NEW on SparkRecipes.com: Make Over Any Recipe, Add to Your Tracker


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, September 22, 2011



When SparkPeople members ask, we answer.

You told us that you love being able to add SparkRecipes to your meal planner, but you don't always follow a recipe exactly. You like to make them your own. You wanted an easier way to edit and track the recipes on SparkRecipes.com.

Now you can!

Here's how:
Click on any recipe. I used this one as an example: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=72105
Click "Create a Recipe Makeover"

Add, edit or delete ingredients, and change the directions as needed.
Click save.
Your recipe will be titled like this: MAKEOVER: Vanilla Yogurt Parfait (by SP_STEPF)

Your recipe will not be visible to other members unless you share the link with them. It will show up in your recipe box.

Bon appetit!

    I've done this several times and love the option. I can add my own ingredients or just tweak some of the ingredients in the original recipe. It's great. emoticon

  Great idea! As a vegan I'm constantly making substitutions (soymilk for cow's milk, tofu for ground beef, etc.) so this feature will make nutrition tracking *SO* much easier. Thanks!

  YAY!!!!! I was tinkering with oatmeal recipes (different kinds of milk, different sweeteners, different flavorings) and it got VERY tedious having to reenter all the same ingredients over and over with only one change.

THANKS!!!
