You can print ANY or ALL recipes from HungryMe for Mac.

1.  If all the recipes that you desire to print share some Category, select that Category.  Otherwise select  ‘Browse All’.

2. Select Main Menu: File -> Print…  or enter ‘⌘ + P’ to display the print dialog.

3. Click the ‘All’ button, if desired; else select the desired recipes for printing.

4. Click the ‘Print’ button to display a second dialog which allows you to send the print job  either to a PDF file or to a printer.

A comment/complaint by KayetBee was left on the App Store for HungryMe

I want to make clear that both of the two complaints above are NO LONGER valid.

  1. Full PDF printing has since been added to the already existing paper printing support.
  2. Recipe Photos are now fully supported using drag and drop.

Tomato Soup

What’s better than fresh, creamy tomato soup on a Sunday night? Ground cloves add the flavor we all remember as kids. Just go very easy, as it is a strong spice.
Yield: Makes 6 to 8 servings

ingredients
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoons flour
3 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon sugar
3 cups Fresh Vegetable Broth
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup half-and-half

preparation
1. Melt the butter with the oil over low heat in a pot.

2. Add the onion; wilt over low heat for 8 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic during the last 2 minutes, stirring. Sprinkle with flour and cook 3 minutes longer, stirring.

3. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cover; cook over medium-low heat for 30 minutes. Season with cloves, salt, and pepper. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

4. Puree the soup in a food processor. Pour through a strainer into a pot. Stir in the half-and-half.

5. Warm the soup before serving.
