This database project is a complete working recipe maintenance sample. The tables are built and populated with sample data. There are forms for creating, editing and deleting records for recipes, food items, pantry contents, and cooking instructions. You can print individual recipes and select recipes to produce a shopping list of required items minus what is already in your pantry to take to the grocery store. You may choose to print to a file and email it to your phone. It includes macros to automate form navigation, record marking, and a main menu switchboard form. However, it can be used without macros if you choose. A Writer document describing its setup and operation is included.
