Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.


My sis uses it. She uses the 'clippings' feature almost exclusively which grabs web recipes

From the MacGourmet people (Mariner Software) is this answer:

Q: Is there any way to scan in recipes and import them into MacGourmet?

A: MacGourmet doesn’t have the ability to scan files built into it, but most scanners come with a software bundle that includes something called OCR software. This allows you to scan documents and translate the text in the scan to text you can use. You have to use an external application for this because, well, OCR is significantly more complex than MacGourmet itself. Because of this, scanning is not built into the product.

Once you’ve scanned and used OCR to convert the scan to text, it’s just a matter of opening the text in a text editing app that supports Mac OS X services, like TextEdit, and then using MacGourmet’s web import assistant to clip and import each recipe.

Inside me lives a skinny woman crying to get out, but I can usually shut her up with cookies!
