Recipe serving size?

The recipe-builder function has a "serving" field. What you enter here depends on ingredient foods you have in this recipe.

If you entered foods for one serving, you should enter "serving" or whatever the serving is, e.g. "cup", or "2 cups".

If you entered foods for many servings, i.e. the whole recipe, you should put the total number of servings in the recipe. For example "6 servings" or "12 cups".

When you log in your diary this recipe food, e.g. in dinner, you can enter the number of servings you actually ate, e.g. "1.5 servings" or "2 cups" (depending on the actual serving you entered while creating the recipe). MyNetDiary will calculate calories and nutrients based on recipe's serving.
