Building your award winning recipe book just got easier.

Plan to Eat’s Recipe Clipper (Bookmark) will save recipes to your Plan to Eat account while you are browsing the web and can be installed in most desktop browsers.

We are really excited to announce that the Recipe Clipper (Bookmark) is now also available for your iOS or Android devices! Adding recipes while on your device is fantastic because it allows you to add recipes while you’re on the go. (We love that!)

The installation of the Recipe Clipper (Bookmark) onto your device can be done automatically if your device and desktop sync through GoogleSync or iCloud, but it can also be installed manually. Here’s how:
