipes using serving sizes--no more fraction math.
Save your favorites and revise recipes for current guest size in a snap.
