    Top Cookbook & Menu FAQs

    How do I create custom Cookbooks and add recipes to them?

    Every member has the opportunity to save any recipe on our site in what we call "cookbooks" — all for free! Everyone starts out with a Main Cookbook, where you can save everything, but if you would like to organize saved recipes into different groups, you can create personalized cookbooks. Create as many as you want.

    You can add and edit new cookbooks by visiting the My Cookbooks page or create a new cookbook by using the "Add to Cookbook" button on an individual recipe.

    Your Main Cookbook and all custom cookbooks are private by default and only you can see them. To publish any book publicly, so you can share them with other members or family, visit the My Cookbooks page and select Edit Cookbook on the appropriate cookbook. Then select the option to make the cookbook public. Don't forget to click "Save"! Your Main Cookbook is the only cookbook you can't make public.

    NOTE: To create and edit cookbooks, you must be a registered member of Food.com and be signed in to view them.

    NOTE: You must be signed in to view and edit your personal cookbooks.

    How do I remove or move recipes within a Cookbook?

    To delete saved recipes from any of your cookbooks, first you need to view the full cookbook recipe list. To access the cookbook, choose the specific cookbook from the Cookbooks menu at the top of any Food.com page or from the My Cookbooks page.

    Then, review the list of recipes and click the "Select" box on any recipes that you want to remove or move to another cookbook. Choose the "Remove" button to delete them or the "Add to Cookbook" to move them to another cookbook in your collection.

    To edit the name, cover image and description on a cookbook, visit the My Cookbooks page and select the "Edit Cookbook" button for whichever cookbook you want to update. Make your changes and then click "Save Changes."

    All cookbooks are private by default, but you can make them public and share them with other members or family members — just select the "Make Public" option on the cookbook editing page. Your cookbook will now show up in search results and you can share it with anyone by sending them the link.

    How do I create menus and add recipes to them?

    All members can create personalized menus — as many as you want and all for free!

    You can add and edit your menus by visiting the My Menus page or create a new menu while browsing recipes by using the "Add to Menu" button on an individual recipe's page.

    All menus you create are private by default and only you can see them, but you can publish them publicly to share with other members and family and friends. To publish a menu, visit the My Menus page and select the menu's title to edit it. Then, click the link just under the menu's title that says "Make Public" and be sure to save your changes. Your menu will now show up in searches on the site and be available for all members to view and review .
