How to get best use of "My Recipes"

I have put a good many recipes into the "My Favourites" category, but then I have to scroll through all the thumbnails seeking inspiration - not the easiest an hour before dinner! Is there a way of seeing a list, or sorted by category? or do I just have to copy them on to my computer?

I would love to use them more often!

How to get best use of 'My Recipes'

Hello hh,

The Your Recipes section was set up before my time at Delia Online. However, we will have a look and see if there is anything we can do to improve it.

Best wishes

My Recipes

Helen,

Would having them in A to Z order be helpful?

alpha order

If you mean of the pics, not really, because if I know the exact name I could just search for it.

But showing a list of just the names - no pics - in alpha order - would let me keep a list on my computer, as I could download it, and it would jog my memory.

Showing far more thumbnails per screen would help, as would dividing them into categories.

Thank you for looking into the issue! I am a retired programmer and do realize how tricky it can be to depart from the original design. The "gold standard" in this kind of thing, to me, is how Fine Cooking handles it, and Epicurious is quite good.

Helen, I meant the title of the recipes to be in A to Z order not the photographs.

My Recipes

Hi Helen,

You are right, for us to make a dramatic change is not possible at the moment.

However, as a compromise we have now been able to list recipes added to Your Favourites in A-Z order as well as adding an extra row of images.

Also all recipes created in the Your Recipes section are now in A-Z order too.

I hope you find that useful, and thanks for getting in touch.
