I'm hoping there are some experienced MasterCook users who are willing to share their experience.
I'm brand new to the software, and while I am thrilled to have so many "cookbooks" and recipes included with the software, I am concerned that the already full "virtual cookbook" shelf will make it difficult to save and find my own recipes.
How have you experienced users approached this? Do you keep all of the provided resources active, or do you somehow "hide" them until you choose to use them? I wonder if I wouldn't prefer to start with an "empty bookshelf" in order to create my own set of cookbooks and recipes rather than adding mine to an already existing set of cookbooks. I know I can create new cookbooks for my recipes, but it seems like they'd get lost among the many cookbooks already provided.
I hope this makes sense. Thoughts? Suggestions? Are there other forums to discuss MasterCook as a user?
Thanks for sharing your experience!
