So I downloaded this because I love food and basically thought it was like Pandora but for recipes. The problem is, I can't figure out which button saves recipes because the only things clearly labeled are the recipes themselves. Any suggestions, please?

so the first unlabeled button after a recipe "yums" it. if you "yum" a recipe, yummly will find related recipes to the ones you have "yummed". the second button doesn't work. this button should put the ingredients for the recipe on the shoping list. if you want to put the ingredients of a recipe on the Shopping list, go to the menu, then on my collection and select "all yums". there you have a "product to list" button before a recipe. for example:
Product to list button
home made bagles
Mel's kitchen cafe
the last Thing "mel's kitchen cafe" is the blog from wich the recipe was taken. if you want to get the ingredients and directions for the recipes, you can click on a recipe and then there is a ingredients and a directions button. note that if you click on the directions button, it will open the blog from the recipe.
hope this helps

That answers my question exactly. :) I'd figured out the recipes, but I didn't want to have to copy them if I didn't have to.
