I would like to see the MFP automatically enter the serving info from the recipes section into the food section. Also, my wife and I both log but if I create a recipe, I have to go through the process of entering it into her MFP so that she can get the nutrition info to log correctly. There should be a way to enter the recipe info into the overall database so that couples and others can get the info.

If you create a recipe in your account and then log a serving of the recipe to your food diary that is "shared' so your wife can see it, she simply has to view YOUR diary while logged into HER account and click quick tools > copy to today (website route) to copy the nutritional info of the recipe to her diary and you've only had to enter the recipe once.

Once it's in her diary she can change the serving size, or again click quick tools > remember meal if it's something you may use regularly.

Do note that if you're using all 6 meal slots she'll have to activate all 6 to be able to copy from all your meals properly

Since it's useful and I left it out I'll just comment again and add that it can also be done on some of the Apps.

Android, iPad and iPhone you view a shared diary and click the wrench / spanner in the header with the meal name and click copy to today.

Android got this feature in either May or June 2012 and the iOS devices have had it for a full year now... the feature was brought to the website in Nov 2012.
