"Recipe Cards" on the forum?

Is there anyway on this forum that we can have "recipe cards" individually, like PMs? I guess I'm asking because I often see a very good recipe posted on here, but my options for saving it are to copy it out in long hand (I don't have a printer), copy it into Notebook, or PM it to myself (this one works the best, but I have no way to really organize the recipes).

I thought if we had a way to get a feature like Allrecipes has, where we can save (or copy and paste) the recipes we run across, it would be a great timesaver and we wouldn't have to go through thread after thread looking for a particular recipe we wanted.

hmmm... I copy and paste to WordPad and save to my recipe files, which are divided into groups the way its easiest for me... I do that with each recipe I find in the blogs I follow..

Bookmarks are iffy, especially if it's a blog. I've lost several that I didn't copy and paste because people took down their blogs/let them lapse.

I really like an app on my iPad called "The Recipe Box" (don't forget the "the"). I just copy from DC and paste into TRB. You can catagorize and format it any way you want, very easy.

True, true med.
But I mean from DC I haven't lost anything ...
and as Andy says, copy&paste to MS Word works too
(or Google Docs, I use both formats)

Just copy, paste, and keep ypur own file on your desktop.

What makes DC relatively unique (there are just a few others that are similar) is that it is more of a community of wider discussion, rather than a straight up recipe and technique site.

Sounds like a plan, BT, but I like to have my recipes all together so I can see them. I do have a bunch of them bookmarked, though, and I'm always afraid I'll not have my computer some day and lose those. I am copying them over to recipe cards, but it goes slowly.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It would be nice to incorporate the personal database type feature of other strictly recipe sites so as to have them available from the place you remember them from.
