    We can no longer import recipes after the upgrade. We have tried everything suggested on the site and by emails. Any help? If not do you have an alternative suggestion.

    Can't help you with MacGourmet, but have been using Paprika on OS X and iOS both and it works really well. It syncs between devices and does a good job importing recipes from web sites.

    Try looking at safari services ~ services preferences - I had to manually enable the text clipping service there in order for it to work in the same way that it did in previous versions.

    Hope that helps :)

    Well we were able to enable something that gave the importing option but then it said it couldn't process the recipe. Not sure when you say enable text clipping? We didn't see that option?

    At least for me there seem to be two options - one is "import recipe from web page". But directly above that within services preferences is "clip recipe". I had to enable "clip recipe" within preferences for it to work. As far as I can tell, import recipe requires certain structured formats, while clip recipe allows you to map text to specific fields.

    Another vote for Paprika. Honestly, I haven't used it much, but did a lot of research and it seems to be them most robust. I do have the iOS version and like it.

    I've used Paprika for a long time now. Syncs flawlessly between the Mac and iPhone and is very easy to get recipes from the internet. Also you can change the number of servings and the measurements of required ingredients are automatically changed. Can't fault the program at all.

    I use Paprika almost daily, have it for both mac and iPhone. It works great! There are some areas that it could improve on: 1) and the big one, be able to sort using multiple categories at once, 2) integrate shopping list with Mac Reminders app automatically and 3) be able to scale volumes inside recipe directions, not just ingredients list. And a few other very minor things, but on the whole I find it invaluable in my everyday cooking and menu planning.
