I've asked before, but can not find your response. I have a very old cookbook program on a very old computer. Many of my computer experts have tried to transfer this program to a cd, flash drive and it is not possible.
I need a couple of cookbook programs that I could buy and manually input each of my recipes on a new system. I would like a program that I can print my recipes and maybe someday have a cookbook printed. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Popcorn Ball Recipes for Polly
Here are popcorn ball recipes for Polly in Denver. I have found that you can use almost any mini candy in a recipes, such as gumdrops, jellybeans, red hots. Dried fruit, chocolate covered raisins, chocolate covered nuts, coconut and colored miniature marshmallows are also great option. Making mini balls instead of full size ones is a great idea for the holidays, when there are so many treats to try.
