Paprika Recipe Manager

Paprika Recipe Manager
As a self proclaimed software junkie, one application I’ve used for about 27 years is Mastercook recipe manager.  It was (and remains) a  great desktop app.  But when they ventured into the realm of cloud syncing so that the recipes sync between a desktop, tablet and phone, they failed miserably.  Since I’m a loyal customer, I str [...]
