Apps or sites for recipe storage

Are there any Apple apps or online sites which can act as a repository for online recipes?

ie if I have 10 recipes from various unconnected sites from the web, is there a site which will collate them in a standard format? Or do I just need to print them out and keep them in a folder?

Thanks

Re: Apps or sites for recipe storage

What I do is copy and paste each recipe into a Word document and then save each document into a folder called "Recipes," which I keep on my desktop.

Yeah - I bookmark them through a folder on my browser, but I was looking for something sexier

Re: Apps or sites for recipe storage

Hi, that's a great idea, I use Pinterest for some of the recipes I have found online http://pinterest.com/ once you have put on a photo you like of a dish a double click will take you back to the page with the recipe on, so it's rather nice, and free too.

Apps I just found on a quick hunt:

http://www.148apps.com/reviews/papri...r-ipad-review/ Paprika Recipe Manager for the ipad - costs 4.99 usd

http://www.myrecipebookapp.com/ My Recipe Book App - costs 2.99 usd

Both seem to allow you to store online recipes and add your own manually, I haven't tried them personally though. Hope that helps a bit

Re: Apps or sites for recipe storage

Most online recipes have a 'Print' format option which I then convert to PDF and keep as a folder on my desktop, then if I do need to print them I know where to go.

Having said that most of the time my laptop ends up in the kitchen with most of what I am baking on it - surely there must be a market for a kitchen-proof iPad/Kindle Fire?

Re: Apps or sites for recipe storage

I've been using Paprika and I think it's brilliant. It makes it very easy to save items from various websites. For dedicated recipe sites, like epicurious or bbc food, you can just save a recipe from within the app's browser and all the relevant info is automatically extracted and saved into a standard format. For blogs and the like, you highlight the ingredients, and add manually. Hard to explain, brilliant in practice and worth every penny.

Re: Apps or sites for recipe storage

I've been using Evernote more and more. I just installed the Evernote Food app on my phone and once I signed in with my Evernote account info it automatically recognized which of my notes were recipes and imported them. Maybe a phone would be better in the kitchen than a laptop ... less area to catch the splashes.

That is what I do. I find that many sites have a lot of irrelevant information such as personal comments, adverts etc.

I usually edit the recipe down to the basic information, amending any ingredients/measurement units if required.

Is Evernote just a form of cloud storage? I'm with CC .. I don't get what it supposed to do.

Oh, OK - I just tried that and it works quite nicely - thanks

(I still only think that Evernote is a good app for trainspotters.....but maybe I'm missing something. I never used to carry a notepad for storing random thoughts, so don't know what advantage Evernote gives me)

Just had a quick look at Evernote. It looks great - much better than Pinterest or using Internet Favourites. Thanks

Re: Apps or sites for recipe storage

I always avoided evernote because I thought you had to pay extra to access notes offline, is that still the case?
