Where Do ThriftyFun Recipes Come From?

I noticed that about 99.9% of the recipes posted on ThriftyFun are submitted by Robin from Washington, IA and Connie from Cotter, AR. I'm wondering if they actually try out ALL the recipes they submit or do they just submit any recipe they think looks good...etc? Why don't more people submit recipes, and why do those two always submit recipes? Are their recipes used as filler just because hardly anyone else submits any?

Editor's Notes: Robin does submit about 5 recipes to us every day and has been doing this for years. Connie has recently been submitting quite a few recipes too. We have other people that submit recipes on a regular basis and we tend to post those as we get them. I wouldn't say that Robin's are filler because they are some of our best and most requested recipes.

Anyone can submit recipes and we would love to have more variety. If you are using a recipe from a published source, we just would like to give them credit. Also, give us comments about the experience or additions that you may have used to make it more personal. As the holidays are approaching, send us your favorite family recipes for this time of year for everyone to share.

some of Robin's have been copied from Taste of Home,kraftfoods and Betty Crocker. Others I'm sure are probably hers.

and no I am not "slamming on Robin"before anyone starts getting upset about this comment

she has posted several good recipes

Yes, THANK YOU Robin, for all the great recipes! Please keep them coming! I don't know, and don't care, where they come from. I just know that when I make one you submitted it turns out delicious!

It's funny how differently we read things... When I read Robin's recipes I just glow with respect and admiration for her since I am quite possibly the worst cook on the planet. note to Robin... YOU GO GIRL!!!

I hope nobody took my question negatively. I just noticed the regularity and abundance of their submissions and wondered about it. I haven't tried any of the recipes...but I'm sure they're good.

boy some of you sure can get your self in an uproar over a simple question or comment. thrifty fun's policy is that you Can Not copy and paste recipes from other sites

but on the other hand it is nice to be able to get recipes one normally wouldn't get otherwise.

and I appreciate "everyone"who takes the time to post a recipe on here

there a "lots" of good recipes posted by "several" thriftyfun readers

I too appreciate all the good tips I have recieved and crafts I have learned to do

this site is wonderful and I want to take a moment to also thank all the staff who devotes time to do all this for us.

"Don't submit copyrighted material. If you'd like to submit a link to an interesting site, please do, just submit the link with an explanation why you think it would be valuable to our community"

I know someone said they didn't care where recipes come from but if you read the rules posted by ThriftyFun this is one of them.
