While you cannot link two recipes, you can divide a recipe into different parts. This is especially helpful when your recipes call for different recipes within one recipe: marinade, sauce, frosting, etc.

The Notes section on an ingredient can also be used as a header for the next recipe you want to include.
You can either create a note in the line-input format, or in the bulk input, you can add a comma before the heading, ie: ,Sauce

Line-Item Input Instructions:

  1. Open the "main" recipe and click the icon to edit the ingredients.
  2. Add an additional ingredient to the ingredient list (using the button at the bottom of the list).
  3. In the Note section of that ingredient (the farthest to the right) add the heading for your second recipe: Frosting, Marinade, Sauce, etc.
  4. Add the ingredients for the second recipe, below the Note/header.
  5. Press Save.

Bulk Input Instructions: 

  1. Open the "main" recipe and click the icon to edit the ingredients.
  2. Select the "Bulk Input" tab.
  3. On a new line, type in your recipe header with a comma in front. ie: ,Frosting
  4. Add the ingredients for the second recipe, below the Note/header (can be copy pasted in through bulk input).
  5. Press Save.

The Note then becomes a sub-heading for your second recipe within the main recipe.

You may want to simply copy and paste the ingredients for your "sub" recipe into the "main" recipe that calls for it. This will allow you to keep both recipes in your recipe book, and also be able to use them together.

 

Additionally, you can use Menus to save a group of recipes to be planned together. You can save a Menu for a single mealtime, which is an alternative way to link recipes you'd like to plan simultaneously.
