How do I send in my recipes as Recipe Uploads to be added to my account by Dish Dish?
If you are a Dish Dish Pro member or have purchased Recipe Uploads through the store, simply scan or take a picture of the recipe you want to add and email it to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or make copies and mail to us at 2230 Morriss Rd, Ste 100-173, Flower Mound, TX 75028. Within 1-2 business days, we will have your recipe added to your account for you.
Can I keep a recipe Private, so others cannot view or access it?
Yes, when you enter a recipe, at the bottom of the page (before saving), you will have the option of keeping it Private or allowing the Public to view it. You can still “share” a Private recipe as desired, by clicking on the “Tell a Friend” next to the title of the recipe at any time, and sending a direct link for them to view.
Private recipes are not viewed by others when they follow a link to your cookbook or view your recipes through “Friends Cookbook” links. Only your public recipes will be visible to others when they view your cookbook link or Friends Cookbook.
At this time, the only way to share a collection of private recipes with a group is by having everyone share the same login username and password.
How do I edit one of my recipes?
When you select that recipe and open it, click on the “Edit Recipe” button.
Why do I have to add ingredients one at a time?
This allows capability for doubling, tripling or halving a recipe, for example; it also allows ingredients to be added to shopping list.
How do I share a recipe?
While viewing the recipe you wish to share, click on any of the share button options (email, FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) located directly beneath the recipe photo.
How do I share my entire cookbook?
While logged in, click on “My Cookbook” in the top right portion of the page, and then choose “Share Cookbook to a Friend” from the menu board of options. This will open up a dialogue box with a link to your cookbook and an option to email the link to a friend. That generated link can be copied and pasted and shared however you like.
How do I add a video to my recipe?

How do I delete a recipe I posted?

How do I upload a photo with the recipe?
Please make sure the photo you add with the recipe is a photo you have permission to use (not copyrighted).
When first entering a recipe – While adding the recipe , choose a file from your computer to upload under the “Add an Image” portion of the page.
When editing an existing recipe – if you want to add a picture later, simply open your recipe, click on the “Edit Recipe” box located under the “Directions” area, and choose “Change / Add Image” on that page to upload the photo.
Because the images are 580×340 pixels, landscape format pictures will upload better than portrait style pictures.
How do I delete a photo from a recipe?
Open your recipe, select the “Edit Recipe” button from below the Directions; scroll down to “Change/Add an Image” and select to do so, then do not select a file to be uploaded as a new image. Instead, scroll down to bottom of page and select “Update Recipe”. The picture will be deleted.
