Hi, Everybody, I am finally ready to start this project. We never got any response from Keri, who collected the first batch of recipes, so those are lost.
Ok, I have taken the 112 recipes submitted to Abbey in the later part of last year and reformatted them. They are importable by many recipe programs in MealMaster or MasterCook format. Just let me know which type.
For those that don't know, MealMaster is a newsgroup standard format used on the Internet for probably 20 years or so. There are tens of thousands of recipes on the Internet in this format. Most recipe programs, if they import, will import this format. Check your program's help file for Import.
The recipes can also be given to you in Word/WordPerfect, plain text, or .rtf (the later two can then be opened by nearly any wordprocessor program or copied into your own database). I can send then as an attachment to an email, or within the body as plain text.
If you don't have a program, and want a fairly good free one, I have done some testing and looking. I wanted one that was either free or cheap, and could import. I found one that is fair, and free. It does still have some bugs in it, but nothing untolerable, I don't think. If there is a need, I will see what I can find for the MAC system, but I did only look for PC compatability.
The program I am working with is called Recipe Center and has just been updated to version 5.2.2
I will probably send out files of recipes once a week, after I get started, if that sounds good to everybody else. If you want them, you will need to PM your email addy to me.
I will go back thru the forums and find topics that have recipes in them, and ask posters for permission to include their recipes in the database.
If you submitted recipes to Abby last year, and would like to make sure your name is put on your recipe, please let me know. I would personally like to see names on them :)
If you are submitting a recipe that is directly quoted from a magazine or cookbook, please give credit where credit is due. If you've altered it, it is then yours and you should give yourself credit.
If you've submitted a recipe that is currently in a topic on the forums somewhere now, you do not need to resubmit it here, send me a PM and I'll go get it, just give me permission and the name of the topic.
If I've forgotten to mention or include anything here, please let me know.

Fruits & Nuts = all fruit & nut dishes - Blueberry, Blackberry, Cherry, Figs, Kiwi, Peach, Pineapple, Wtermelon, Hazelnut, Pistachio, Rice, Grains, Fruit Salads
Rice, Grains, Pastas & Noodles = Rice & Grains, Pastas & Noodles
*Condiments & Sauces = Dips & Spreads, Dressings, Garnishes, Jams & Jellies, Marinades, Preserves, Sauces, Herb & Spice Mixes, Toppings
Breakfast, Brunch, Cheese, Dairy, & Eggs = Cereals, Cheese, Dairy, Eggs, Pancakes, & Waffles
Vegetable that include meat = those that are not vegan/vegetarian, vegetable Salads
Dishes = Casseroles, One-dish Meals, Quiches & Souffles, Soups, Stews,
*Breads & Such = Breads (other than machine recipes, which have a topic), Muffins & Biscuits, Stuffings

Anybody know where these should go? Baby Foods, Chutneys, Curries

Btw, nobody is "late" for getting these recipes yet. I won't send out the first batch until at least the 14th. And there will be additional sends so don't worry :)

Recipe index from the last 45 days postings. (I'm not done, but this is what I have so far. If you see yours, please PM me with permission to use it.) Bolded titles = permission to include in cookbook

Paige, I can send you the file I have, and you can look thru them to see if any are yours. Send me a PM with your email and I'll send it to you. Just let me know what format(s) you want it in.
Nora, thanks! I'll include it!
I think what I will do, Bernie, is post the topics that I pull recipes from, that way if I miss a topic that has recipes, the posters can point me to them. There may be some really long topics that I will not go thru page by page. I will also post a list of the recipes that I have found so that members know their recipe has been found. I'll mark those I have permission to distribute, and remove those that don't want them included.
If anyone thinks of any other things I ought to do, please be sure to let me know.
I remember the oreo truffles, Nora, I won't miss it hahaha
Nora, *lol* too funny. I made those and gave them to a friend, she still has them. She doles them out now and then as a treat. Me, I would just mow them all in a day or two.
Thanks again Sherry for doing this. What a gal!

I got you, Kathy! There are several subjects already started where you can post some of your own favorites, or if you have a favorite that's not been started, go for it! The more the better all our kitchens will be :)
You are an angel for doing this. I wish I could help out, but my time online is very limited lately. Please feel free to use my Potato soup recipe in the Dinner in 30 minutes or less thread. I will submit some more to you as I can find the time. I actually think Friday night I might have an hour or so where I will be at home. I will try to then. When Ball (baseball, soccer & softball) is over I will check with you to see if there is anything you need help with then.
I can't wait to get this cookbook. I have tried several recipes from other PBS members. They were all great! It will be very helpful to have a trusted, these are all good, source to go to for Dinner ideas.
I think posting about this in the Thoughts Forum is a good idea. Just a suggestion: After you get things organized, why don't you post a section that you need more recipes in, like Appetizers, Desserts, etc. (If you need to)
Great ideas, Terri, I was thinking too of posting the categories that don't have much or any in them at some point.
Do you have a recipe program? I'm really liking the Recipe Center. It has it's bugs, but so do most softwares hahahahaha
Thanks for the OK on your recipes, and no biggie on the time thingie, I just thought if there was someone out there like me with a ton of time on their hands they might like to help :)
What a great idea, I want to share. This has been a great breakfast recipe for the weekends spent with family and friends at the lake. Put it together the day before and just pop it in the oven on a lazy Sunday morning.
Egg Flop`e from the kitchen of Mama Murf
Optional Topping: 3 Tbs butter
Line a greased 9x13 casserole dish with bread. Layer cheese slices over bread. Mix together eggs, milk, salt, pepper and ground mustard. Top cheese layer with meat and veggies and pour egg mixture over top. Cover and refrigerate over night. Topping: mix crumbs with melted butter and sprinkle over top. Bake @ 350* untill topping is golden brown and cheese is melted, approx. 45-50 min

Here are some "Types of Dish" categories. If you have one or more recipes in any of these, and if there is not a category already started where your recipe fits, start one for that category.
