  • Is there any way to edit a Note or Custom Recipe once it’s in the collection? Or is the only way to delete/add new? (If not, can I add that as a feature request?) ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, how do you “save” once you add a new recipe to a collection? Sometimes I navigate away and then my changes are lost. Thanks!!

    • I’ve already asked my developer for the ability to edit notes Elizabeth – great minds ๐Ÿ™‚

      And I’ve had the same problem navigating away and it telling me that my changes are lost. But when I reload the collections page and open the collection again the changes are saved – will see what I can do to make this less clunky – thanks for asking!

      If you want to edit a custom recipe – just email me and I can do it on the back end. Also best to add custom recipe via the submit your recipes form rather than in the collections because they don’t save for future use if you add to a specific collection.

      So glad you’re playing around with all the features!

  • I created a shopping list and saved it, but now the page doesn’t want me to leave, even though the “Save Shopping List” button is greyed out.
    โ€œThis page is asking you to confirm that you want to leave โ€“ data you entered may not have been saved.โ€
    If I ignore this message and come back, then the amended list is still there, but I still get the message when I try to leave.

    • Yes I’ve been getting this too Mark – thanks for letting me know it’s not just me! Will have to dig deeper to see what’s going on with it.

  • You mentioned experimenting with โ€˜nachoโ€™ recipes, I found one that me and my husband love. Take mini-peppers, cut them in half, bake @325 for 10 mins. Add a teaspoon of cream cheese, teaspoon of cheddar cheese, a sprinkling of bacon bits, a little hot sauce. Bake 10 more mins. Serve!

  • I’m having difficulty commenting in most other places on this site – ‘You are not allowed to view comments on this post.’

    Could your tech person look into this? Thanks.

  • I saved my collection then upped the serving size to 3 which when I click on my meal plan for this week does seem to have saved, however when I generate the shopping list, it reverts to 2 and only shows ingredient amounts in the shopping list for 2. Am I doing something wrong?

    • So sorry Tara!

      There was a problem with the meal planning software that was causing errors like this.

      Would you be able to try again?

      Just make sure you choose the ‘regenerate shopping list’ option to get the calculations for the correct number of serves.

      Sorry it’s not easier first time ๐Ÿ™‚

      Let me know how you get on.

  • Greetings, Jules! Love the new meal plans site! Lots of information that is easy to manipulate.

    Noticed that the US customary link doesnโ€™t work. Doesnโ€™t convert measurements to ounces, etc.

    I am using my iPhone with iOS13.

    Canโ€™t wait to try new recipes this week.

    • Excellent Ken!

      Sorry the measurement link isn’t working on your phone – I just checked and it’s not working on my phone either! Will get my developer to look into it. It is working for recipes on Stonesoup though so I think it’s to do with a software update. aah technology!

  • Hi Jules, I am very curious about your Simple Meal Plans website address ending with โ€˜.toโ€™ What is โ€˜.toโ€™ short for? Thanks.

    • It’s short for Tonga I think John. I like the idea of going to the website – and keeping the url super simple! PS> I made your avocado flat bread on the weekend – Baked in the oven and they were good but needed some more experimenting. Thank you for the idea!

      • Thanks for trying the recipe on the weekend. Any alterations that you think will improve the recipe for everyone, is OK by me.

  • dear jules

  • Made “Livvieโ€™s I-Canโ€™t-Believe-Itโ€™s-Not-Chicken Stew” today. Changed spinach to half Kale and Arugula and some summer squash from my garden. Added can of tomato and a tiny bit of cream. It was very good. Did need a ton of seasoning, so I added some old bay spice for chicken and a little chicken stock. Very very yummy!

    Now, if I can find time to understand he new meal plan content, I would love to get started! Thanks for your help!

  • Hi Jules,
    I’m having trouble selecting recipes as favourites. I’ve tried touching the star symbol on the recipe and it won’t register. I was trying to to favourite the Burgers with My int & Almond Salsa recipe.
    Cheers,
    Jan.

    • Sorry you had problems Jan!

      The star symbol on the recipe is to rate the recipe out of 5.

      To add save the recipe as a favourite you need to click on the ‘add to inbox’ icon (next to the print icon) near the recipe title.

      It will then get saved to your recipe inbox collection and you can use it from there.

      Does that help?

      Sorry it’s a bit confusing,

      • Jules, does that work if it’s one of the meal plan recipes? I’ve been trying to save the ones I am trying on their own in my inbox, but nothing is happening. The checkbox is selected for the individual recipe, but it’s not showing up on its own, only in a meal plan. The problem is trying to go back and find one without having to click on every meal plan. Colleen

  • I like the new format. I took some getting used to, but now I don’t want it any other way. I’m starting to build up a collection of favorites to put into my meal plans. Keep up the good work Jules

    • So glad you’ve enjoying it Jeroen!

      If you think of anything that would make it easier to use – I’m all ears ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You can do it Patricia! Let me know if there are any specific things you are struggling with. I can make a special training video for you if you need extra help. It will be worth the learning curve I promise ๐Ÿ™‚

  • hi jules! i’m trying out the new features with collections and i’m having some trouble. i removed some recipes from the collection and added a few new ones, but when i click on the “shopping list” it seems to only generate based on the original meal plan – it doesn’t account for my changes. the same happens if i even just change the # servings for existing recipe within the original meal plan. is there a “save” button i’m missing or anything like that?

    also, is there any way to get the variations to show up if i add new recipes? it helps if they show so that i can edit the shopping list more easily (on the same page).

    thanks!!

    • so glad you’re trying the new format Elizabeth! Sorry you’ve had problems.

      Here’s what you need to do.

      1. Save the meal plan to your collections (which I assume you’ve done).
      2. Edit the meal plan as you like. Add / remove things.
      3. Click on shopping list. This will generate the standard list based on the original plan.
      4. Click on regenerate shopping list – it will then ask which units you want to use and if you want to include ingredient notes (choose yes to this).
      5. It will then update the shopping list with your choices.
      6. Save your new shopping list. Then you can edit or share it.

      Sorry this is a bit clunky – will see what I can do to make it generate the shopping list from your changes first.

      And with the variation notes – I add them in manually so if you want to include a different recipe, you’ll need to look at that recipe page to see the variations. Will add to my list for future versions ๐Ÿ™‚

      Does that help?
