:nana: hey guys, just wanted to say hello, and to set up a challenge. I have a Dell computer with 2 gig of memory and 2 terrabytes of hard drive space. that I have set forth on a mission to try and choke it full of recipes. so far I have 350,000 and I could use a little help . I love collecting and sharing recipes. I use living cookbook 11 and mastercook to import and export my cookbooks. some of them are very large unfortunately mastercook will only allow you to put 12,000 recipes per book and it does not look for duplicate recipes so if you want some be warned. so, who’s up for the challenge ? can we choke this computer ? or not :hammer:
ok here’s one thats really good from a yahoo groups friend Beth Layman a very talented lady she sent it to me and I tried it found it delicious and ate the whole pot. now it’s your turn:
