I need my recipe’s on my computer please
Hi, you can contact the support here https://mycookbook.zendesk.com/hc if you need some help
Does the document to be imported have to go in this exact order and does spacing matter between the name and the colon (:)? Thank you for this great addition to MyCookBook! I love this product.
Thanks Amanda !
Space is optional between the name and the colon(:)
Description, Ingredients, Directions and Notes must be in this order .
The order of the other fields doesn’t matter
