Problem with "recipe of the day" on one of my computers

I have several computers. Only one of them is having this problem. And two of them are on the same network!!! I can't click on "Get this recipe" on Chow recipe of the day on one of them (the main one, of course) and get the save this recipe page. I instead get a huge amount of material printed in blue on the left side of my screen. How can I get this extraneous stuff to go away, and get back to the easy one click to save the daily recipe???
Please help ASAP.
I love CHOW, and use it at least once a day

where to buy a gateau Concorde

We had a wonderful little French delicatessen in Lexington, MA called L'Alouette, But sadly, the owner went back to France, and his successor ruined the place. He has now gone out of business, Where can I buy the wonder fruit tarts, and nut tarts that L'Alouette used to stock? More importantly, where can I buy the wonderful gateau Concorde, a chocolate mousse cake, covered with chocolate meringue curls?
My grandson got over his food aversion with that "crunchy cake", and it has become a family staple for holidays and birthdays.
Help please, Greater Lexington area, if possible

No mayonnaise potato salad

I was trying to get a recipe that had NO extras, NO mayonnaise, just potaoes, seasoning, Oil and vinegar, I think, and not much else. I guess no one really understands that, and I can't find anyone who seems to recall that type of potato salad, I just keep hoping!!!

No mayonnaise potato salad

Sorry if I offended you. The original request was for a recipe for the ubiquitous potato salad in NYC and Long Island delis in the 40's and 50's. The reason I asked for people older than 75 is that no one else seems to remember the thin sliced potato salad, wit NO mayonnaise, just a sprinkling of parsley, and obvious vinegar
I assumed that you all would know about my original request, but I see that I did not reference that.
Please see that original post for NY deli potato salad under my name

No mayonnaise potato salad

Please, everyone Thanks for all your responses, but most of you have mayonnaise in your recipes

The potato salad I am thinking of was thin sliced, obviously had vinegar and a ? little sugar, and was sprinkled with a very small amount of parsley. There wasn't any egg, or other additives, or spices that I remember. I am quite sure that there was NO mayonnaise. It's possible that there was pickle brine, but certainly not sweet pickles.

Anyone who is younger than 75 need not answer!!!!

Wildcat sauce

Unfortunately, no
I have lost my sense of smell (which is what taste really is), and can't begin to recreate the recipe.
I listed the ingredients in an earlier post. Maybe some kind and talented chowhounder could attempt to approximate it

I have 3 bottles which I am hoarding

Tango restaurant bread dipping sauce recipe

I have no idea what is dried and what is fresh on this list; this is the list was given:
garlic, parsley, red pepper flakes, oregano, bay leaf, red wine vinegar, olive oil, paprika.
I've done a little research on my own, and discovered that the sauce is almost certainly a variant of chimichurri, made red by the addition of paprika. I will get the proportions for various Argentinian and Latin American cookbooks.
Thanks,
