If you don’t have a Mac in your kitchen yet, YummySoup will convince you that you need one. Calling this richly featured app a mere recipe organizer doesn’t do it justice -- it’s more about helping you collect, organize, use, and share recipes.
When you first start poking around, you’ll enjoy how simply you can sort all your favorite soups, desserts, sandwiches, and so on into groups, then drag-and-drop recipes on a weekly planner. You can even create impressive smart playlists, much like in iTunes, that harvest recipes based on a wide range of criteria.
All this delicious chocolate was really, really bad for our diet.
But when you move past those basics, YummySoup reveals its power. A terrific web importer helps you graze recipes from sites like Epicurious, AllRecipes, Cookstr, and much more, letting you quickly assemble a vast collection. Auto-sorting imports doesn’t always go well (sadly, chocolate mousse is not a form of stew), but fixing that only takes some brief cleanup.
Once your library’s built, you can share recipes with slick email and printing options that instantly create attractive layouts -- or you can start a RecipeCast, which uses MobileMe to broadcast your recipe stream straight into the YummySoup libraries of other subscribed users. The brilliant feature brings community -- the beating heart of all cooking—to life inside YummySoup’s colorful recipe box. The only shame here is that the app crashed a couple times on us, but it always relaunched without further fuss or muss.
The bottom line. If you love cooking from recipes and sharing your finds with friends and family, YummySoup is a scrumptious discovery.
Mac OS 10.6.6 or later
Effective recipe editing and organizing paired with terrific sharing features. Cool web importer lets you pull recipes from top sites.
Imported recipes usually require tag cleanup to be filed properly. Some minor crashes. Stock recipe themes look ripped from the menu of a chain restaurant.
