Here's the method I use for figuring out calorie counts,etc. for my own recipes:
1. Go to the next day on the calendar (i.e., the day after the current day) and then enter the recipe ingredients just as if they were foods for the day. For example, with a muffin recipe I made today, I entered 1 c. flour, .5 c sugar, and so on.
2. Use the total calories and nutrition breakdowns for the "day"--which is the same as for the recipe since that's all that's on that page at the moment--and divide the key measures (calories, g. fat, carbs, & protein) by the number of servings the recipe makes. (For my muffin recipe, I divided by 12 since I made 12 muffins with it.) NOTE: the Google search box works as a quick and easy calculator if you don't have one handy.
3. Enter the key numbers from your recipe (calories, g. fat, protein, & carbs) for ONE serving into the "Create custom foot" feature just under the "browse foods" and "recent foods" links.
4. Erase all the ingredients from the foods list for tomorrow so that you have a clean slate for tomorrow's foods.
