It would be nice if I could somehow send the recipe to my email address. That way I could just print out the copy plus I could
put it in my own (email address) Recipe file. so if I lost the recipe or it got damaged or something spilled on it, I could easiely replace it. (maybe there is a way and I just do not know how to do it, I am not real great on the computer.

There is a way to email recipes! Click on the green “share this” button under the instructions. A window will pop up with a button in the lower to share by email. You then choose how you want to email it and you can send it to yourself. There’s also a print button at the top of the recipe under the picture.

You might also want to sign up for a recipe box. If you click on “save recipe” under the picture, you’ll see an option to sign up for a recipe box you can use not only to save recipes from our blog, but from other sites as well. very handy!
