Pampered Chef: Reformatted DCB recipe book

    Thanks so much to the person who put together the initial DCB recipes (I couldn't find the thread to figure out who you were - sorry!)
    I have taken this file and formatted it some more... divided the recipes into: Main Dishes - Microwave; Main Dishes - Oven; Desserts - Microwave and Oven.

    I also managed to cut it down from 38 to 28 pages (I need to print it out for some guests who don't 'do' computers, so was hoping to save a bit of paper!)

    And I tried to make the formatting a bit more consistent...

    Feel free to use if you find this helpful! I will post it in word and pdf.

    The original person was cmwinter and she did put a lot of work into it, I'm sure that she will be happy to see people still enjoying it and not abusing it! :)

    Yes, the person who originally posted it REMOVED HER LINK because of the person who took it & was selling it on eBay. You may want to check with her to see if it's okay to have it posted again. ;)

    :confused:???:confused:

    I'm totally against Ebay selling - but I know that it's going to happen...and these recipes are common property really - why would we need to check on whether they can be posted?



    Oh - but thanks for the reformatting and cutting down in size! I love it!

    I'm glad the rest of you like it...
    I've learned SO much from this forum, that if I can 'give back' in some small way, I'm thrilled...
    Thanks to cmwinter for all her work in compiling this, which took a huge amount of effort - it's a super resource, even for my own cooking!!!
    And now that I have the DCB myself, am using it all the time, and thus selling it fairly often, I love being able to tell people that I will give them a 'recipe booklet' that they can use.
    I actually just had some copies at coil-bound at our office supply store (worked out to $4/booklet), and will be picking those up tomorrow. I thought that made more sense than having my printer do all those copies...

    Did you have these printed double-sided or single-sided?

    Her name is Carol and her whole thing is cwinter474 (I knew there was more to it, just couldn't remember, so had to look it up, I was typing cmwinter, so I had it totally screwed up)...

    I put the file together...... your welcome.

    I also just reposted it in its origanal form. Since it was here again anyways.

    I'm sure yours is better. Mine is longer as I tryed to end the recipe on a page, so that I could add on with out much trouble.

    I had these booklets printed double-sided (I hate wasting paper!)
    I think next though I'll just have them photocopied and put them into duotangs for a cheaper version... my PC expenses are a bit too high overall right now, and a duotang version of the cookbook should work just as well as a nicely coil-bound one.

    We always used these in school, but maybe you have a different name for them! :) According to Wikipedia, duotangs are paper folders made of harder cardstock paper with flat metal teeth.
    Here's what one looks like (they usually don't have a pocket though).
    What would you call this??
