Spark People won't let me use grams so I have to do it this dumb way

Spark People, why won't you let me calculate the calories in a recipe by the gram???? It seems so intuitive. But the way you do it and the way the other recipe calculator sites do it seems so stupid.

Creamy Grape Dessert (150.9 gram serving size)

Spark People doesn't make this easy but I want to allow you to weigh your actual serving in grams and record nutritional info accurately. This total recipe weighs 1509 grams. One 10th of the recipe weighs 150.9 grams. So every 15 grams above or below 150 add or subtract .1 of a serving.

Dangerously Addictive Oven Roasted Pecans

Oven roasting pecan with butter or margarine makes them even more tasty! Highly addictive.

Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili

A tasty vegetarian bean chili available from several sources. I usually leave out the zest because I don't have it in my pantry. This is very popular with non-vegetarians and vegetarians alike. Just don't expect it to taste exactly like your standard chili because it doesn't. The sweet potato is a revelation.

Microwave Pecan Brittle, airy and crisp

This is a modification of a Microwave Brittle that has been around for 30 years and has appeared many places. The instructions are unique and have helped many friends and family members master this amazing concoction. If it burns try again with less cooking time. It will always work eventually. Some people use peanuts but I prefer home grown backyard gathered pecans.

Yummy Easy Sugar Free Fat Free flavored yogurt

This easy recipe combines a 1 ounce package of your favorite flavor of Jello Sugar Free Fat Free instant pudding with 32 ounces of plain nonfat yogurt for a half cup treat with a little yogurt zip. There are many variations on this idea. This is one that worked well for me.
