March 1st is literally around the corner and the site will be open to the public and you no longer will be logging in to enjoy your recipes.
In the meantime, we are busy working in the background. One thing that is in question (on our end) is the FAVORITES FEATURE that allows you to compile a list of your favorite recipes on the site. We are not positive if this feature can or will remain on the site once the change over happens.
So… if YOUR favorite list is important to you, please copy and paste the links to your computer. Once I find out more information I will let you know! Have a wonderfully happy day! amie sue
