    • 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…

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • Create a User Forum

              There are lots of ways that users have found to maximize the features already existing in PTE. A user forum where members could logon and share that information or ask questions of other users would be very helpful and possibly reduce the number of duplicate enhancement requests. For example, the suggestion by Clint to create a 'virtual store' to house regular Pantry items does the shopping list much more manageable. I am sure other users have other shortcuts they have created and it would be great if we could share them with each other. Currently, the only way we can…

              • Recurring Recipes on Plans

                A recurring recipe feature would be nice. When I find a recipe I like, I like to plan it every couple of weeks (because the more you make a recipe the easier it gets). I also like to make sure to squeeze in the easy go-tos like spaghetti and tacos so if I could just schedule them every other tuesday or something like that, it would be nice.

                  Thanks for suggesting this! We currently have a feature called Menus that allow you to save a grouping of recipes, notes, ingredients, and events already on your planner for future or recurring use. Once you save a menu you can easily drag it to your planner just like recipes. You can create menus from your planner for one day (or one note), a full or week, or even an entire month or more. This article will show you how: https://feedback.plantoeat.com/knowledgebase/articles/294729-using-menus-with-the-meal-planner

                • Create Menu without having to first calendar the recipes

                  Group handful of recipes together as a "Meal". The current "Menu" option forces you to select all the recipes from a given day. I'd like to be able to assemble a "Meal" with the recipes from only, say, supper. Or I'd like to be able to create a "Meal" independent of the Planner, by dragging in Recipes onto a Meal without putting them on the calendar.

                  • Made TODAY and Weeks till next Repeat

                    I like the idea of recently planned, but what would make my little heart sing are two things...

                    One.. simply a date when I made a recipe (i.e. like a little button that you click that says "I just made this")...and poof...there's today's date. How does this help? Not all recipes are going to make it to my menu planner (i.e. on the spur of the moment I crave pumpkin bread) AND it also allows me to search within date parameters for a recipe. Say, you want to know what you made last fall, you enter the dates 9/1/2015 -9/30/2015…

                    • Shop My Stock List

                      Have Multiple Stock Lists for things I have already. If I can type in what I already have in my fridge, freezer, and pantry so that I can "shop my stock" before creating a shopping list.

                      • Edit categories when importing a recipe

                        I'd like to be able to manage my courses, cuisine, tags, etc. in import mode on a website. There are times when I want to add a new category, but have to import a recipe first and then go back to PTE and manage the category. It makes sense that you could do this at the time of import.

                          • Tag Shopping List Items with Question Mark to Check If You Already Have Them

                            I often plan meals and create my shopping list when I'm away from home and I can't always remember which ingredients I already have on hand. I'd like the ability to tag items on the shopping list with a question mark and then view this Question Mark List of items with an easy way to check off whether they should stay on the shopping list or be removed.

                              Having the ability to "Batch Delete" recipes.

                              Right now, to delete a recipe it is a multi-step process per recipe. For those with new dietary restrictions or sensitivities the ability to batch delete recipes would be awesome and add great functionality.

                                been using your program for a month now, and just subscribed for a year. I like the freezer feature a lot, but have a few suggestions:
                                1. I'd like to be able to add something to the freezer from the Recipe as well as from the planner. I cook in advance, so don't always put something on planner before I am freezing it
                                2. I'd like the ability to edit what I put in the freezer (I just messed one up when I entered it, but can't see how to edit or delete in order to fix it).
                                3. Would…

                                    I shop 2 weeks at a time. I don't buy my fresh produce that early because it spoils. It would be nice to be able to select and add to a New Shopping List (To Shop in 1 week) then have the option of printing or emailing the list.

                                    • Merge by category

                                      I would like a way to merge ingredients on my shopping list by category not just the whole list. Example issue my chuck roast says 12lbs total but it is for 5 recipes (4@2 lbs, 1@4 lbs) plus one of my recipes needs cut into cubs. With it all combined I don't know what to tell my butcher. My list is to long and I would have to add up items like broth, tomato past and pepper that is in everything if I don't combine my list.

                                      • save recipe button

                                        Create a button script that bloggers can use to attach to their online recipes so that a reader is prompted to save the recipe to their P2E account. You can see what I mean on this recipe (http://www.thecookierookie.com/carmelized-onion-bacon-dip/) which links to MealPlannerPro.com. I love the idea of this, but I'm a loyal P2E user and I'd love to send my readers to you instead of some other planner! Making it easy for bloggers to do this would only increase awareness of your awesome app!!

                                        To make it really easy, create a Wordpress Plugin for recipe publishing that includes…

                                          I appreciate your philosophy about PTE being "a place to store your favorite recipes not ours.", but as a brand new user, it would be so much better if there were lists of great family recipes to choose from to start. Sure I'll add my own over time, but for now I have to scour the interwebs and pick recipes I know nothing about to get started? Nope. As a dude and a Dad, I don't want to be searching the web for recipes. It looks like you have a great service here, but without an offering of at least…
