Is there any way to Tag my favourite recipes so that I can find them again.

The only way I can think of is to cut and paste them to notes or whatever recipe program you have in your computer. If  I see a recipe I like I'll  highlight the recipe and then copy it to my computer ( I am on a Mac system).

I used to always print mine out but I now have a mountain of recipes I have to wade through, not to mention those that have already found their way into my 'to do' file. If I think I will make something reasonably quickly, I still print them out but I have also started a book where I write down the recipe and the topic number so it is easy to browse the book and bring up the topic number on the forum when and if I get around to doing it.

JD - I suggested adding a 'save' button and having a cookbook folder like in taste.com.au and you told me a little while ago that forum thermomix was undergoing changes and to wait to see what happens. Just wondering if it's still on the horizon?

I did put that to MM Tasty but have not heard what his plans are yet.  He is a very busy man and we have to be patient with these things.

If that can be incorporated into the forum it would be great but, like most things, probably far easier said than done.  Keeping my fingers crossed that MM will have a chance to work on this some time when he gets the time.

I requested this function a couple of years ago. It wasn't possible then, don't know if anything's changed?  I was given the tip to email or clip to Evernote, which is what I now do.  And once we try it if it scores at least 4 out of 5 with the family it's entered into my mac gourmet program (another recommendation from someone on this forum :-). )

fundj, is that the evernote free app you are talking about? I have just downloaded it hoping it will help.

At the moment, I just keep adding to my favourites bar on my macbook under 'Thermomix' but it is growing and growing, and I have no way of recording whether I have tried the recipe or not, I am already starting to lose track!

What I have been doing is bookmarking my favorite recipes when I am doing my meal planning for the week.  After we try them out, if they are a "keeper" then they get copied on recipe note cards and put into my file.  The ones that we don't like so much, I delete the bookmark.  The file is growing!  :) :)  :)

I have two files on my iPad, recipes and favourite recipes, first they go into recipes and the ones that I make on a regular basis move into favourite recipes.  Mind you the favorites is growing daily  :D

This is a bit of an amateurish question, but how do you bookmark Chantimama - within the forum or on your browser?
