We used to use MacGourmet but switched to Paprika. Can't say enough good about Paprika.
Don't remember where the files were stored with MacGourmet, but almost certain there was no cloud sync.

I believe most of us (if not all) would agree the idealized communist system is a great idea. Unfortunately, in any sizeable group there will always be bullies and leeches to screw things up.

I subscribed to a mag like that . . . back in my Atari 800 days. Can't remember the name of it though. :P
