The recipe calculator has helped me on several of my recipes. It is really easy.

I use the Recipe Calculator for my home made items. You can simply enter in the ingredients without entering cooking instructions and the calculator will figure the calories.

I do make my own yogurt, but I do think the recipe calculator is real helpful if you're making yogurt that is incubated longer to reduce the glucose. But that's minor and you can always "enter a food that's not listed" on the Nutrition Tracker and enter the nutrition yourself.

I cook from scratch too. I would like to add teaspoons, tablespoons etc. of any ingredient to the recipes I create, but I only have a choice of serving size. Any chance the webmaster can add them to the drop down list along with the serving size?

I'm new here & I do a lot of cooking from scratch. I make my own home made mixes, I do a lot of canning, I make my own yogurt & granola. How do I figure out the calories for those items? Like this morning, I ate a breakfast burrito that I made this weekend & froze for a quick breakfast. When I tried to add it to my Nutrition tracker I had a hard time figuring out what to put. Any ideas would be helpful!
