    I can't figure out how to delete a recipe from my (Main) Cookbook.

    Never mind, I looked for half an hour, finally posted the question, then 2 minutes later I found the remove button. Yes, my face is red.

    I saw the note about the unit converter sometimes not working. My issue is that there IS no unit converter. Each time I find a recipe that uses European measurements, I have to go to another website and convert each ingredient myself. It's a royal pain. Do you know why I don't seem to have a converter?


    The conversion links are showing for me on recipes. At the end of the ingredient list it says: Change Measurement: US / Metric

    If it's not there, something is up with your browser.

    Also, there is still an option to refine search by ingredients using the Sifter. It's buggy right now (for custom ingredient searches) but the option remains.

    There used to be an area where you could search by ingredients you have on hand. It's gone. A simple check list of ingredients, also had types of cuisine. WHat happened to it !!! I want it back.


    This is the Recipe Sifter. It's still there. Please refer to my original post with the visual of where to find it and how to use it.

    My first post........ icon_biggrin.gif I love having the premium features at no cost. I'm trying to use the recipe reorder in my private cookbooks, but it is not responding. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums! Glad you're liking the new premium features.

    Unfortunately, if you're trying to use the manual "Reorder Recipes" option, that's not working correctly right now and is on the list to fix. The little grabber hand doesn't seem to actually do anything.

    But I just tried testing the "Sort by" option on one of my private cookbooks (did sorting for photo, rating, time to make, etc) and it seemed to work. I'll try it on other private cookbooks too. Maybe that's a good workaround for you for now?

    Thanks!

    When will there be a sifter for recipe reviews I've submitted? It's been 9 months since the change and I don't see one.

    Prior to the changeover, I could slice and dice my recipe reviews with the sifter to find a specific recipe or a category of recipes. This was EXTREMELY useful. As things stand right now, my reviews are almost useless to me.

    I am sure that I am just missing this somewhere, but I have been searching for an hour and can't find the answer! How do I divide an ingredient list in a recipe I'm posting into different parts? For example, if I'm posting a cake with a glaze and I want to list those separately but still in the same recipe...

    CAKE
    1 c flour
    2 eggs
    etc

    GLAZE
    1 c powdered sugar
    1 t vanilla
    etc

    I apologize if I have simply overlooked directions for how to do this! Any help is appreciated be it instructions or a link to instructions or where I can find instructions icon_smile.gif Thanks--Kari

    No need to apologize -- it isn't clearly explained on the Add a Recipe form and that's something we should add/improve.

    To do it, just list the header text you want with a colon after it.

    So an example recipe would read like this...


    ICING:
    1 cup powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    6 tablespoons butter

    CAKE:
    3 cups flour
    1 cup sugar
    ....

    Does that make sense?

    PLEASE bring back the Recipe Sifter for our own reviews and photos! I often want to remake a recipe, but if I can't remember what the posting chef called it, it takes *forever* to find it in my almost 1000 reviews. I have had to start saving my favorite recipes to my computer & Tastebook.com so I can sort them and find them easier.

    Please reconsider not having a sifter on our reviews and photos so I can use Food.com!

    If I published a recipe as private, how do I change it to public?

    Thanks.

    When you go to view the full recipe, you should see a link at the top center that says: "Private Recipe. Make it Public or Delete" and if you click "Make it Public" that submits it to our queue for review and publishing. It'll show publicly on the site within a couple days after that, if approved.

    What's the recipe name or can you post the link? Zmail it to me or post it here (don't worry, no one else will be able to access it) and I will check it out.
