In Response to Re: swapped recipes:
NIKKI P apparently you were not a member very long when they made all the changes in fact, i rarely see anyone i knew on the old site so i wonder why they quit i have put community classics in many times and only get a limited nuumber of results (under 400) and they are not in any kind of order while anyone that was faniliar with the site before can tell you ----there were many thousands of recipes in the "swapped recipes files" on this version of the site you can't even put in the name of a nestle's recipe and have it come up all by itself-------------it is like a game of hide and seek--------and i really don't like it------------so i only come to the forums when i visit before they had a section for nestle recipes and you could type the name of any of their recipes ------------they had another section for swapped recipes and if you knew the name of the recipe you wanted it would come up or if you simply typed -----banana bread'-------all swapped recipes for banana bread would be listed------but not banana pudding--------------you could also enter a bakers last name and all of the recipes under that last name came up and i know that you and others have offered to search for my recipes and i appreciate your willingness but the vbb people couldn't find most of them--------------------simply because only a few of those recipes have been moved to the new format also you can't talk to them because it's like i'm speaking another language and they don't understand what i'm asking

Nellie, I had been a member for quite some time but the old method of posting sort of intimidated me...why I don't know but I took advantage of the changes to begin posting as I figured everyone else would be as "confused" and new at it as I was.
I did love looking at the recipes and I loved searching for them and posting as well.
I will admit it was easier to find recipes the old way. I loved the way you could put in a product and search for recipes using that particular product. Yes I wish that feature would be brought back. But as my Grandmother used to say.."If wishes were horses beggars would ride" I try not to look back on something that I can not change but to go forward and make the best of what I have.
By the way if you want to look at my (or anyone else's) recipe box and see the recipes I have posted or saved click on my name by my picture. You will be taken to my page then click on recipe box on the left hand side. You will see all the ones I have submitted and the ones I have saved.
