There is a Firefox plug-in called Recipefox. I use it in conjunction with MasterCook to automatically capture recipes and import them into MasterCook. For websites that don't work in Recipefox (and many don't, but not enough to keep me from using it), it has a cut and paste feature that automates the pasting into the proper fields in the MasterCook database.

I absolutely could not live without it.

Thanks so much everyone. Not only did Kayelle's method work, but Joesfolks answered me from the thread I couldn't find and told me to copy using CNTL C and paste using CNTL V. I knew about that but thought it was the same as using the right click. It worked too without (sorry, Kayelle XOXOX) having to email it.

I wrote both methods on an index card and if I can just remember to remember where I put it when I get stuck again I'll be OK. (Where's that White-Out, Kayelle :) it's funny because when I'm writing long hand I'm often wishing I still had some!!)

Zhizara, That was me, but you caught me this morning before I woke up...yes, I was posting asleep...

Most, not all, sites have a link such as "Printer Friendly"...of course I can't find one right now. These links take away all the ads, etc and they are usually black and white. They also remove the table format most of the time. Copy and paste from there if you are able to.

Hope that helps...back into my coma...

Just for kicks, see if you can cut and paste the recipe from the email to WORKS so that it's editable.
I tried it yesterday. Nope! I finally just had to change the font to a readable one (it is editable in email form), and print the email. At least now I have a hard copy to remind me of the recipe, and where I can make notes of changes or ideas for add-ins.
