I use pinterest too. It’s great and it’s really easy to use. Most of the recipes I’ve found link to the recipe and not just the picture.

I usually print and keep in a three ring notebook, so I can take into the kitchen with me, add handwritten notes and comments.

I pin them on pinterest when I find them. Then when I’m ready to use them I print them out and put them in a binder. I’m basically making my own cookbook that way.

If the only problem with using word for you was that you can’t access it on multiple computers, you could try pasting into a google doc instead. You can access google docs from any computer with an internet connection.

You can even organize different pin boards depending on the kind of recipes! E.g. Desserts, Holiday, Dinner, Breakfast etc.

The pins are great because when you go back you see what each item looks like (easy and quick identification) and they do link right back to the original web page with the full recipes.

If you want, you can try searching on the main Pinterest page for a type of recipe to see examples of other people’s pins, then click on an image to see how it links back to the recipe.

I use MS word and dropbox. Dropbox is an app you can download on computers, phones, ipads and tablets.  It will store any photos or documents.  I like it because I can save a recipe on my computer as a word document, and when I go grocery shopping I can use my cell phone to pull it up and check the ingredients.  It also automatically updates your documents across all your devices- so if you try a recipe and put a note on it about adding something while on your phone, when you pull it up on the computer its there for you to see.  I also keep all my pictures, school work and other documents on it.

I like Pinterest but I have found problems with links disappearing.  Either the website the pin goes to doesn’t have the recipe or whatever anymore, or the link directs to just the website and you have to go searching for it.  So I”ll Pin recipes for ideas but if it’s something I mkae and like, I’ll copy them into word and then I have all my recipes organized in folders on my computer, plus I have a backup of all of them on Google Docs.
