Recipe Writing

I am guessing Allrecipes does not take recipe submissions anymore since there are so many? Anyway I don't see where you can do that if you still can? But what I am looking for is a place to write my recipes and keep track of them?  I am wondering do I have to do that here in my blog? I would love a "cookbook" section where we can keep our recipes and when we have a lot of them print it out in book form.

Hope you all are having a great Summer, been slow to start here in MA but it is still beautiful. Gonna be cooking some great stuff this weekend and hope to post notes and pics.

Talk soon,

You can add your own recipes to your recipe box. In your recipe box, near the top there's an Add link and then choose Personal Recipe, and you can write up as many of those as you want. You can also submit them to AR for publishing online but it could take them days, months, years or never to review them and give you an accept or reject.

Sue - if you go to your recipe box you can create a personal recipe - then either submit it to AR or just keep it as a personal recipe. I started a folder within my recipe box just for personal recipes. It makes them easy to find. Within each folder you can create sub folders and sort your personal recipes into different catagories.

Hi Susan! You asked about where you can submit recipes to AR. Just go to the tab at the top of this page where it says 'myallrecipes' on that tab and then you will see your profile box on the upper right side of the page. At the bottom of that profile box you will see where it says 'submitting recipes' on that and it will bring you to the recipe submission form. I hope this helps you!

About Me
Hi, I love to cook and started cooking when I was 12 years old. I learned by watching my Mother and self teaching. I collect cookbooks but my collection is pretty much decorative since discovering Allrecipes! My husband and I love to garden and have a 1 acre veggie garden through which we grow produce for community food programs/families in need. I love to can and preserve our harvest. My specialty is baking and impromptu meals.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, comfort food, veggie dishes, pies, canning/preserving. I'll try any recipe once.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making a huge spread for Thanksgiving, Turkey of course with traditional trimmins. And an even bigger one for Christmas with traditional and "new" recipes. I try to make at least 3 new cookies for Christmas that I have never made before.
My cooking triumphs
My strawberry jam, apple butter and orange marmalade ALL took 1st place at this years county fair. Orange marmalade also took Best of Fair!
My cooking tragedies
Dropping an entire frosted cake! And..have a "beer can" chicken on the grill fly like a rocket across the backyard! The combination of alcohol, heat and opening a grill lid suddenly can cause danger, beware! My dog thought it was a very cool sight though.
