when I added my recipie I looked over at the Nutritional value and it is way off. How can I add it myself?

I agree with "CHUCKLES0719"! Why can't we arrange our cookbook list alphabetically or whatever way that we would like? The way that is it now the list will change, depending on what you are doing at the time, and you have to search for the one that you are wanting to access. It would seem to be a small change to allow this!

I just spent an hour inputting a recipe into the calculator, this required me to put nutritional data in for several ingredients, I was on the very last step of instructions when my browser crashed . As a result , I lost the recipe, I wish their was a way to save before you are finished because I don't have the time to redo it . At least the nutritional info saved . It would also be nice if we could modify existing recipes ( not your own) without having to to redo the entire recipe.

How do I edit the servings per recipe? My Hot Cabbage Soup recipe says only 1 serving when it shoule say 10 to 12 servings

when adding ingredients in a recipe, do I add 1 serving size or the total amount that is being added to the recipe? For instance, if the recipe is a total of 8 servings, do I use the amount for 1 serving or 8 servings? I want to be sure that I am calculating the amount correctly.

I tried to put the serving size in my guilt-free potato salad, but I can't find where to put it, so I put it at the end of the recipe.

I think the recipe calculator malfunctions sometimes -- I submitted a recipe (Vietnamese Lime Pho Jello Salad) in which the total calories for all the ingredients was 170 calories -- but the calculator is telling each serving is a 170 calories. Just thought you should know -- I'll post a comment in the message boards, too.

When I try to print out a recipe (or save it) parts of the nutritional value are not there, is there any way to save the entire nutritional value for printing?

I am trying to use the recipe calculator. It will not "take" 1/3 cup. It tells me I need to use a numeric value. What does this mean?!

Just realized I have a lot of experience that I can pass on...

LINDADIBB - When you save your recipe, there's a checkbox where you can decided whether to share your recipe.

LADYWOLF55 - I never have any problems with removing items. As a technical response to your answer, I'd suggest that you make sure you're using the latest version of your browser. Older browsers don't always function properly. If that's not the problem, I'm in the dark.

SHELBY74 - I don't have any problems adding items to a recipe to get it to calculate. 2 tips: make sure your browser is up to date, and make sure you check the nutritional info on the items you're adding. Sometimes people make mistakes in those entries and they'll have 0 calories or something.

REZAV01 - Go to the recipe page. There should be a button on the top of the page to "Add Recipe to a Cookbook". Your cookbook should be listed there. Both public and private cookbooks should show up there.

PATSYINCA and MELEPPS- Click on the "My Recipes" link on the top bar. That should take you to your recipe box which will list all of your recipes like little cards. To the right of each recipe is a couple of links. One of these is "Edit". They really should put that on the recipe page if you own it.

VICKILYN4 - Go to the recipe page. Under the nutritional info page is a link to add the recipe to your tracker. You'll get a calendar to pick a date, then your normal "Add Food" popup will appear. Make sure you're doing this on a computer (not mobile phone), and that your browser is up to date.

MARIMOMS8 - When you create a recipe, you will have the option to publish it on Sparkpages. When you view the recipe, there's a link at the top of the page to add it to your cookbook. :) (Or to create a new cookbook.)

POLARBEARSCAT - If there aren't a lot of ingredients, you can create a Food Grouping. I've done this with breakfast, sandwich, and salad combinations I use all the time. Go to your tracker and click on "Add Food". Click on the Food Grouping tab and make a new grouping, adding your ingredients. Keep portion size in mind.
