Adding recipes from a digital cookbook to a digital recipe universe: how to? (iOS 10 filter)

I have most of the recipes I want to try in Kindle cookbooks, but keeping track of them while juggling the usual responsibilities of mom + full-time geek + wife + pet herder is proving beyond my capabilities. I'm a visual organizer, so having everything available in one place will allow me to plan and cook meals more efficiently.
Thing is, all the software I've tried so far (well, I tried Sous Chef) can't import recipes from Kindle books. MacGourmet doesn't appear to be able to do it either, judging from their FAQs and support fora. They'll import from text, but the text that ends up in their importer doesn't work like a text editor; when you select a block of text, it looks like the importer thinks the text on the screen is an image so you are scraping text from an image rather than selecting lines that wrap.
Where can I find Mac software that can import from Kindle books? Anyone have any luck doing this? I don't mind paying $50 for MacGourmet if someone here in the Hive Mind can vouch for it working properly. (I trust y'all infinitely more than some website dedicated to sales.)
