tipA few final tips:

  • The webpage that you clip from should only have one recipe on it.
  • Make sure that the ingredients and steps are on the same page.
  • If there are missing steps or ingredients, tap Edit, then Show Extra Text at the bottom of the page. Extra text from the original webpage will appear. Add any line to the recipe by tapping on it and selecting an option such as Ingredient, Step, etc.
  • If you find that your recipe is missing a lot of steps or ingredients, here are some things to try:
    • If there is a print version of the recipe, try clipping that instead.
    • If you are on a mobile site, see if you can find the same recipe on the desktop version of the site.
    • The recipes that clip the best are the ones that look like, well, recipes. That is, it works best if there is a list of ingredients and instructions. Recipes that are more like stories, with a lot of conversational text, might not clip as cleanly. You can still clip those recipes, but you may have to clean them up a bit.
