Does anyone know how to input the serving size of a personal recipe? I added a recipe for my food list but it will only list it as a single serving.

I've been wondering the same thing. You input a certain number of servings when you create the recipe, but it would be nice to be able to assign an amount, so later when I make it I can make sure I using the same portion size each time. Hope somebody can answer this for us, or maybe we can submit a request for them to add that function....

When I write a recipe I meassure out the portions and then write it in at the end of the recipe directions. So all I have to do is look at the recipe to see what the serving size is. If you are adding a favorite's recipe add the info to the description.
Things that make you go Hmmm....

. If you ate pasta and antipasta would you still be hungry?
. If one synchronized swimmer drowns. Do the rest have to drown too?
. If space is a vacuum, who changes the bag?
. What is another word for Thesaurus?
. Is there an imaginary cure for hypochondria?

Just wondering....

I like to put it in the description so you can see it right away. Also, if you are adding a particular food to either a recipe or your journal and the only choice is 1 serving, I add it in parenthesis after the name of the item before I click Add to diary. Check out my food diary you will see what I mean.
