Does anyone know of any other recipe/menu planning software similar to Say MMM that doesn't have a monthly subscription?
I've looked at one tsp, but it doesn't have the menu planning,
pdacookbook live, but it can only be used on one phone and I want my dh to be able to access all our menu plans, recipes, and shopping lists from his phone as well as mine (and any pc, of course!),
Kitchen Monki has a lot of the features I want but you can only text shopping lists so I can't view recipes on my phone and also we do not have a text plan,
I love all the features of Cook'N or Living Cookbook, but I wouldn't be able to access everything from my phone besides emailing an occasional list or recipe (I want to be able to pick out recipes on the fly while I'm out and about depending on what's on sale and also not have to go back to the computer when I am in the kitchen or need to print out recipes or plans)....
Say MMM definitely seems to do all I want and more, but I don't want to get stuck with a monthly (does anyone know if you can back up all your recipes stored there on your own computer?) since it could change anytime and it's more expensive than other monthly services ($3/mo).
I keep thinking one of these days I will create my own database, but I haven't gotten around to doing that yet and I've been saying it for years... I could just store all my recipes on google docs, but I really want to have my dh be able to have grocery checklists on his phone since he's right next door to the store, but is it really worth $3/ month when I can just email him a list and he can print it out? Thinking out loud, here...
I'd love to get any feedback from anyone that's used any of these services or others and what they think (especially if my concerns about any of them are wrong?). I keep thinking there's the perfect one out there, I just don't know where to find it! I know I can just try a lot of them out, but I don't want to take the time to add in multiple recipes if I know it's not going to work.
