    • improve freezer management

      Hi,
      I would love to have a few features added for freezer.

      1. I'd like to add an inventory of ingredients that are in the freezer. For example, I have a filet of salmon and a roast and some frozen veggies. It would be great to see an inventory of what's on hand quickly so that I could remember to use things before they sit too long.

      2. I'd like to add meals to the freezer without creating a recipe for them and without adding them on the planner. I have a homemade lasagne in there, and I don't want…

      • PLAN tab should default to MY RECIPES (it should not default to FRIENDS recipes)

        When I click on COOK, the left column defaults to MY RECIPES.

        When I click on PLAN, the left column defaults to FRIENDS, and I constantly have to move back to MY RECIPES every single time I go into the planner.

        • calendar - ease of use

          Love your program!!
          I would LOVE the ability to CONTINUOUSLY SCROLL up/down through the planning calendar to the next month instead of having to go up to the top of the page and change to the next planning month. As I plan, I do a lot of swapping out of meals depending on our family calendar and it is cumbersome to have to go back to the top each time and switch out the month. But if it had the scrolling ability I would be able to see the middle of January through the middle of February, etc. thanks for…

          • Add functionality to bold items in recipes. It would make it easier to delineate among different parts of the recipes.

            Add functionality to bold items in recipes. It would make it easier to delineate among different parts of the recipes.

            It would also be nice if there were a space between the ingredient list and the start of the instructions for the recipe. That would make it more readable.

            • Mute ingredients so they are never added to Shopping List

              I would like to be able to "mute" certain ingredients in recipes so that they are never added to the shopping list. For example, "ice water", "salt", "pepper" or "olive oil" - things that I always have on hand or that I would add to a list using the Staples feature.

                  • Remove the star rating for reviews; incorporate favorites

                    The 5-star rating system for recipes seems pointless. I either like what I made or I don't.

                    Why not instead remove the 5-star rating, and just put a star/marker to denote a particularly favorite recipe, rather than rely on a tag?

                    • Able to export nutritional information to MyFitnessPal

                      Communicating with MyFitnessPal. I know this needs to be done more on their end but having the option of importing recipes to MFP though PTE would be extremely helpful.

                      • "I made this and this is what I changed" option that doesn't alter original recipe

                        I would like to be able to check the "I made this" button (vs planned X number of times) and also have a place to make a quick note of any changes without changing the original recipe (substitutions, etc.). I rarely follow a recipe exactly and when I make a tweak that works (or doesn't!) I'd like a reminder the next time I look at it.

                          • Partner with OurGroceries.com for shopping list management

                            PTE's greatest strength is recipe management and meal planning. It's truly the most well though-out and user-friendly browser-based system that I've seen -- and I recommend it constantly.

                            But PTE's shopping list management system is painful at best, and approaching insufferable at worst. It is by far the weakest aspect of the entire PTE system, and feels like it was coded by people who've never used shopping list management systems before. (Sorry programmers, but really, it hurts to use.)

                            Conversely, the OurGroceries.com system has a "shopping list management" system that is absolutely phenomenal, but "recipe management" section that is truly…

                                          While I'm planning out my month, it's really helpful to know when I'll need to start prepping a meal that day. I've added prep notes on a lot of my own recipes; however, the monthly challenges (and friends' recipes) are more of a struggle. Some recipes are crock pot/slow cooker recipes, and it's easy to get caught by surprise.
