Tried and True Recipes - can we specify?

It was suggested to me that when we post a recipe if it's one we have tried just somewhere in there mentioned "tried and true". I think it's a good idea too.


if you haven't tried it but want to share it post it. That's the only way we can build our recipe files. I find recipes all the time that I want to share with everyone.

Thanks!

I agree. Altho it's interesting to see recipes others have discovered or want to share that they have never tried, I prefer the ones people have actually made themselves, especially when they can point out problems and/or other tips based on their actual experience.

I will still post recipes I haven't tried - I've got to share all the great stuff I find!!! I'm definately not steering anyone away from that - I want to see them ALL!!

I think this is a great idea! it is sort of like when you used to go into the neighborhood video store (before Blockbuster took over) and there was a wall or a shelf with the employees picks. You got to know which employee had similar tastes as you. Same thing here, just with food :)

Sounds like a great idea to me.

We can just type ( TNT) after the name of the recipe.
That's what we do on my other site.

Long long time ago, I bought a site at myfamily.com and started a cooking ring in the Seattle area. There's only 6 of us that post a lot now.. but, there used to be quite a few.

The loss of my "members" is what made me look for you guys.
I love the friends I've made on the other site but, with such a small number of posters ( my friend LeeAnn is one of them) I really needed to find somewhere else to hang out. Thanks again for opening your doors to me
I love it here!!!
