      1. I was so happy to find this site. However, It will not allow me to copy & paste these recipes & I'm not bringing my laptop into my kitchen to use them. I don't eat, drink OR cook around my computer. There are pop-ups continuously. I also do not see an option to print. So I'm left thinking "what good is it to find these great recipes & not be able to use them?" Any suggestions?

        Hmm, I'm not sure why you are unable to copy & paste, as that feature has not been disabled on the site. To copy & paste a recipe, simply highlight the section you want to save with your mouse, press Ctrl + C (at the same Time), open up a notepad and hit Ctrl+p (at the same time) and the recipe will copy for you.

        Alternatively, there is a "Print Friendly" button on every single page directly above the recipe, underneath the title. The print friendly button allows you to choose which parts of the recipe you want to print, you can include or exclude items, such as directions or photos.

        As for any "pop ups"- you should only be seeing 1 ad per 24 hours,if you're seeing more than that, it means that your computer is not accepting "cookies". A "cookie" is placed on your computer when you visit a site to let the site "remember you" so that they don't overload you with ads. Here is a link to help you learn how to change your cookie settings.
