Cook'n Recipe Organizer Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

And I am thrilled that I was able to take part in this review for Cook'n.  

After the simple installation, I took the Cook'n tutorial.  I advise you to take advantage of this simply because there is So much that Cook'n has to offer.  I know that if I tried to manage my way around the site without it, I would have missed much of what the program has to offer.  

For me the best aspect of Cook'n is I am able to have all my Pinterest recipes n My Cookbook Library.  The process to create and capture  my Pinterest Cookbook took a few minutes, but was worth it.  

The next best thing is that I am able to access Cook'n on my pc, my ChromeBook and my Android smart phone.  This make shopping a snap.

For more information on Cook'n and the opportunity to win a Cook'n Recipe Organizer keep reading.  Good Luck and keep Cook'n.
