Feature of the Week: Shopping List 
Nov. 14, 2012 2:22 pm 

With the Shopping List feature, you’ll never be caught without soy sauce again (as long as you add it to your Shopping List).  You can use the Shopping List feature in two easy ways.

1.  Be sure you are logged into your Allrecipes account, click the orange arrow next to the Save button to expand the save options. Select Shopping List. Like saving a recipe to your recipe box, you can save a recipe to a specific shopping list. Simply select the + next to Shopping List and you will see a dropdown list of all of the shopping lists available. From the recipe page, you also have the option to choose which ingredients you’d like to add to your shopping list. Check the box next to the ingredients you’d like to add to your Shopping List. You can also use the Check All button if you’d like to add all the ingredients to your Shopping List. After you’ve selected the ingredients, click on Add Checked. To view your Shopping List, click on the Shopping Lists tab in the top right corner of the page, and then on View All Shopping Lists.

2.  Create a Shopping List from scratch. Click on the Shopping Lists tab in the top right corner of the page, and then on View All Shopping Lists. At the top of the page, click on the Options menu and then on Create New. You can then add recipes to this Shopping List.

Need to remove some items from your Shopping List?  You can either delete a recipe, which will subsequently delete all associated ingredients from the list, or you can delete individual ingredients.

To delete an entire recipe: 

Click on the Shopping Lists tab in the top right corner of any page.
Click on View All Shopping Lists.

Click on the Edit link located next to the Recipes heading at the top of your Shopping List. 

Click on the X next to a recipe to delete that recipe from your Shopping List.

Click on the Save button to save your changes.

To delete individual ingredients: 

From your Shopping List, click on the Edit link next to the Grocery Items heading.

From here, you can decide which ingredients you would like to delete by clicking on the X next to each listed ingredient.

Click on the Save button at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

Need to add or modify items on your Shopping List?  
To add:  Select a grocery aisle from the Add grocery item to list drop-down menu and select the desired items. Or, you can enter your own item to the list by typing in the desired item in the open text field and select Add to shopping list.

To modify:  Select edit to delete, edit item, or to modify the recipe serving. 

If you are in edit mode, once you are happy with your list select Save to save your shopping list. 

Supporting Members have the option to create Shopping Lists for Menus.  As you create a menu, your shopping list will automatically be created. Once you have finished creating your menu, click Save Menu on the far right. 
Once you have saved your menu, click Add to Shopping List. (Please note—if you make a change to the menu, and then re-save it, and click Add to Shopping List again, all of the items will be added to the shopping list for a second time.) You will be able to choose to create a new shopping list for the menu, or add the menu to one of your existing shopping lists.

There are two ways to add a complete menu to an existing shopping list. 

From the Menu editing page, click Save Menu and then Add to Shopping List. You will be able to choose the existing shopping list you would like to add the menu to. 

From any menu detail page, click the + next to Add to Shopping List. You will see a dropdown menu with a list of your existing shopping lists. Select the shopping list you wish to update.

If you have questions about Shopping Lists, or any Allrecipes.com 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!
