Editing a recipe in my cookbook

I found this nice recipe for potato salad so I created a recipe in My Cookbook. The recipe had no serving size so I estimated it. Now that I've had two days of eating it, I grossly underestimated the number of servings. I was wondering if there is any way of changing a recipe once it's been submitted. It's still waiting for approval, if that makes any difference.

Just select it from your cook book, click on edit and update the number of servings.

Once you've done that, you need to reselect it for the meals you've eaten to get it to update in your food diary Smile

Thank you but the option to edit is not there. 😯 Or at least I can't find it. I guess I could change the serving number in my food log, but I was hoping for a more permanent, and remember-able, solution. ☺

There is no way to edit a recipe on my own cookbook and that is very frustrating

You can edit it from the website but not from the app. On the website > recipes > my cookbook and then you can view or edit your recipes!

I really need to edit my recipe. It was my first day on the website and it's a complete mess. If I can't edit, I'd love to delete it and try again. Please someone, help me.

This is what it looks like on my labtop:
