When creating a new recipe, we give you the power to decide when the recipe is complete and ready for use in meal planning or food logs. After you have added all of the ingredients and instructions, you then have two selections to proceed: 'Mark Recipe Complete' and 'Save Recipe In Progress'. The selection for 'Save Recipe in Progress' will save the recipe for you, but not yet make it available in planning. This is if you wish to save the recipe but come back at a later time to finish editing. When you are finished with a recipe and ready to use it, select Mark Recipe Complete and this will finalize the recipe and then make it available in any recipe search.
