Add recipes on your iPad

Add recipes on your iPad

There are a few new features that make it easier when you’re entering recipes from old recipe cards, torn out magazine pages, or memory.

First, there is now a quick look-up pop-up that comes up when you’re entering ingredients.  So, if you have already added onions, finely chopped as an ingredient, just start typing onions, and everything that contains the letters you have typed will pop up.  Just touch the one you want, and you’re ready to enter the next ingredient.

Second, you can now enter a measurement for the amount of servings.  If your recipe makes 3 dozen cookies, put it as 3 dozen, if it makes 2 pies you can type that right in.

Third, you can now upload more than one photo of your recipe if you like shots of what it looks like going along, or if you just like to take multiple photos.

You can still enter all the important info about your recipe like the name, where it’s from, prep time, cook time, categories, ingredients and directions.

  1. I am interested in My Recipe Book for my wife, however I wonder if there is an easier way to import the recipes. Whether her own from the PC or download from the internet.

    • You can download recipes from the internet from within the app from several of the major recipe websites. There is not currently a way to import from your computer into the app.

    • I can see the problem with downloading from any website but can you at least allow copy paste into your ingredients and Directions. This way you can reduce the effort by copy from website to the app.
      this is a good application but i am sure users will soon find it frustrating not to be able to get specil recipes without a lot of effort.

      • Hi – we will be working on this in the next update – to allow copy/paste from more websites. Thanks for the suggestion.

        • So glad to hear. I love love love this app. I would definitely like to find a way to get recipes loaded more easily. I like The Pioneer Woman website and would like for it to be one that can be downloaded.

  2. Thanks for this great app! My mother-in-law, sister, and I all have it, and we were wondering if there is a way for us to share recipes, or if we have to all enter them separately. Thanks so much!

  3. I am interested in purchasing your recipe software for myself. I have read that you will be making many new improvementsbto your software. What kind of improvements do you plan on making and how long do you think it will be before you make these improvements? Will any of your future improvements be a cut and paste function for importing recipes from other documents such as email, word etc?

    • I’m not sure exactly what we’ll be working on next, but we have had quite a few requests to look at importing recipes from other sources, so I’m sure we will be tackling that one.

  5. I subscribe to Sunset Magazine and view monthly issues on my bookshelf on my iPad. How do I get the recipes into My Recipe Book app from there?
