    finding my saved recipes

    The only way I can find my saved recipes is to go into a recipe and click on "save to cookbook". After it is saved I can "view cookbook". I just think there has to be another way to view my saved recipes.
    Thanks!

    Since you are logged into the forum, Just look at the upper right hand corner at the top of the website. You should see your account name and the word "inbox" just below the Facebook and twitter icons. Click on your name. That will bring you to your account page. Then just click the recipes tab.

    Or hover your cursor over the blue box to the right of your icon. A box will open with your personal stuff. Your cookbooks will be listed in the left hand column. Going to the cookbooks tab on your profile page will only get you to your public cookbooks.

    The simplest way, although not the cheapest, to find recipes is to keep them in a database program such as Filemaker Pro. (It also works for cataloging any other files you need to access quickly and easily. For example I have an extensive record collection which includes many thousands of entries).

    The program comes with a tutorial that walks you through the steps required to customize your database. The fields I include are:
    • Name (of recipe)
    • Category (entree, soup, salad, starch, vegetable, sauce, marinade, etc.).
    • The specific source of the recipe, including a URL if you have one.
    • The date of the source, if available, so you can go back to the newspaper or magazine it came from.
    • Ingredients
    • Method
    • Don't forget to add a "comments" or "notes" field. I'd also recommend, but haven't put them in myself, "amount or servings" and "ethnicity" fields. It takes a bit of time to set up, especially if you have a large selection of recipes but you can do it a little at a time. It's worth the effort and the time because, once it's operational, you can look up a recipe by any of the fields you've included.
