It would be really nice if searching for an ingredient didn't require us to go to a new page, close and then open for the next ingredient. Can we either just open a new window and add all or add all in the same window?

I'd also quite like to be able to add from my own lists, rather than having to go through the database all the time.

I would also like to have the option to go in and change the amount of something, or add a late addition ingredient to the mix. It eleminates the ease of making recipies when you still have to go through 3 pages to add or change something.

Yes! Is a shame that it's sometimes easier to save your recipe as a meal rather than a recipe, because it's easier to manipulate later on. It's easy if you're only making 2 portions, but gets trickier with higher numbers.

Do you think anyone actually reads these suggestions?

Yes, MFP management does take the time to read... plenty!

You can edit your recipes but not through a phone or iPad app. You have to go in through the website. You can also adjust your goal percentages this way too (% carbs etc)

Yes, but the only way to edit an amount is to delete the ingredient and re-add it, which is tedious and annoying.

Yes! I absolutely agree. I often make recipes where one item or another is of variable amount. Unfortunately, unlike the food diary--where amounts can be easily altered--the recipe maker requires me to delete the food and reenter the same food in the same amount. That's just unnecessarily cumbersome. I use the recipe maker extensively, so this really matters.

The food diary is great. With it, I lost 50 pounds over the last year and kept it off. The secret to keeping the weight off is continuing tracking, in my experience.

Good advice. I think I know now that this is actually the neverending story and I'll still be logging in way after I reach my goal weight.

At least when you save a meal the amounts are more easily adjustable there. But saving a meal instead of a recipe isn't always the best option.
