Hi guys!  Did you know that any recipe can be saved in your Recipe Box as a Personal Recipe?  Once you have entered and saved a Personal Recipe, you can print it out, email it to a friend, share it on your profile, upload a photo of it, and even submit it to become a Kitchen Approved Recipe!

To add Personal Recipes to your Recipe Box, follow these steps:
·  Start by logging into your account and accessing your Recipe Box. 
·  Next, click on the ‘Options’ menu at the top of the page.  Select “Add Personal Recipe.”
·   Enter your recipe information in the fields provided. 

Use one line per ingredient when you enter ingredients.
When you enter Directions, do not number the steps.  Each line will be automatically numbered for you!  Use one line per step.

Don't forget to add a photo! 

Select how you’d like to publish your recipe.  You have three options:  Publish on your profile so that others can see it, publish on your profile AND submit for consideration as a Kitchen Approved recipe, or publish privately so that only you can see it.

Click “Preview.” From the preview page, you have the option to Edit, Cancel, or Save.  If you’re happy with your work, click “Save Recipe.”  The recipe will appear in your Recipe Box! 

Note that Personal Recipes are not connected to our database, so scaling and nutrition information are not available.   But you can add Personal Recipes to your Shopping List.  They will be added to the bottom of your list in an "Other Items" section.

If you have any questions about this feature, email customersupport@allrecipes.com.  Happy cooking!

About Me
Allrecipes.com is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, Allrecipes.com is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Allrecipes.com Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at m.allrecipes.com.
My favorite things to cook
Everything and anything! Allrecipes community is an amazing resource for discovering all types of dishes and treats
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of them! How could anyone choose? All year long our community is cooking and celebrating seasonal holidays and special family occasions. Even the dinners we all have to get on the table every night can be a cherished tradition—or will seem so once the kids are grown.
My cooking triumphs
The millions of recipe choices, the tips and advice, the support and encouragement to try new things or rediscover old favorites make using this site a constant joy.
My cooking tragedies
Who doesn’t have these? Too many to tell really, but from each disaster there’s something to learn and laugh about. Cooking is meant to be an adventure!
