Google sometimes sends me to cooks.com for recipes. I thought I used to be able to copy and paste their recipes, but haven't been able to do so recently. Is it just me?

That is odd, isn't it? The only thing I can think of to do is to email the recipe to yourself and then copy and paste from the email. The email option is usually on the recipe page somewhere. It's an extra step but effective.

That is odd. I couldn't even get it to pull up the Printer Friendly option. But I did go up to File, then Print Preview. It shows up then.

my life: thanks for the tip. That's what I just did...what a pain! I won't be using that site too much. Frown I guess our friends here will have to "step up" so I don't have to go there! Smile

Cooks.com is a paid site, so if you aren't a member you can't cut and paste. However, if there is a recipe of theirs you want, google the title and I have had success grabbing it that way.
Sometimes if the recipe was featured on a recent PBS show you can successfully print out the recipe without membership.
Good luck, as they are an excellent resource.
I don't think any of their offerings have ever failed me.

thanks Lurah. Googling is a good idea. I've done that for other recipes I see in the paper, mags, etc. so I don't have to cut them out.

Did they recently turn to a paid site? I thought I was able to cut and paste in the past. ????

You can also take a screen shot, and then paste that into something like Publisher, and then print it.

Or of course, copy the recipe by hand.

As Lurah said, it is a paid site, and they are safeguarding their content. Some of their recipes are available free for about three months if you take the magazine.
