Customize recipes for families, couples, large or small groups. This app does what a regular cookbook can't--instantly scales all ingredients based on number of guests coming to dinner!
● Also converts between Metric & US measures
++Featured by Apple in Party Planner, Apps for Foodies++
Easily convert entire recipes using serving sizes--no more fraction math! Save favorites and revise recipe for latest guest size in a snap.
● Got a family of 5? Scale 4 serving recipes to 5--less leftovers than just doubling a recipe. A lifesaver especially for parents on a budget.
● Holiday dinner guest lists change yearly. Change 6-serving recipe to 14 one year, then to 9 the next.
● Dinner for 1 tonight, but you don't want 3 days of leftovers. Convert that 4 serving recipe to a 1-person meal.
● You're catering a big event for 100. Scale up an 8 serving recipe for a crowd. Serving Sizer™ Recipe Manager will calculate the right amounts to buy and make. Resize for a different sized group next time.
● Sure, anyone can double a recipe from 4 to 8 servings, but what if you have 10 people coming and don't want to run out of meat? Calculate how many pounds to buy for your dinner party.
● Got a cookbook from Europe, and amounts are all in metric? Serving Sizer Recipe Manager can help here too--one tap toggle to change between US and Metric units

Ratings and Reviews
From what I read in some of the reviews, apparently the name of the app is a bit deceiving. But it was actually just what I was looking for. I wanted an app that I could put my own recipes in and change the serving sizes without a hassle. Now, if they'd let me add my own pictures, it'd be perfect! I know it takes some time to enter long recipes, but it's on an iPhone so what do you expect? Maybe one day the developers can make a web connection thru wifi where we can enter recipes by copy/paste on the web and it show up on the device. But for now, I just want to be able to add pictures from my library.
It doesn’t seem like it should be so hard to make a recipe converter. This app is extremely difficult to use and very time consuming. You have to enter the entire recipe manually. I would think they would have figured a way for you to simply upload a recipe and go from there. I cook for our homeless shelter and need to feed 100 people per recipe. I was hoping this would make it easier but I hardly use it because it’s so difficult to use. Waste of my money!
Good, unless you add a recipe
Love this app. However, after I added a new recipe, noticed that the search box for ingredients is hidden - so unable to type in the box and select an ingredient; need to type a new name every time.
