I did that. I collected recipes and put them in the plastic page savers only to have one of my girlfriend borrow my book and then turned around and lent it to another person who said sh would make copies for my girlfriend.  Her house burned and so did that book so now when someone wants a recipe I email it to them and I still have my copy.  I went out and got a bunch of stuff for the girl whose house burnt and she cried when she found out it was my book and it was only a loaner.  I dried her tears with her new dish towels and got her email so she would get recipes from me and only needed to print out the ones she wanted to give away.  Other that than she has an online cookbook collection just like mine.  I would advise everyone to save their online book collection to a back up external hard drive.

Welcome Amy K...I wish I saw your post sooner!  Take pretzel rings and lay them on a well greased cookie sheet.  Take the foil off Hershey kisses and place one on each pretzel ring.  Bake at 250* for about 3 minutes and remove pan from oven.  Take a M&M and put in the center of the Hershey Kiss and push down a little so the kiss fills the center of the ring.  Then refrigerate until chocolate hardens. 

These are great to do for all the holidays, Christmas - red and green M&M's, Valentine's day - red and pink M&M's, Easter -  pink and white M&M's, etc.  Children will love to make them and of course it's more fun eating them!
