    Is there any way to look for recipes that don't have a certain ingredient in them? I am looking for cookie recipes but I do NOT want any with chocolate or peanut butter in them. I can't figure out how to eliminate them from the results. Any ideas?

    Not easy with this sifter because you have to eliminate every kind of chocolate and peanut butter listed ~ HOPEFULLY with the new sifter being developed, they'll give us back the INCLUDE ALL and ELIMINATE ALL choices!

    Thanks. That's what I was afraid of. I made it through 17 pages of cookies out of around 1700 pages and I found a few to make.

    When you click filter by ingredient, first see if peanut butter or chocolate are prefilled - if they are, then click the red area with the circle to exclude. Then type chocolate into the box, and exclude all the forms that appear - a lot I know and we have repeatedly asked for exclude all to be returned. Then repeat with Peanut butter.

    A pain with ingredients such as this that come in many forms, but not so bad with other ingredients.

    OK where are you getting the "filter by ingredient" thing? The only thing I see is the "Narrow Search" box. when I click on that it comes up with "add Filter" and a list of things but if I click on any of them it narrows it down to INCLUDE that ingredient. For example, if I click on "chocolate" every recipe will have chocolate in it. I'm not seeing anywhere to "X" off ingredients. Where on the page would it be located?

    Oh and I don't know if it matters but I use Firefox.

    On the Recipe Sifter.

    you might start with the Recipe Sifter. So you click Recipe Sifter (it's in the Top Recipes tab - right hand column, on the bottom).

    you'd select course icon_arrow.gif desserts icon_arrow.gif cookies and brownies and perhaps the type of cookie you want.

    Then go back to the first column and select Filter by Ingredient.

    Or perhaps you typed something like oatmeal cookies into the search bar. Once you get those results, you can click the Recipe Sifter and filter out chocolate and peanut butter.

    This works fine on FF and Chrome - people with IE alas are having a problem because of a weird glitch.
