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 been hoping for this all year!

Now if you could make the nutrition tracker usable for the iPad my Spark life will be complete!

    Thank you!

Even with my own recipes I am forever changing them! I am sure to try this out - sounds faster than having to go through my recipe box and the edit button.

You rock!

  OK, now this sounds cool!

Almost everything I prepare is made-from-scratch . . . and sometimes I don't always make the same dish the same way that I made it before.

I had actually stopped using the food tracker because it was consuming far too much time for me; and that was becoming stressful. I still record my food, though.

With this new feature on the food tracker, I think it will be easier for me to record my food. I'm going to try it out this weekend.

Thanks, Stefanie!

Be blessed,

    I must be dense I cannot get this to come up for me. I am afraid I cannot find anything like that on the recipe page. I was hoping some day to be able to do this faster.

Right now I do it on PAPER and it takes too much time but it has to be done. Pat in Maine.

    Absolutely stoked about this feature, because I hardly ever make recipes exactly as they are stated. Redoing one already posted instead of completely rewriting is a God-send in figuring out the nutritional value.

    Thank you for the information. I have taken recipe's and changed
them a little. What happens to me is I don't know what some of the ingredients are and have to look them up online to find out what it is. I love the recipe's and have a lot I have used already. Have a great weekend.

    I tried this just now with a simple recipe makeover. A very neat feature! Thank You! However, it shows the original recipe - how do I save the makeover to show up on my tracker under recipe?
