Recipe is fine...but the SITE is really difficult to use since changes were made. I'm not sure what caused this, but I have been coming to Food for years and never encountered this problem before to this degree. Just stops working for no apparent reason.. hangs up in the middle of a search. This doesn't happen anywhere else...just here. Food Network Canada also seems fine. My PC is very fast and up-to-date with all the latest "bells & whistles", so I am having a problem understanding why this happens here  all the time. I'm sure there are other users out there who feel the same way. I will continue to attempt to use this SITE, but as this happens all too often, I find myself going elsewhere for the recipes I'm looking for. I hope you can fix this problem. Thank you for your time. (An avid Food Network fan).
