Be Sure To Specify Serving Size In Recipes You Share As Well As # Of Servings!!
Members Were Sparked
If you prepare a new recipe and share it with SP, PLEASE indicate the serving size in the recipe! If you just say your recipe "Makes 12 servings of 147 calories each" without specifying you meant 12 1/2-cup servings it may ruin the day for someone who guessed you meant 1-cup servings!
You wouldn't want to eat double the calories you should have, and you wouldn't want to have to measure it all into a different container to figure out the servings before you could serve it. Be considerate!

Good Morning All. I know we all Love to try new recipes and posting them to SparkRecipes.com...PLEASE When entering a new recipe, put the serving SIZE (eg. 1 cup or 4 oz etc..). It's quite difficult to make a recipe and then divide it by the number of servings to find out the serving size. We all try to watch our serving sizes and acturally measure them out all the time. It would be so helpful to include the serving sizes in your recipes for all of us. Thank You.You are all the BEST....OXOX
Easy measureing. Since servings are not always easy, for things like cereal, I keep the proper serving size measuring cup in the container. I get the exact serving size without having to pour into a measuring cup.
You get the exact serving size rather than having more and gaining weight from improper serving sizes.
