  1. I remember when we got such short notice when that “other” recipe saving site shut down. This is so much better! Thank you for thinking of us. Still praying for Sweetie’s safety. God knows where she is, and if it’s in His plan, will bring her back to you.

    1. YES! They really did us wrong on how that was handled. I’m thrilled to have a bigger and better option now. Thank you so much. And I so appreciate your prayers. We are still just sick over missing her but I am trusting that God is looking after her and we are doing the best we can on our end as well. Your words are a great comfort, thank you.

  2. This is amazing!!! I’ve been wishing we could save recipes! and the feature that tells you the ingredients at a glance is so wonderful! You can tell right away if you have the stuff and what you will need! YES!!!! I live in Decatur and have been following you for a long time! I love your stories and recipes! I feel like you are the best southern cook since my Grandmother! Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much Mary!!! I’m glad you are excited, too! There are so many options with Yummly that people have asked for but I just haven’t been able to make happen so this is a great deal for all of us! You are so sweet, thank you for your kindness!!!

  3. Christy,
    My heart actually hurt when I read about Sweety being lost. My prayer is that she will be found safe and returned to you soon. Makes me hold my little Chico close.
    I am excited about being able to save recipes in a Recipe Box. This is so very convenient.
    Have a blessed week.
