Website for recipe organization and storage?

Apologies if this has been discussed before, and if this is not the right board to post on.
Anyone know of a website that allows you to store recipes? I bookmark on-line recipes all the time, but I'd love to have a site where I could copy the recipes to including my notes after I made them. I made a great crockpot recipe the other night, and had made it once before, but don't have notes from the first time so think I made the same mistake twice (ie, I would modify the recipe a little). If I had a site where I could store the recipe with my cooking notes, I could improve it each time!
There’s a bunch out there, like allrecipes.com and food.com tasteofhome.com
But warning to you: you lose the “rights” to your own recipes once you post them there they become the intellectual property of the site owner
There’s software you can buy relatively inexpensively that will do the same, such as Living cookbook.
Why not just use a dedicated Gmail account?
You can save every recipe in an e-mail, and then use Gmail labels to organize, e.g. Entree, Dessert, Kosher, etc.
Save the recipe e-mail as a "draft" and you can go back and edit and add notes as you use and revise the recipe.
It's private and nearly limitless space.
