CD-ROM Today, May 1995
"You'll be amazed at how a dull sequence of step-by-step photos from a printed page can be relayed so much more effectively with a little help from multimedia."
"The Southern Living Cookbook makes preparing such fare as checkerboard sandwiches and fancy dinner rolls a snap. But there are many other important elements to the disc, such as fully a searchable recipe database; information on cookware, tools, and ingredients; lists of preplanned menus; and recipe themes. Any dish can be adjusted according to the number of people, saved in a file for easy meal-planning, then added to a shopping list which can be printed."
"More importantly, Southern Living has taken the time to retest and update each recipe."
