I wouldn't mind seeing this, either. I've looked for a while at trying
to input my wife's recipes into something for her that would be
printable/exportable into perhaps a small binder or card box or
something. I've played around with gourmet with varying success but
not been entirely happy. It's been buggy for me when it comes to
printing.[1] At the very least, someone can try it out for it's
converting/unit suggestions, as they are fantastic.

Most here may work directly from org, but if recipes *are*
implemented, an exporter or two for half-page or index card sizes
would be *phenomenal.*
