I have a question re: customizing recipes. I made the recipe inside & reviewed it. Then I customized it to my preference. When I email the customized recipe, my changes do not show.

Spinach and Tortellini Salad

Submitted by: lvich 
This salad is a snap to make and looks and tastes very Italian. Cheese tortellini are cooked al dente and tossed with spinach, Parmesan cheese, cherry tomatoes, sliced black olives, and a prepared Italian dressing. Great barbecue salad.

Also, when you customize, your name appears as if you submitted it (in your recipe box) - I don't like that feature. Feels like "stealing" recipes...

I see what you mean. You could change the actual ingredients since the "what I changed" doesn't email. The link to the original gives credit but you're not the first that I've seen that wished it didn't appear as "your" recipe.

by the way, can I ask how things went at the vet or should I not?

Hi. linda! Thanks, Gus is fine and medicated. Vet thinks it's a sprain. On 2 scripts. Vet has seen 5 cases this week. If Gus had broken anything, he would not put ANY weight on his leg. Just have to watch for improvement. Thanks for asking...

I haven't done it since I'm still on the amateur circuit, but seems like it should work. I'll go try another custom email and see.

Glad Gus isn't more serious. Hopefully he mends quickly!

Thanks. Gus is not a good patient. LOL. Going to check out recipe you mailed to see what happens to me...

Okay - I saw the footnotes. Let me see if I can make changes there...
