Copy Recipe Feature Released!

Thank you to all of our beta testers – we’re finally able to release the Copy Recipe feature.

Copying a recipe is simple. And once you do, that copy is your own – and you can add ingredients, edit ingredients and remove ingredients to your heart’s content.

To copy a recipe, simply View any recipe.

Then, click the “Copy Recipe” button (pointed out by the red arrow in the picture to the left), and you will be taken to the Recipe Builder page, with the recipe loaded (and automatically saved).

Let us know what you think! This is just one more feature we’ve added because members requested it!

    Sounds like a great idea! I’ll have to try it, thanks!

    Works very well. I began using it immediately because I wanted to grab an already created recipe but modify it for in house ingredient or brands that I may have on hand and see how it affects the balance of blocks, etc. To do this I might ‘Add an ingredient’. Problem confusion I had was in copying it when in ‘Family Style’ mode because when viewing the recipe it shows it proportioned for all family members as well as based on which meal or snack it is. However when I copy it, it then shrinks it to individual plan size. My work around (which makes sense), is to then edit it as the individual sized ingredients making the substitutions, etc. When I finished editing it I then save it. When it is then viewed again (modified) under ‘My Recipes’ it will then properly show it proportioned for the whole family.

    Nice work to whoever created this!! Thanks!

    Hi Bill,

    Thank you for the kind words!

    I think you’ve figured this out, but I want to be sure – I’d hate for you to have to extra work!

    Whenever you view a recipe through the site through the “View Recipe” screen (NOT the “Recipe Builder”), the recipe is automatically sized for you and your family. It will increase everything as needed to feed you and your family, based on your settings.

    However, whenever you view a recipe in the “Recipe Builder”, it’s always “as entered” – meaning with the same amounts as when the recipe was originally entered. The beauty, and magic, of FormulaZone is – that’s OK. You don’t have to change the size to feed your family – it will automatically do that when you view it through the “View Recipe” screen!

    Hopefully this is helpful. If not, or if you have any questions at all, please send us an e-mail – we truly are glad to help!

    How to I add my private created recipes to my menu plan? I’ve added some to try out, but when I try to select them as part of a menu, only the system recipes are showing.
