    FYI-When I have to click through the arrows and wait for them to down load the recipes , I loose interest. It takes 45 seconds per recipe. I have cable which is fast. I got through 15 and quit.

      Hi Judy, there are no recipes, these are from other bloggers that link up. The links are above the photo. It will state the title of the recipe and the name of the blog website. Example – Glazed lemon Sugar Cookies – Swanky Recipes (then photo).
      Also, thanks for letting us know. We’ve had a very large increase in traffic and sometimes the website can slow down when there are hundreds and hundreds using it, we’ll try to fix it! Thanks
