  1. Hi Kalyn! I cannot tell you how much I love your website! It’s really the only one I use when I’m looking for recipes. The only thing that would make it better is to have an option on your website for users to create a recipe list, similar to AllRecipes.com. That would be fantastic. Anyway, thanks for all you do!

    • Thanks Pat; so glad you are enjoying the recipes. I recommend using Pinterest to save recipes you want to make, I’m afraid I’ll never be able to offer the same features as AllRecipes.com which has a huge team of technology people.

    • Hi Kalyn! I would like to how much I agree with Pat Sawyer’s post.  You’re receipts are simply fantastic!

      • Hi Shelly, glad you are enjoying the recipes! However I had to delete the reference for the site you’re referring to. Those kinds of sites are terrible for food bloggers. They let people save a recipe in a format that can be also seen and saved by other people. Therefore there is no need to go to the bloggers site and get the recipe (and we don’t get paid for our work unless people visit the site.) And those sites sometimes come up in Google search above the original source of the recipe.

        I don’t mean to lecture you; I’m sure you didn’t know this. But I would never be able to allow a recommendation on my site for that service.
