How to Export Your Recipe Box When Ziplist Shuts Down

@ mikedavidjeff - I'm in the same boat. Tried e-mailing a generic help question on their contact site but no response after several days.

So I guess it's find another service to use and hope you saved your files! Or at least most of them.

How to Export Your Recipe Box When Ziplist Shuts Down

At one point Ziplist offered the ability to add tags to your recipes after you clipped them. So if you went to you recipes you could click on 'fish' to see all you tagged under that item. Do Paprika or Evernote or Pepper Plate offer that ability? I browse on my computer, not through an app. Though it is nice to have the app that syncs with it.

Hey Chef, What Can I Do With Honey?

I'll have to try out honey powder! I primarily use it in my yogurt so the powder would be a different touch.
