I'm pretty tired tonight. My 14-year old daughter had a sleepover last night and her friends, DH and I went to her concert today, so I'll turn in early tonight. Tomorrow, my husband's working at home on the computer, so I might not be able to experiment until tomorrow night or Tuesday. Have a good night!!!!

Yep. Just tinker with it. If you can't figure something out, just let me know. I'm usually up pretty late.
I'm gonna sit here and play a computer game for a while, since my 6 year old seems to have QUIT on me already! lol!
I will check in again in a while, and see how you're doing.
OK?

No, problem...

OK. Click on the link (under Healthy Lifestyle) that says SparkRecipes.com
Then when you get there, click on Recipe Calculator.
Now, everything should be fairly self explanatory from there.
Click on ADD AN INGREDIENT to add ingredients. Also, NOTE, that when you are adding ingredients you can search Spark's database AND/OR you may look through foods that you have already entered and saved in your nutrtion tracker (real handy!).
OK, so.. once you have added your ingredients, you simply go through all the "stations"

Number of servings
Recipe name
Upload a photo (optional)
description (optional)
ingredient list
directions
Main Category
optional categories
prep time
cooking time

If you want to SHARE your recip with the rest of the world, then make sure you check off the box at the bottom that indicates that you want to share.

After saving the recipe, you can add it to cookbooks (just create a cookbook), share with other members, print it out, share on Facebook, etc.

Now, when you go into your Nutrtion Tracker back on sparkpeople, there is a recipe tab. It will automatically be there in your recipes.

Let me know if you need more help. I'm always around!

Yes.
You used to have to ADD them, but now when you save the recipe on Spark Recipes, they will show up automatically under the RECIPES tab in your tracker (when you click on ADD A FOOD.
Have you used the Recipe Calculator on Spark Recipes before? If not, let me know. I will walk you through that.

And you can add them into your nutrition tracker and nutrients will be calculated? Thanks, but this is all new to me.

You mean in your nutrtion tracker?
All of your saved recipes on Spark Recipes will now be there in an extra tab in your nutrtion tracker.
Is that what you mean?
They can be recipes either you created, favorited or commented on.
