  1. I liked recieving the emails, they just were too frequent! Perhaps if you sent them less often, it would be alright.

    I liked receiving the emails, but they were a little too frequent. Maybe a monthly update would be better?
    Thanks!

      I've contacted your people and they never fixed the problem. I've responded with the specs and no one contacted me. That's why I've un-subscribed.

        Hello Jessie,

        My apologies for not responding after receiving those details from you. We are still actively trying to find a fix for the annoying issue you’re experiencing. I’ll be certain to keep you up to date.

        Are you willing to try uninstalling our app and then reinstalling to see if that might fix the issue?

        Best wishes,
        Sami

      • Save preferences such as vegetarian, vegan, without dairy

        Save preferences so they are automatically included in the search for example if you're vegetarian you can search "pasta" and only vegetarian options come up every time you search

          Thanks a bunch for this idea. Saving preferences sounds like a very useful feature. We’ll keep this in mind! Other than “vegetarian,” “vegan,” and “without dairy,” are there other search criteria you’d be interested in filtering by?

          Thanks again, and please let us know if you have any other suggestions!

        • Convert metric to U.S. measurements and vice versa

          Some recipes use grams instead of cups. It would be great to click on a button and have it automagically generate the user's preferred measurement system.

                Hi Tobin!

                Thanks for the suggestion, video would be great, step by step instruction (with a pause button!), I know that would certainly help me! My recipes rarely resemble the final photo in a book or online. Perhaps I am missing a step or two?

                Do you have a favorite recipe site that currently uses video? If so, please share it with us.

                Any other suggestions now that you have had the day to play?

                Thanks!

                  Thanks a bunch for this idea. We agree, a shopping list feature sounds like it would be very useful. We’ll definitely consider it! Do you have any other ideas for the site?

                    Thanks so much for your feedback! While it’s currently not possible to add a food blog to your recipe feed on Foodily, that sounds like a great idea. I’ll share your feedback with the team and we’ll keep this in mind!

                    Thanks again, and please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any other ideas or feedback.

                    People can post their own recipes for friends to see.If I'm known for the best chocolate cake around, wouldn't it be great to share that within my foodily friend community?

                    And also, I'm craving a sensible place to store my own recipes, so I don't have five different places to look when I want to be inspired!

                      It would be nice to have a place where we can put our own recipes. I have a lot of recipes but have no where online to save them. It would be nice if there was a feature for that

If you have a recipe blog please send it our way and we can index your recipes for you. Otherwise we’ll be in touch if we make the addition of recipes open to users.

                            Hi Cate,

                            Thanks so much for your note. While you’re right, the main search bar isn’t labelled “with,” you should be able to type a string of ingredients into the main search box to see recipes that call for all of those ingredients. For example, check out http://foodily.com/s/chicken-onion-tomato-basil Does this work for you?

                            Thanks again for letting us know that this was confusing. Do you have any suggestions on how we can make it clearer that you can type a list of ingredients into the main search bar?

                              Thanks for the suggestion. We agree recipe suggestions might take a lot of time out of the act of actually “searching” for recipes that might interest you.

                              We will certainly review!

                              Once again, we appreciate your feedback!

                              allow people to create their own tags vs. having to use ones defined by you - it's constricting.

                                    Hi tempfree,

                                    Thanks a bunch for this idea. We agree — it’d be awesome to annotate recipes with additional instructions. We’ll keep this in mind for the future!

                                    Do you have any other ideas about how we can improve Foodily?

                                    Thanks again for your suggestion!

                                    I hate when I'm searching for a chocolate cake recipe and I get a result for a specific type of chocolate cake where the first ingredient is "1 box of Devil's Food cake." If I wanted to bake from a mix, I'd follow the recipe on the box! Or a dip recipe which includes "Onion soup mix." Can you create a feature to omit these results?

                                      Hi Kate,

                                      Thanks a bunch for your note! A feature that omits mixes and prepackaged foods sounds like it’d be very useful. We’ll share you feedback with the team and keep this in mind.

                                      In the meantime, try typing the words, “mix” or “box” into the without box to exclude recipes with those kinds of prepackaged ingredients. Check out: http://foodily.com/s/chocolate-cake-without-mix Does that work?

                                      Thanks again, and please don’t hesitate to share any other ideas you have for the site!

                                          I can totally relate to this one, what is quinoa anyway? ha! I did look that up on Wikipedia.

                                          It is a great idea, we will review it for sure.

                                            We have had several suggestions for video, would that be of interest to you? Then one could see and hear!
