Mad I just spent an hour adding a recipe that required typing in ingredient specific nutritional information along with VERY detailed cooking instructions and when I went to fix a typo.....all the directions were gone! And why is there no place to put how much a serving is? If it's cups ounces or grams! If I can't show that you can eat 1.5 cups of my Chop Suey w/ a 1/2 cup rice for under 400 calories, what was the point of me measuring everything?!?!?! (quick, get the fat chick a piece of chocolate, she's gonna blow!)Mad

You enter the serving size in terms of number of servings that a recipe makes. Many recipes have natural variation in the measurements of the output, but the number of servings will be consistent.

If you're doing lots of intricate work I recommend saving regularly, just in case. This is true for everything on a computer, not just this site.

You can add a serving to your diet calendar, but you have to do it from your cookbook rather than from the enter food dialog. That's annoying.
