Love these recipes! I've been saving some of the recipes in a folder for my daughter. How can I now share this folder with her?

the only way i know how is to share your username and password for this site with her...

Or you can email her each recipe!

I just found that option--but I have 22 of them in a older for her. Was hoping to send all at one time.

There are multiple ways, and I’ll provide a couple not yet identified and others may offer more. Unfortunately, you can’t just copy the folder, and have it retain the content within it. Since the number of recipes are not known, one method may be better than another depending on the number involved. ** Create an account for your daughter using her Email address and a password, and after filling it with your recipes, turn it over to her. She can choose to change her password if wanting to. ** Open the folder your wanting to replicate, and highlight, copy & paste each page to a word document . . . send the word document to her as an email attachment . . . this word doc will not format well for permanent use, but will allow her to click on the link, and open each recipe which can then be saved to her account if she becomes a member or she could save each and every recipe to a word doc (or you could do this for her). **

It's easy to just make an account that can be shared by both of you. If you don't want to just give her your password for your box, you'll need a separate e-mail address and password that the two of you share to set up an account. Then make yourself a "Cooks I like" and you'll have access to your recipes and can easily add them to your joint account. I would suggest saving them to folders as you do this. If she prefers a totally separate account, she can save recipes from your box simply by making you one of her "Cooks I like".

I do this with my DD and step-DD; it makes it easy to share recipes without wading through the thousands of recipes in my RB. DD likes having access to recipes from her childhood, and I enjoy the great recipes that they share with me. I don't know if they have separate accounts (I suspect they do) but enjoy being able to share recipes easily. We only put tried, true, and loved recipes in that account.
