Your New Recipe Box

And by "new," we mean new and improved!

With a slick new design and features that are easier to use, you'll wonder how you ever lived without this latest and greatest version of Recipe Box.

Here's what's new:




Create and Share Your Personal Recipes

Even if some of your recipes haven't been published on the site yet (or even if you have no plans to publish them at all), you can still create Personal Recipes. Add them to your Recipe Box and share them with friends and family!


    Control Share Settings

    All Recipe Boxes will be automatically set to share so friends and family can see your collection, but you can choose to keep certain recipes private as well.


      Save Recipes from Other Sites

      Create a Weblink to import all information from the outside recipe, which loads it into an Allrecipes page that can be saved like any other Allrecipes recipe.


        Save Recipes and Articles from Magazines and Cookbooks

        Instead of searching through a pile of books and magazines looking for something, create a Reference to keep track of all your "hard copy" favorites. Just make note of the publication, issue, and page number--then, each Reference can be saved to your Recipe Box just like a recipe.


          Your Recipe Box Goes Where You Go on Allrecipes

          In the top right corner of each recipe page, you'll now notice that your most recently added recipes and your Recipe Box will be just one click away.


            See Edited Versions of Recipes

            Reviews are a great way to see how others have changed recipes to be healthier, spicier, etc. Now, you can view Custom Recipes that Supporting Members have created to make those types of changes permanent. (Learn more about becoming a Supporting Member.)


              How Many People Saved This Recipe?

              Now you'll know! Directly under the star rating for each recipe, you'll see how many people have added it to their Recipe Box.

              Go to your new Recipe Box now!

                It would have been nice...if you advised us of the removal of the notes feature...It's really dissapointing...I had tweaked many recipes and now i have lost all the informtation.

                I used to be able to sort recipes into files. All you had to do was check a bunch then select the file. Now it seems I have to do one at a time. Very tedious. Is there a better way? Thanks!

                I, too, was looking for how to edit a review. Looks like your "new and improved" proves the saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Some unhappy people here.

                For all who are missing the "personal note" function, I found it under the My Recipe Box page. If you are viewing all of your recipes at once, the option to "Add a Note" appears in the far right column. Then when you print a recipe you can select the option to include printing your own personal notes. Thanks for making me look for it!

                For those who don't know how to edit a review, click the Rate/Review link on that recipe again, as if you are going to leave another review. There will be a small window that pops up with your original comment with a link to the right that says "Edit".

                I really DISLIKE the new recipe box!! I can't move one folder to another where it belongs and it takes forever to move my saved recipes to the correct folder. I MISS the check the box and move a bunch feature. PLEASE, PLEASE bring it back. This site is now more complicated than it needs, or should, to be....

                I'm having the exact same problem as rainydaycook. I think it started a couple/few weeks ago. I can't save any recipe to my recipe box and I can't open an individual comment unless I click on the button to open all the comments. This is frustrating since I've always been able to do these things and I haven't touched my settings. Help!

                If you can't delete, move or change names of the folders I really don't want to take the time to enter my personal recipes. Does anyone know if this is being worked on and a possibility in the near future?

                Found it! To rename, move or delete a folder try this: open your recipe box; on the left hand side is "MyAllrecipes tools" just a few lines under it is "My folders". Click "My folders" to change.

                I'm trying to delete some folders that are unneccessary. I've read a post about deleting or renaming folders, and I found the "MyAllRecipes" tools, but it won't allow me to access that function. Do you have to be a paying member to be able to delete folders?

                On an ipad2: To add a recipe into a specific folder I first opened the recipe and tapped the save option under the picture. It is now saved into your total recipe box. Click on your recipe box, and your newly saved recipe should be at the top of your entire recipe list that have been previously saved. Tap the recipe so an option box appears. Click on the option box and a list of options will appear. The first option should be "Add to folder". Click this option and another little box will appear and will allow you to add this recipe in the folder of your choice.

                I'd really like to be able to remove a couple of reviews I've left. Once or twice I've accidentally clicked on a star while viewing a page, even though I never made the recipe. Likewise, I have a few recipes that I reviewed on accident because they had very similar names to other dishes. Is there a way to do this? I know how to edit my reviews but it would be cleaner to be able to delete them when they are not at all applicable to me.
                 
                Jan. 17, 2013 2:00 pm
                Oops, while I guess the accidental clicks don't save until you hit "submit" (which is good). But I still have a couple that I reviewed on accident because I confused two dishes, and I'd love to delete them! :)

                I've tried the previously mentioned way to edit a review, and it doesn't work for me. I reviewed an excellent recipe. Even though I made the recipe as is, I tried to help by explaining a step that some were having trouble understanding. While doing so, I made a mistake in one of my suggestions which will ruin the recipe completely!! I don't want to ruin a recipe for the author or new cooks. Help!

                I am unable to import a recipe from my email. I follow the directions exactly, but my choices for what to open the attachment with are kindle, dropbox and print and scan. Recipe Box does not show up. Does the email need to be in a specific format? If so, what is it? I'm very frustrated. Also can't I access my recipe box from my computer? I've tried and just can't do it.

                I made a folder I did not intend to. I've read that holding your cursor over the file name would bring up options which would eventually lead me to delete folder. This was not so. I've tried everything but nothing seems to work. It is an eyesore to look at and makes me not even want to get on anymore. I NEED HELP DESPERATELY!
