Recipe Box is great for storing and managing recipes found on the internet.
Scanning in recipes from cookbooks, newspaper clippings or magazine articles is just as easy.
Recipe Box has a built in format logic which will convert a single ingredient line into 3 "invisible" fields. With other recipe programs, you would have to type in the quantity, measurement and ingredient for each line of ingredients. This can be overwhelming for recipes with a lot of ingredients.

Understanding how Ingredients are handled in Recipe Box
The Ingredients window for New or Altered Recipes has a special feature all of its own. It has a built in format logic which will convert a single ingredient line into 3 "invisible" fields.
Will be formatted to look like:
The 3 "invisible" fields within each line of the ingredients are:
The Measurement table is a special predefined list of common units of measure.
Some examples of the Measurements:
You can add your own list of measurements by selecting Misc Stuff, Measurements, Add. Press <Alt M> to view the table while in the Ingredients window.
Plurals for each of the Measurements are acceptable.
Enter the measurement exactly as they appear in the Measurement Table. Recipe Box looks for an exact match from this list when formatting each ingredient line.
Since the Ingredient window (in the normal unexploded view) may only display the first part of the line, we recommend placing the main item following the measurement.
The format logic is performed upon exiting the Ingredient editor or by clicking the Format button
This format logic is essential for converting serving sizes used to generate a Shopping List.
