    2. I do remember seeing that on the board! I never got over there to see what all they had for recipes-I was too busy copying in Cook's Corner. So many wonderful recipes went POOF when they pulled the plug.... :(

    3. I never went over there either but like you when the board was closing I copied as many as I could.

      You did a better job then I did- mine are saved in places I don't even remember now!

    4. Ohhhh don't you worry girlfriend....I've been on a search for some of the ones I saved too--and changing computers makes the search even more fun!

      You know, one would think with all the cookbooks I have here I wouldn't care about saved recipes.....not so. I can NEVER have too many recipes in my arsenal. One of these days I'll have them all organized too....

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH............
