Tue, 8 Apr 2014 19:24:18 EST back of the box recipes http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=33360136 I'm looking for a cornbread recipe that was published on Argo cornstarch boxes in the early 90's, using cornstarch as an ingredient and baking the bread in a 9X5 loaf pan. Argo cornstarch has changed ownership several times since and has nothing in their archives. Any help would be appreciated!! <em>304</em> Sun, 30 Mar 2014 15:57:10 EST Sparkrecipe search is very difficult! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=33197883 I am trying to find a recipe that is definitely on sparkrecipe but no matter how I type it into the search, I cannot find it.

Tue, 4 Mar 2014 05:45:58 EST Food tracker http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=33124621 I would LOVE to see Sparkpeople incorporate recipes on the 30 day 'fit food' challenge (or any other challenge that offers recipes) into the Food tracker. Even if its a range of calories. Building that meal, ingredient by ingredient is a pain. <BR> I would even help in doing some of the research! <BR> Love the 30 day fit food challenge. <BR> Denise Sun, 23 Feb 2014 10:14:38 EST Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies problem D http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=33099694 I tried these today and had a problem with them. I did forget to smash them down, but got them down finally. When they were completely cooked, though, they completely fell apart. I used Truvia in place of sugar, but I know that someone else did that with no problems. I had Kroger Natural Peanut Butter, but it was pretty runny even after mixing it and even spilling at least 1/4 of the oil from the top. Do others have that problem and how do you fix it?

Wed, 19 Feb 2014 16:10:43 EST Uncle Ben's video ads http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=33093347 Why do these play automatically when a recipe page loads? I was looking around for different recipes and on some pages, before the page could finish loading, I'd hear the audio start playing and would scroll down and see the video for a recipe with Uncle Ben's rice. These should be set so they play only when the viewer chooses to play them, not automatically when the page loads.

Mon, 27 Jan 2014 17:27:30 EST Potatoes in the recipe calculator http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32908297 I would be really grateful if I had the option of measuring potatoes in grams or ounces when I go to add them to a recipe. Right now they are listed as small, medium, large, and in cups, but I really rely on my food scale for accuracy and most of my recipes don't require the potatoes to be diced, so the cup measurement doesn't work for me. The red potatoes are listed as 100 grams, but when I go to add or adjust the amount for a recipe, the box where I would put in the amount says "undefined"...

I've found lots of great recipes there. The problem I am having, which may not even be an option at this point, is I want access to my Spark Recipe Collections. Also the My Favorite Recipes on the website does not match my Favorites in the App. Am I missing something on one or the other or is the App and Website not really synced that way? If it's not, I highly recommend fixing that.

I made a recipe on sparkrecipe using what i had on hand...some ground chicken breast, 2 cans of beans and some seasoning. I am going to throw all of it in the slow cooker today.

Sun, 5 Jan 2014 09:58:05 EST option idea http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32745437 As I was pondering what to cook the other day, I thought it would be good if one could type in 2-4 ingredients they have and click to find recipes for those main ingredients. It would be more of a directed browse and each recipe would have some of those ingredients so you don't have to open many recipes before finding one that meets your ingredient list. <BR> <BR> Thu, 2 Jan 2014 12:15:14 EST Meat and potatoe family http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32724161 Any options other than meat and potatoe family Mon, 30 Dec 2013 13:37:15 EST slow cooker turkey sausage and bean stew http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32717465 I am making this stew today.

I'm making a double batch without beans (since I can't have beans in what I keep). Will an extra can of tomatoes help to cool it off, or what can I do to get the spice not so hot? Sat, 21 Dec 2013 17:26:16 EST French Onion Soup recipe http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32663842 The other day there was a recipe for French Onion Soup that I am going to make. It says it makes two servings, but has 4 cups of broth in it. Do I need to simmer it until that broth is down to 2 cups or is it supposed to be more like 4 servings? I'll have to go after more broth if it has to be boiled down that much because I want to make enough for 3 people.

I can't find it now! <BR> <BR> I'm pretty sure it was in late August or early September, and that it was from Chef Meg. It was based on Almond and Rice flours, and was a Thumbprint type cookie with jam. <BR> Made them for a celiac friend, who loved them, and I'd love to make them again. <BR> <BR> Anyone familiar with it? <BR> <BR> A million thanks! <BR> <em>304</em> <em>247</em> Sat, 2 Nov 2013 10:08:46 EST Recipes with pictures http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32319499 Why is it the about 95% of the time the picture along with a recipe is not what the finished product will look like? This is very annoying....I look at the picture and decide to make the dish, then I read direction &/or ingredients and there is no way the dish could look like the picture.

Wed, 30 Oct 2013 12:48:53 EST Recipe comments http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32282688 I am amazed at how many negative opinions are posted to recipes that have nothing to do with the recipe (ie. the reviewer hasn't even tried it) but are just their personal opinion about why they don't like it and won't try it!! Who cares?! and how is that helpful to anyone else who might want to put the recipe to good use (ie. actually try it). <BR> And if you think it has too many calories or sodium or fat, etc.... just ignore it!

What the mind/head knows is good for us can be very easily over ruled by the heart/desire of what we really want. <BR> <BR> Today I am trying to compromise and find a way to satisfy both. Sharing with my wife seems to be a great start. A single bacon cheeseburger with a great salad and maybe a McDonalds cone for a snack. Wed, 23 Oct 2013 12:44:02 EST Changing the nutrients of an ingredient? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32261812 I have so many questions! <BR> <BR> So I created a recipe (it's not shared) and I had to add one ingredient because I couldn't find it. (It was King Arthur bread flour.) Then I realized I failed to include the amount of potassium in bread flour. How would I edit that individual ingredient's nutritional value? Tue, 22 Oct 2013 22:45:33 EST Recipe nutrition calculator? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32244034 Okay, so I added a recipe that I use often -- it's to make a loaf of bread in our bread machine. Bread is tricky, though -- sometimes I have to add a little more water to get the dough to come together, which wouldn't change the total calories/nutrients of the finished project, but sometimes I have to add some more flour, which would. And sometimes the loaf of bread is bigger than other times. And sometimes I am better at cutting even slices than other times. So while I can say "yield: 10 sli...

I get as far as main page & then once I start searching it stops running. I have tried uninstalling & reinstalling with no change. I really love this app or at least I did when it worked. Thu, 17 Oct 2013 22:52:05 EST SparkPeople App will no longer scan http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.asp?imboard=157&imparent=32183735 I purchased the app mainly for the scanning capability, since there are many free apps that can be used to track fitness and nutrition. It worked for a while, but now when I try to scan something it says "syncing". This is on iPhone. Is there anything I can do?

I would like to make a suggestion regarding the Spark Recipe Page for low sodium foods. It would be helpful if the sodium level for the recipe could be seen like the calories, fat, protein, etc. without having to actually click on the recipe to get the rest of the nutritional data. Because it's low sodium I think that's one of the main nutritional value people would like to see in the beginning. <BR> <BR> Al...

This is the first one I think is a total "bust." It was so bitter and totally unlike what I expected. If I make it again, I think I'll use a sweet apple and lowfat vanilla yogurt instead of plain.

They have a lot to offer that you can't get anywhere else, much less for free. <BR> <BR> However, one thing I'm not finding a lot of is recipes that don't use artificial ingredients to cut calories, sugar, and fat.
