    How do I use the recipe sifter within my private cookbooks....been storing some away for ZWT, and now have no way to sort them out!! Didn't put them in separate cookbooks according to ingredients, just regions. Now I need to search through my saved ones for specific ingredients. Can I do this?

    Never mind....think I may have figured it out. Have to say, I'm not a fan of the new nav bar. Takes much more time to do what I need to do.

    Just so everyone else knows, I may going to add how this is done.

    From your cookbooks page, hover over the Top Recipes tab and click on the Recipe Sifter button in the bottom right hand corner of the flyout.

    Mary - the issue I had last night was when searching for recipes (just say Zucchini Bread) and then wanted to sift from there. The recipe sifter used to be available for that but now the only choice I could find was the narrowing down by category, main ingredient, etc. and not the actual sifter where you can type in an ingredient. Am I missing something and can you help me? icon_lol.gif That is a really open question! icon_rolleyes.gif

    Oh and so you know I used the sifter like this when making sure I was not adding duplicate recipes - did a general search and then narrowed down by specific ingredients.

    Thanks~ icon_smile.gif

    I was able to do that search today, HM.

    I typed in the dish I wanted (zucchini bread, say), then hovered my cursor over TOP RECIPES in the navigation bar. In the bottom right corner, I clicked on the sifter button. The sifter came up with zucchini bread already in the parameters. Then I used the sifter as normal.

    Oh that is wonderful news! Thanks Molly. I did not think to grab it from the top recipes tab...I was just looking for it with the actual search. Off to go searching for recipes as I still have some to enter. I'm so glad as my biggest fear on here is duplicating a recipe!

    Thanks so much for sharing that tip with me! icon_smile.gif

    Is there a way to scroll through all 24 of my cookbooks while still in the drop-down menu, or do I need to click on "all my cookbooks"?

    There is a little slider bar to the right of the cookbook listed underneath your main cookbook ~ grab hold and pull the slider bar down! icon_razz.gif

    thanks! I saw that little gray bar but only tried to click on it rather than grab hold and slide --

    Personally, I'm not a fan of the new navigation bar - it now involves a lot more clicking around to get to the same stuff! I want my cookbooks front and centre and I want the recipe sifter with easy access. Now it seems there must be an extra step to get at these features which seems counter-intuitive. I would rather have things I use always on the bar then the "once in a whiles" like holidays and meal planning, especially since not being American, the holiday features seem to only cater to the US.

    Just my 2 cents.

    This design change has engendered too many counter-intuitive clicks. I hope you'll consider reverting back. I think hiding Recipe Sifter under Top Recipes is a particularly poor choice. Also, the viewable section of our "Cookbooks" scrollable list needs to be a LOT longer.

    Sorry, I love Food.com, but regarding these changes: a big thumbs-down! They actually make me feel like you don't value your patrons, because it's all our own personalized items that have been "devalued", i.e,, moved away to a non-prominent position.

    Also a suggestion, please make the "Recipe Sifter" button link right-clickable to open in a new tab.

    I have to agree with Cadillacgirl! I would rather have things that I use on the navigation bar as well. Too many clicks to find my own recipes...not a good thing! Little changes can be a good thing but these are major changes here! I didn't expect not to be able to find my own recipes. I had to come here to find out were they were! That's unacceptable...sorry. I was afraid that this sort of thing was going to happen, but I was hoping for the best. I've been on Food.com for a very long time and have recommended it to all my friends in the past. I may think twice about doing this in the future.

    There are no more clicks to find your recipes or reviews than there were before. You hover your cursor over the blue box to the right of your icon, then just click on your recipes. One click. Before Wednesday you would hover your cursor over the Recipes tab then click on your recipes. One click.

    It is in a different place. Just as two years ago the Recipes tab was a new place to find recipes.
