Connie K. ( 6d ) – Is there a way to put in things you allergic to such as tomatoes?

Swich C. ( 2d ) – Hi Connie! All of these recipes can be edited to replace ingredients – you can even edit the shopping list. But having a place to list one’s allergens is a great idea – I’ll be sure to forward it along :)
