In Response to Re: Tracking cookie plates.:
nikki p thanks for the offer but i can explain it maybe like this on the old site they had a section for swapped recipes where you could enter the name of a recipe and it would come up---------------------also you could enter your name and all of the "swapped recipes" that you had entered came up-------------also the name of any other baker and their recipes also would show up they tell me to enter --------"community classics"----and all of the swapped recipes will be there---------but when i do that a get a little over 500 entries in no kind of order ---you just have to wade through them- and i just don't believe that there are not many thousands of recipes entered from before why bother to enter any now because as far as i can determine there is no way to search for these either---------------that's why so many people are posting recipes repeatedly in this forum----------

I know the previous way was easier to search for specific things. I loved to put in an item and search recipes that called for that particular ingredient.
I was wondering if there was a specific recipe that you were looking for that I/we could help you find. I know when I have searched for a recipe I have to put in the Name exactly the way it was entered or it does not come up. I thought I had "lost" recipes that way until I re worded the recipe title.
So if there is anything I can help you look for let me know I can spend a bit of time looking for you.
I also found that some of the recipes I had saved from the "old site" were made "private" by the person that had contributed it and were no longer available.
