    I HATE that I can't save the recipe in my recipe box.

    Pat, why can't you save it? By "pinching" it, it saves it, but I was also confused until I clicked on the tab marked "my kitchen", then my recipes were all safely preserved in there, as was any recipe I'd "pinched". I kid of like the pinching process because I'm getting my daughter involved in JAP, and this is an easy way to send recipes her way.
