Thanks, Coach Jen. That helped.
May I say, though, that the other way it was set up made much more sense.

Coach Jen, I totally realize now what the problem it. Its the browser I'm using. When I use firefox the advanced search engine is not there. I tried it with Internet Explorer - which I can't stand and the advanced search option was there. There must be some security option that I have to override.

Thanks

When you're in SparkRecipes, type a word in the box at the top. Then in the orange box at the top of the page is the advanced button. I just checked and it's there.

Hi Barb

If you do a keyword search for "chicken", at the top you'll see an orange button that says "show advanced options". You'll be able to refine the search from there.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

Chris, this has actually been a problem for quite some time. I just never got around to asking before.

It's most frustrating to have to scroll through a bunch of unrelated recipes.

I'm having the same problem. Can't find the search option for under 50 calories!! This happened once before when they were updated the website or something. But since yesterday when I got on still haven't found that option. What a waste.

I'm looking for a low-fat chicken recipe for supper. I click on low-fat and have to scroll through a bunch of completely unrelated breakfast, dessert, etc recipes.

We used to be able to click on exactly the terms we wanted...low-fat, poultry, supper...and Search would pull up those ideas. Now it seems we can't.

Am I doing something wrong?
