How to Save Recipes to Yumprint from any Website

The Yumprint Extension is the easiest way to save any recipe from any website with just a couple of clicks. To get started, go here, grab the extension, watch the 25 second video and save your first recipe.

After you've done that, keep reading to understand the more advanced features of the Yumprint extension:

  • Changing the picture
  • Multiple recipes on the same page
  • Fixing things the extension missed
  • Combining recipes
  • Hiding the extension


Changing the picture

Having the right picture is really important for your cookbook. If the extension grabs the wrong one, changing it is easy.

1. Click the picture

2a. Choose the correct picture

2b. If you don't like any of the options, choose the blank picture (we'll display a watermark of the Yumprint logo instead)

Multiple recipes on the same page

The extension handles multiple recipes on the same page without a problem.

1. Click the arrows at the bottom to move between recipes on the same page.


Fixing things it missed

Occasionally the extension will miss things in a recipe. It's best to always check.

1. The extension highlights everything it thinks is part of the recipe - darker green for ingredient titles, lighter green for ingredients, darker blue for preparation titles, and lighter blue for preparation steps. In this case you can see that it missed the first ingredient and thought that the last ingredient was a preparation title. It also grabbed the wrong title.
2. Click the box(es) on the extension that have the mistakes.
3. Correct the mistakes.


Combining recipes

Sometimes you may want to combine two recipes on the same page into the same recipe (the waffles recipe and the syrup recipe) or sometimes the extension may think one recipe is actually two recipes. In any case, combining them takes just a single click.

1. The extension places a gray box and green button over the other recipes on the page. Just click the green button to add that recipe to the one you're currently viewing.
2. Now the two recipes will be saved as one. (You may have noticed that it missed two ingredients, we added them in before we snapped the picture)


Hiding the extension

On small screens, the extension can sometimes get in the way if you need to copy and paste something into the recipe. In that case, just minimize it while you copy and paste.

1. Just click this button to minimize the extension.

2. It will fold up nicely like this.

  1. saving any recipe from the web seems to automatically mark it as cooked? whether i've made something or not and sorting between those is a big feature of yumprint, and I can't do this now if it marks everything i add via the extension to YP as cooked . . ugh.

  2. I get my paper online and there are frequently great recipes in the paper, but yum print doesn't come up on the newspaper website. Anyway to simply cut and paste?

    1. Have you got the Recipe Clipper on your computer? If so, you can just click the clipper icon, and a box will populate your screen for Yumprint, and you can then save the recipe. No cutting or pasting necessary. Google how to install the 'Recipe Clipper".

    1. Samr thing is happrning on my PC. I love the convenience of yumprint and the way it 'used to' work so easily. Now when I attempt to save, I am getting a sign in screen. Unfortunately, the sign in with FB goes to a can't connect screen. Does not like either my password or email? Will not accept an attempt to retrieve a forgotten password. If someone figures out how to resolve this, please post.

  7. For some reason, I cannot navigate beyond a certain letter of the alphabet when I go to enter a recipe in a certain category i.e. soup. Yumprint fixed this for me before but I am having the problem again. Is there just too much info in there?
