Introducing Yumprint

Pasplore was born in our heads one year ago today. 


At that time, our goal was to create technology that would allow you to easily grab anything on the web and actually use it to do stuff in real life. We wanted to create a passport to explore the web freely. Enter Pasplore.

We chose recipes as what we thought would be the first of many applications of Pasplore. But nine months in to building Pasplore, we began to realize that recipes opened up a set of entirely new possibilities.

Ironically, we began to see a bigger opportunity for Pasplore by focusing on something smaller: eating.


We saw an opportunity to create a product that made the entire process of eating - from deciding what to eat to actually putting food in your mouth - easier, more delicious, more inspiring and healthier too.

Most people don't eat well. We eat things that taste just okay, and far too often, we eat things that negatively impact our health. We wanted to change this.

We wanted to create a product that made it easy to eat things that aren't just okay but that are exciting, delicious AND good for your health.

We wanted to create a product that made it easier to cook more often, to discover new recipes, and to share your cooking and eating experiences with others.

We wanted to create a food experience as unique as you are.

So today we introduce Yumprint.


Today's release of Yumprint is a lot like Pasplore. All the great functionality of Pasplore is still on Yumprint, you sign in just as before, and all your recipes are just as you left them. The most noticeable change is that we've introduced a cleaner, sleeker look that is more friendly for mobile devices (dragging and dropping now works for mobile as well).

But the most important change is what you can't see (but soon will). Our new eating-focused vision requires a much deeper understanding of recipes. So now when you save a recipe from a blog or type in your own recipe on Yumprint, we silently calculate everything about that recipe - from how much selenium it has to whether it's gluten free.

With this understanding of recipes, we can understand your unique food preferences. We can understand your yumprint.

In the coming months, we'll be rolling out features that use your yumprint to make dinnertime less stressful and more inspiring, healthful eating more intuitive and delicious, and discovering recipes that you love easier than ever before. And as always, we'll aim to make every new feature integrate as seamlessly with your life as possible.

Now it's time for you to fully express your yumprint.


Express it by saving recipes from your favorite places on the web, rating what you cook, following others who have yumprints similar to yours and dragging recipes onto your food timeline.

So welcome to Yumprint! We're excited to have you on board as we make a more delicious and more healthful future.

  1. I really want to try this; I've developed lots of food allergies, so it would be great to have my kind of recipes get suggested to me. But when I tried to install it on my mac's safari, it said: "An error occurred while installing the extension “Yumprin" :( What am I doing wrong? And yep! This is AZ Paola who now lives in DC :)

    1. Hi Paola,

      It's great to hear from you. We just tried installing the extension on a few different macs and safari versions and it seems to be working; however, we did see the problem that you mentioned once. We were able to install the extension anyway by clicking the download area (the down arrow to the right of the URL bar) and then clicked "clear" and tried it again and it worked. So maybe that will work for you.

      If this isn't clear or you need more help, I'd be glad to help out via email.

  5. Yumprint no longer pops up on recipe pages. Up in the toolbar it has a red dot on it with the number 1 on it.What does this mean? How do I get rid of that? How do I get yumprint to work again?

    1. Clicking the icon on the toolbar will allow you to save the recipes on the page. When the icon has a red number it is indicating that it has found a recipe on the page.

  6. Is anyone else experiencing problems with the website. I clicked the orange banner at the top "Update your Recipe Clipper" and the "add Yumprint" box came up. I selected "Add extension" but then nothing happened. Now none of the recipe information is appearing when I click on my Yumprint icon. I went to Get Support, but there is no longer a support page. I'm not sure what is going on and how to resolve the problem. Any advise would be appreciated.

  7. Unknown: I am having exactly the same problem. Some of my cookbooks will open, several will not. There is one recipe open on the desktop, and it will not stay closed. I LOVE this program. I depend on this program. I use it for grocery list. My husband is diabetic and I really need this to work the way it used to work. I'd uninstall it, and re-install, but I've spent a lot of time building my cookbooks, and I do NOT want to lose all this. I also get an error message when I click support. What's going on people? Have we been abandoned?

    1. Glad to see that it is not only me that can't get into Yumprint account. I have saved hundreds of recipes there. This happened before but it did come back. Hope it is soon. When and if it comes back online I'm to to email all my recipes to me. I worked hard building my cookbook over the past few years. So sad.

  10. Yumprint? We all need you to fix the error please, please, please! We need this function to work, we are desperate here.

  11. ditto Kim Lange...I've been having trouble signing in, I would hate to lose all my recipes on yumprint! My server is saying that it's not secure, but that really doesn't matter to me, the only things hackers could get is a great recipe!

  12. I to am no longer able to access my yumprint recipes. Ech!!!! So frustrating. However, there is another site you can use for the future. It's called "copymethat" and I was using it in tandem with yumprint in case either of them died. Well, copymethat has never failed me. Check it out. It is very reliable!

  13. Has anybody learned anything about why it won't work anymore? The web page won't come up so I can't even contact customer service! I'm desperate here!

  14. I tried contacting them via email: support@yumrpint.com, but have not heard back from them.

  15. I to am very frustrated that I can't access anything regarding yumprint. They don't even have a contact us or support system in place. I too have lost hundreds of recipes. I will look into "copymethat" but it still won't give me the recipes I had saved. Totally fed up with yumprint at the moment.

  18. My Yumprint just worked for me this AM. YAY!! Hope it is still working when I get home from work. Going to save recipes somewhere else as a backup.

  20. Now that Yumprint is back online I went and counted all the categories and recipes I have saved there. I do cross reference so a slow cooker beef and pasta recipe will be in 3 categories. I am almost ashamed to say that I have 63 categories (many small ones) and 2153 recipes (many are repeated in multiple categories). Sadly site won't let me email them to myself. So going to save favorites to www.copymethat.com as a backup. Yup, I'm a recipe addict. My biggest category? Fudge. Had lazy day so searched for fudge recipes. Haven't made any. But I do have 179 different recipes. OMG!
