    I have tried Evernote, Google Drive, one other app on phone. But I usually end up printing it, make it a few times and start to sort of remember the recipe.

    Do you know any app that is better than the rest?

    Off late, I got a note book and started writing them down, that way it is hand written and also a memory for my children. But doing it electronically is much faster and easier.

    Bookmark in Chrome browser and synchronize the bookmarks with your google account. This way even if you use a different laptop, you can still access your fav recipes.

    I have heard people sing praises of the Paprika app. If I find a recipe I really like from a blog then I copy it, make a PDF and save it in my recipe folder. I learned the hard way after a blog disappeared with no warning.

    Stupid thing?!! Quite the opposite... I searched how to add myself as a contact - created a group and immediately removed the other person. : ) Kind of like marrying a tree : )

    Such a handy way to save info and links. I go to sleep wiser than I woke up. : )

    Besides note-book, paper cuttings from news magazines collected from some forty six years ago all in attic with pages all turned yellow and till it crumbles spouse is not ready to part with. These not organised yet, she got the knack to pick it up quickly from that maze.

    Now with u tube one is having all at fingertips which includes IL’s moderator @krishnaamma . She has produced u tube recipes for wide varieties cuisines of south north east and west continental and oriental.

    @krishnamma too must be having a knack of holding all recipes in organised way. I am tagging her here with a request to post her comments.Krishnaammas Kitchen
