I haven't been here at AR in a while and I see a lot of changes. Am I still able to see my own review in a recipe that I made in the past? Usually I like to check the changes I made in a recipe. Thank you!

Youhave to do one of a few things. Scroll through all the recipes, find it on your "reviews" list, or (easiest way for most) if it's in your recipe box you can click on your star rating to bring up your review to read and/or edit. If it's not there you can add it to do this more easily and then delete if you don't want to keep it. Nice, huh? :)

You can also do the obvious and scroll through aaaallllll the reviews on a recipe to find yours but in most cases that takes too long and if you were looking to edit your review, you can't do it from there

Thanks Linda! Your 1st option seems easier. I just want to make a cookie recipe that I made last year... but I like to check my review before I make it again.

It's a pain, F&H M! I hope they can fix that so we can see our own reviews easier! Hey, we miss you around here.

Nice to "see" you again. I've missed seeing your healthy tweaks to the recipes.

Thank you Patches! I still come here, but I haven't made any new recipe in a while.... have been using the old ones saved in my "recipe box".

I don't understand the difference, or else I never knew an easy way. I just click on My Allrecipes and then I missing something?

Maggi- a person used to be able to tell from the recipe page whether they had reviewed it and easily click on it to read or edit it. No looking around. Now it shows like you never reviewed something and lets you basically overwrite it without knowing you're doing so. With only 35 reviews, it's probably a little more manageable for you to do it that way but for those that have hundreds it's a pain in the patootie :)

Oh my gosh, Linda!! I never knew that trick, darn it all! Now that I do, I am ticked I didn't know and more ticked it's gone - LOL!!!!! Hope someone tells us if it reappears! Thanks so much!

AR has made LOTS of changes and most are either annoying or don't work well. It used to be you could simply bring up a recipe and click 'review' and IF you previously revied it, that would show up and you could modify it. Apparently the person who changed it around to how it works now had no idea how we use that feature.
We do our best to make sure that Allrecipes user contributions are appropriate, but if you see anything questionable, please let us know so we can address the issue.
