Click where it says register and fill out the form. Your password will be emailed to you. Once you receive it you can log in and then change it to something you will be able to remember.

Upload Your Photos
Now whenever you make one of our recipes, why not share a picture with everyone? You can upload your own photos by navigating to the recipe and clicking on the "Upload your own image: link on the right side of the recipe card. Browse to the photo on your computer's hard drive and upload!

Recipe Box
Now when you browse Alicia's and find recipes you want to try, you can save them to a favorite recipes box so that they will be there whenever you need them. To use this great feature, simply navigate to the recipe you want to save and click in the upper right corner where it says "add this recipes to your box of favorites". Whenever you are logged in, your recipe box will appear in the upper left side , just above "browse recipes".

Rate a Recipe
Now you can rate the recipes that you try on a scale from 1 to 5. The rating stars are located in the upper left corner of each recipe. You do not need to be logged in to rate a recipe. If you are logged in the system will remember what you rated each recipe as and will display that to you.
