Here is my favorite recipe, which takes me back to childhood, my mama's  russian stroganoff. My mother passed when I was 15 1/2 of Juvenille Diabetes, I have many memories in the kitchen of her making healthy meals and desserts. So I am posting this recipe on My Recipe magic http://myrecipemagic.com/home/recipes which is a great recipe sharing community I have found! ♥

Here's some frequently asked questions:  ♥

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How long does it take to enter a recipe?
The first time I did it, it almost took me 10 minutes. However, after entering my 5th recipe, I can do it in about 5 minutes. ♥

2. How many recipes can you share?
As many as you like! Put all your recipes out there! ♥

3. How much money will you really make?
We are estimating that you will make about $3 per recipe per month (as long as you do a little promoting). So, if you put in 25 recipes, that is an extra $75 for you each month. The great thing is once you put a recipe into our database, you will make money on it for as long as you live! Month after month after month . . . ♥

4. How do you make money to pay people for their recipes?
If you look at MyRecipeMagic, you will see there is an advertisement at the top of the page, two in the sidebars, and one at the bottom. Those ads are what generate the money to pay you. The more page views your ads get, the more you will get paid.  ♥

When you sign up for MyRecipeMagic, you enter in your email address that is connected to your PayPal account. All payments are safely issued through PayPal. ♥

NO! In fact, most of the people on MyRecipeMagic are not bloggers. It's the perfect place for anyone to share their favorite recipes.  ♥

In so many ways! It creates backlinks to your site, increasing your SEO. It drives traffic back to your site by having people click over to view the directions to the recipe. It will help people find you that may have never found you before. Plus, the extra money never hurt anyone! :) ♥
