Welcome to SparkPeople!

As long as you are entering those types of recipes for yourself (not adding them to the shared database), then it's okay to add them. You just want to make sure you don't check the box for "Submit My Recipe to SparkPeople's Shared Recipes Database."

As for when you eat at a friends house or something like that, you would just need to do your best to guess at what it is and serving size (you can try searching the food database in the Nutrition Tracker for items too).

Hope that helps!

Hi - I'm obviously new, but had a question about the sparkpeople recipe calculator -- it states on the page not to submit recipes that you got from another source (blog, cookbook, etc) but then how do I go about calculating the nutritional value of those recipes?
Also, what do you do when you have no idea - like at a company get together or acquaintance's house or something like that when you won't have access to the recipe? Do you just guess?
