Is there a recipe file button somewhere that permits you to save recipes you find on this site to a file? Most recipe sites have this function and I find it quite useful. I like to save them since most of the time I lack an ingredient or two to try out a new recipe right away.

We are currently working on some new features that will include the ability to save recipes. So that is something to look forward to.

Can we also have a way to delete posts from our profile page? I mainly ask this because on weekends we at times have profanity being posted.

There is a box next to the thumbs up or down that is SHARE. You can email the recipe, print it or share it on Twitter or FaceBook. There is not a function in the section that will allow you to save it as a file. You could cut and paste it into a document and then save it in your computer that way. Try emailing it to yourself and see if it emails as a file or as html.

It would be cool if you could have a "my stuff" tab in your profile that you could save discussions, recipes, etc to.

Thanks Gabby! I was just saving them to Favorites-was too lazy to do a little research and figure that out on my own! D'oh…

Howdy rach­mani­noff­sgf and WELCOME to DC!

You can save the recipe in 2 ways:

#1, In internet explorer, you go to the recipe you want to save, and click "file" in IE menu. In the drop down box, go down to "save as" and click it. A dialog box opens asking where you want to save it to. Either to your hard drive or a folder on the hard drive (recommend this make a separate folder for DC recipes — to place them in) or you could put it on a "thumb drive" or a CD-RW inserted into the CD burner. (If it is merely a CD-R you'll only be allowed 1 download on that disc). When you have selected where you want the recipe to be saved — then click save in the dialog box


#2 In internet explorer, you go to the recipe you want to save, and click "file" in IE menu. In the drop down box, go down to "print" and click it. (select "print preview" to see what you're printing, then select "print" ) click print, and let the printer print it out for you. That way you have the ingredients already printed for your shopping trip.

In other browsers I wouldn't know. The computer I am on is a shared computer and it won't let me download the other browsers. I would GUESS they operate in a similar fashion.

Praying you have success with this.
