I'm assuming you had your Baked Beans recipe pulled up and clicked on the button there to add it to your Nutrition Tracker. (If that is not what you are doing, please provide more details so we can better help.) After you select a date on the calendar, the "Add a Food" window should pop up like URBANREDNEK mentioned. Click on "Backed Beans", adjust the serving amount and meal if needed, and then click the button to "Add Food to Today".

Let us know if you need additional help.

Hmmm - I'm not sure what you mean by "category". Is the "baked beans" the name of your recipe?

When I get the "Add a Food" window, it opens on the "Food Search" tab with an empty search bar, but underneath is the main listing window with the name of the recipe that I started from highlighted in reddish orange. Since I started from a specific recipe, I don't need to search - it is already listed / chosen / highlighted - so I just need to put in my quantity and the meal I want it in.

Is the recipe you are starting from not showing up in the highlighted bar on the Food Search tab?

If that is the case, then maybe trying hitting the "Recipes" tab and get the drop-down menu of My Recipe Box to choose from. Your recipe should show up there (if it is one that you have saved in to My Recipe Box), and you can choose it from there.

I am in the recipe and click add to nutrition tracker. I get the calendar and select the day. I see the category, baked beans, but cannot select or scroll to any other option.

I am using Microsoft Edge and Windows 10.
