Categorize recipes as a favorite with 5 stars, or a not-so-favorite with no stars. Once you have recipes rated using the stars, use the Rating Filter pulldown menu on the left to search for all recipes of a particular rating.
Course / Cuisine / Main Ingredient
The Course, Cuisine, and Main Ingredient fields can be used to organize recipes into categories based on the characteristics of the recipe. Edit any of these categories by clicking on the pencil icon that appears to the right of Main Ingredient label.
Any of the categories in these lists can be customized by selecting the [Manage] option, which will be the first option in the list.
Managing an item allows you to remove categories by clicking the trashcan icon, add categories using the field on the top, and change category names.
The yellow circle with the number on the right of the category name indicates how many recipes are contained in that category.
To add a tag, open the recipe and click Edit. Scroll to the middle of the ingredient card and on the right side will be a section labeled “Tags”. Click on the pulldown and select one of the pre-defined tags, or click on [ Manage Tags ] to create your own.
You can add as many tags as you’d like to define a recipe.
Once you have labeled recipes with tags, you can then search your Plan to Eat account for recipes labeled under a certain tag from the left sidebar menu. Or you can click on a tag shown on a recipe card to bring up all the recipes labeled with that tag.
If there is a characteristic of this recipe that doesn't quite fit into the Course, Cuisine, or Main Ingredient categories, use a Tag to identify this unique characteristic. Tags can be anything you would like: Holiday, Allergen Friendly, Deep Fried — it's entirely up to you. Add as many tags as you would like to any recipe.
Searching for recipes based on rating, course, cuisine, or tags
Ratings, Course, Cuisine, and Tags allow for an organized search for groups of related recipes. There are a few ways to search for these recipes once they are categorized.
The easiest way to search is to click on the Tag link that appears on the recipe page itself. This will bring up a list of all recipes with that same Tag.
You can also use the Recipe Filters on the left of the recipe listing to see recipes that use those labels.
