  1. Choices for diet type

    This site is great! If there could be inclusions for vegan/vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, someone earlier suggested low fat, diabetic then the site would be really great! Thanks!

  2. 1st impression

    This seems to have great potential in my opinion. I did have a little trouble at first but after a few minutes looking around, I really like the options of haveing the stores In my area available for what's on sale. I like the fact when you save several recipes in the shopping list, the ingredients have the recipe name beside it so if you are shopping for more than one recipe, you know which one what goes into. I do not necessarily use the dietary info although I probably need to. Just can't ever understand them. So I don't…

  3. a quick suggestion -

    I think it would be nice if you give people the option to un-select certain types of food in the meal planner. I cannot eat pork, and when I click on the planner a lot of the recipes have pork in them. It would be nice if we could select what types of foods we like to get more of a personal touch

  4. Nutritional information

    It would be nice to have at least basic nutritional information for each recipe. It's hard to guarantee the exact nutritional information because of possible variations in the ingredients. Also, not all recipes that you're pulling have this content. You could try using an API, like http://platform.fatsecret.com/api/

  5. Add more than one recipe to a date.

    I'd like to be able to add entrees, sides, and desserts all to one date. Also, I'd like the option of planning breakfasts and lunches for the same date as well.

  6. Improve search

    I searched for "vegetarian meatballs" (I get that can be confusing), and got mostly non-vegetarian recipes. Terms like "vegetarian", "low-fat", "sugar-free", "gluten-free", etc. are pretty important for people who need them. At the very least search should pay closer attention to those terms. Perhaps you could add in filtering for some of these key terms (and perhaps a calorie count and time to cook slider).

  7. a few suggestions...

    I just signed up because I need to start cooking healthy meals! :) I might use this site, but some suggestions that would make it easier for me are: make the shopping list customizable to reduce printing paper: i.e have the check boxes where you can delete items you already have (don't need to purchase) and to delete the various prices before printing (i.e. flour is listed 4 times for price comparison, which is great for planning the shopping, but doesn't need to be printed). 2 other suggestions; make it so we're able to change the date on the planner…

  8. Love this site

    I have to say, I just joined and am so impressed with this site. I hope that companies will take advantage of this site to post healthy meals and options for those who have specific dietary needs. This a huge timesaver and educational platform for the American Consumer. I even had to post on my blog! http://claudiamhill.com/kitchme/

  9. ingredients on deal?

    it seems like the recipes should indicate if an ingredient is on special at one of my stores. That is what would set this site apart from the thousands of other recipe sites. If i'm looking to maximize my shopping dollar, i'd pick recipes that are on deal or have coupons. When i print my shopping list, i'd want to see that the ingredient is on deal, or has a related coupon.

  10. Event based meal planner

    I would like to see an event based meal planner. For example, I would like to create an event (birthday, march madness, taco tuesday, etc). I would then like to add recipes to those events. So for an event, lets use taco Tuesday, I can see a list of recipes for different types of tacos. I can the choose one and add it to the meal planner (calendar). I also want the ability to repeat the event in the calendar. In my family every Tuesday is Taco Tuesday nite. Just want to have different types of tacos on Tuesday. Hope…

  12. A recipe finder for ingredients I have on hand

    Would love to be able to type in a few ingredients that I have on hand and have Kitchme come up with a recipe that includes those items. I def think the recipes should match up with store deals, that would be priceless!

  15. Variations of your recipes

    I would love to see the recipes you are showing(they are wonderful!),have an alternative way to lower the fat content.To make it more healthy.For example-My husband has to have a lower fat diet.That fried chicken looks amazing.Show me or others like me,How I can make it for him in a satisfying way. Ex-when I make a cake etc instead of oil I use applesauce

  16. Dietary Needs

    When the site first came up, I saw a button for dietary needs. Now that I have signed up, I cannot locate a place to add them. It would be good to have menus based on dietary needs, foods we like, fruits and veggies in season, etc.

  17. recipe links

    recipe links should not take me away from KitchMe. Either integrate within the site, or open a new tab or window.

  18. I like how each deal is categorized by bread, meats, snacks, etc. very easy to navigate.

  19. Grocery Stores

    I only shop at 2 grocery stores. It should be an option to only select 2 but it keeps defaulting the 3rd option to Sav-a-lot. I don't have one of those near me and don't want to see their specials. Just a suggestion. So far I love what the site has to offer.
