Recipe search

Options
It'd be really helpful to be able to search my recipes. I don't seem to find a search bar where I can just put in what I'm looking for and it'd bring recipes up.

    You can search them on the app. If it's not working I put them in alphabetical order on the website. It's a bit annoying with 650+ recipes 😂 but it's doable.

    Are you talking about Recipe Discovery (which I do not use) or My Meals, Recipes & Foods? The search for the latter is right at the top, but like Scarlett says, it doesn't always work. I seem to have problems mostly with pulling up my older recipes.

    I also think it would be good to be able to search the recipes. I want to try homemade granola but it's a nightmare trawling through categories. I'll resort, yet again, to the good old Internet.

    It seems to defeat the purpose of putting my own recipes into my page if I can't find them again later. I have 30+ pages of recipes. There is no way to find specific ones that I want to put back into my rotation. This is surely an easy fix that mfp doesn't want to do (?)

    This is exactly my problem. I have accumulated 35 pages of my own recipes. This shouldn't be such a difficult thing to do. Seriously.

    I have a feeling whoever is running MFP has very little interest in updating the browser version of MFP, considering how many updates they do of the app.
