    Recipe I tried to submit

    A little over a week ago, I tried to enter a recipe, but one of the ingredients was not recognized by the data base. This is not unusual because the recipe calls for ammonium carbonate. The site told me to request help and also that the recipe would be accessible in a few days. Well, I have not heard back, nor do I know where the recipe went. This is an old family recipe, and if it can not be put in my private recipes, I would request that the recipe be deleted.

    The recipe is for Swedish Cookies. Thank you for your help.

    Is the recipe listed in Track My Submissions?

    Is this the same ingredient?

    Yes,it was, I think, because the notice said something about being able to retrieve it. Yes, that is the same ingredient. My family has always called it ammonium carbonate, and the druggist understood what I meant when I asked for it by that name.

    That ingredient is in the database so it should work.

    If it ended up submitted, then it should be published. kathy was off a couple of days, so she had a backlog, but you can zmail her and ask her to try to push through the recipe so you can make a correction. It's kathy at - the person who takes care of the nutritional errors in the thread above - look at the last page or two for her name.

    After you click the POST RECIPE button, your recipe is added to the approval queue of recipes to be added to the public database. The public database is updated throughout the day (M-F, excluding US holidays) and you will receive an email notifying you when your recipe is available to the public.

    To check on the approval progress, double-click on your chef name at the top of the page to get to your About Me page, then scroll down to TRACK MY SUBMISSIONS (it's on the right side of the page):

    Once your recipe has been approved/made public, it will only be removed if it is identified as a duplicate of another recipe already in the database.

    If you discover an error after the recipe has been approved, click on SUBMIT A CORRECTION in the column just to the right of the directions, make the changes you wish, scroll through the subsequent pages until you get to the one that tells you they've been successfully submitted.

    I don't see your recipe waiting in the wings for approval, and I can't find it on the site. It is possible it wasn't submitted successfully. Try to submit again and I will keep an eye out for it!
