My CookBook celebrates its 10th anniversary and becomes Cookmate!
The Android application has been around for 10 years now. At the time, we called the application Mes Recettes in French, then My CookBook in English. The application allowed you to save all your recipes in one place, to create your own cookbook, on your phone.
There were no other apps with the same name.
Since then many other apps have appeared with the same name, or a similar name.
We have also created a website, an iOS app, and now we’re launching an Alexa skill.
We have added new features such as creating shopping lists, sharing recipes with friends, meal planner. And we have grown all over the world!
For our 10th anniversary, we have therefore decided to evolve further by changing our name, to distinguish ourselves from all the other cookbooks. And because we hope to become more than a cookbook in the future : your kitchen companion, your cookmate!
Soon, you will find our applications under this new name: Cookmate – My personal recipe organizer
and the site with this URL: https://www.cookmate.online

and a Windows 10 version?
with an option to print a cookbook
I’ve always thought an “egg”-timer would be a great addition to the app.
That and the ability to strike items off the ingredients and/or directions list as you’re working your way through a recipe.
I’ve had My Cookbook (Premium) for many many years and have been extremely happy with it. With this change of name, will there be a change in the app or in the recipes saved? Will we have to download a different app or will it be reflected after some time in the app we’ve got? Other than that, keep up the great work!
Thank you in advance.
Hi Natasha, nothing changes except the name. I am still working and improving the existing apps
When I clicked on the link to cookmate.online, Chrome gave me a message saying it was not secure and a button saying “back to safety.” Please make the site secure so we can enter our passwords safely. Thanks!

I am a longtime premium use of My Cookbook Online (now Cookmate) & I have the following concern:
1. When I attempt to use the URL https://www.cookmate.online the following message appears:
Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead
“Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to http://www.cookmate.online. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details.
What can you do about it?
The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. You can notify the website’s administrator about the problem.
Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN “.
Please repair your domain certificate….Thank you
Hi this issue should be fixed
Hi. I have been using your app for a few years. Love it. What is the Alexa skill called? I can’t seem to find it under cookmate.
Hi, you can still find the alexa skill under My CookBook. I didn’t have yet the time to change it
I have been using My Cookbook / Cookmate for awhile now. Got around 851 recipes. I use Linux, Ubuntu to be exact. I would really like to see a native version of Cookmate for it. Although using the web browser works too.
As Wendy posted on here, I would like to see her first two feature requests implemented. Would be helpful.
Other than that keep up the good work.
A Ubuntu app is not planned currently … I think I won’t have the time unfortunately …
I’ve been using My CookBook for years and I love it!
However, I have recently tried another app (obviously I won’t name the app here) because it has three features that I need.
1. It has a PANTRY FEATURE. This would cut down on waste and cost considerably from shopping bills.
2. It has the ability to ‘PIN’ several recipes, to easily switch between mains, sides, desserts, etc. recipes with ease. As far as I can see, only one recipe can be read at a time on My Cookbook/Cookmate. It is a pain to keep closing and opening different recipes from the meal planner. (Hope this makes sense).
3. It has the ability to TEMPORARILY strike through ingredients in the ingredients list once used, and highlight the working step in the instructions, so it’s easy to see what step of the cooking process you’re at without rereading to find your place again.
Are any of these features something you may consider, going forward?
To clarify, to PIN the recipes on the working window so everything is one click on screen.
Thanks for your message ! I’ll try to add some of your ideas in a future release
But my todo list is huge, it may take some time…
Thanks for considering these features, and adding them as potentials on your To Do list. Much appreciate the swift reply too. Again, Thanks.
I love your product, I’ve been a premium user for several years. Are there any plans to be able to add costing of any kind? I have a chef service, and would love to have an ability to calculate recipe costs to produce invoices. Thanks for a great app!
Thanks for your message !
Currently we haven’t planned such feature…
But I have added it in our wish list .
We will try to add this feature in a future release. But our todo list is huge, it may take some time…
I would love to be able to take an existing recipe and be able to have the app convert to a healthy version. Not sure that is even possible.
Hi, We don’t have such feature currently …
