Hey Allrecipeeps! We hope your weekend was great and full of delicious, satisfying meals!

Today, the Allrecipes team would like to highlight a cool community feature that you might not 
have tried or used very much yet - sharing your Recipe Box with friends!

Sharing your own Recipe Box with friends via email is easy and fun:

1) First, find the URL to your public profile by logging into your Allrecipes account and clicking 
on your profile name in the upper right corner. Then, click the "Profile" link.

2) Copy & paste the web address of your Profile into an email and send it along to anyone you'd 
like to share with! Entice those friends a bit by including the names of a few great recipes you've 
saved in your Recipe Box under your public profile URL in the email!

When you are viewing another Allrecipes user's public profile, you will also see the option to 
"Add To Cooks I Like" under their profile picture, in a rectangular orange box. Click there to 
save that Cook to your own list, which can be accessed at anytime by visiting your "My 
Allrecipes" menu and clicking "Cooks I Like (view all/change)" on the right side of that page 
in blue.

This way, you can see what recipes they are saving and reviewing as well!

Who are some of your favorite Allrecipeeps to follow? What do you like so much about their Recipe 

Box contents or specific recipes they've saved and/or reviewed? 

Share your thoughts and feedback with us here!

Great addition! Thank you. Will we be able to sort our friends recipe box the way we can our own? That would make life so much easier since many of us have 1000+ recipes.

I don't get it. "Copy and paste a URL" isn't really a feature of this website. Once a person gets to another member's recipe box it's still a needle-in-a-haystack hunt to find a particular recipe or even category of recipes. It is only able to be sorted in a couple of ways and can't be searched. Are those changes in the works?

I just got the Premiere Issue of AP! I have to say I loved it. I went to bed reading it and couldn't put it down it was so good. I read it cover to cover. This magazine is definitely Grandma approved! I'm hopeful my grand-daughters will use all of the great recipes in it. At 70 years old, and cooking for 55 years, I think I've found a magazine my kids can use before I'm gone, instead of asking me before I die LOL and that's as good as it gets. They all love my southern cooking, but you all run a close match! Love you and your recipes, Great Grandma RUTHANN3

About Me
Allrecipes.com is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, Allrecipes.com is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at m.allrecipes.com.
My favorite things to cook
Everything and anything! Allrecipes community is an amazing resource for discovering all types of dishes and treats
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of them! How could anyone choose? All year long our community is cooking and celebrating seasonal holidays and special family occasions. Even the dinners we all have to get on the table every night can be a cherished tradition—or will seem so once the kids are grown.
My cooking triumphs
The millions of recipe choices, the tips and advice, the support and encouragement to try new things or rediscover old favorites make using this site a constant joy.
My cooking tragedies
Who doesn’t have these? Too many to tell really, but from each disaster there’s something to learn and laugh about. Cooking is meant to be an adventure!
