MAC recipe program

Does anyone have or recommend a recipe program for MAC. Ilike the idea of "The living cookbook," but it won't run on MAC's without running Parallels. Any thoughts recommendations?

I would like it to be able to import from the internet, sort/search, and preferably calculate nutrition...(I've lost 100 lbs and that is important to me!)

Thanks for the help!

    I ran into the same problem until I found "Yum". It has a format similar to Living Cookbook and works great for me. The only drawback I have found is the inability to "subgroup", like a folder for 'ribs' under a folder for 'pork'.

    Good search function and can add pics to recipes.
  • search for YUM? Google??

    Thanks for the link, Judy. I didn't have access to all those choices when I found "YUM" a couple of years ago. The summary page is not completely correct on Yum features, but the other options look nice!

    I use The Recipe Manager
    It has done all I want. They recently introduced an iPad app that allows me to sync my recipes between the Mac and the iPad.

    The only drawback is the documentation is not the greatest, but any time I have had a question I email customer support and the have answered right away

    I use Master Cook, and there are alot of recipe websites and "mad's recipe emporium" is the best, he has whole cookbooks in the MC format. I am not sure if there is one for Mac but i did read that the YUM program can import the master cook format. There is alot out there that you won't have to type in yourself.

    a side note I recommend a cd or other removable backup. Had a computer crash and lost all that typing of all my favorite recipes, haven't had the heart to do it again.
