Does anyone know where the add button is on a tablet?? Please Help! Thank you!

Hi! It should be the "save recipe" button at the top between "notes" and "comment." It seems to be showing up fine on our end. Let us know if this helps!!

recipe to vague and chicken broth listed as mililiters. We don't readily know how much 1800 milliliters is in american measurements.

1800 millimeters is 7.56 cups (7.5)

so does each person get a whole potato in the bowl? directions are kind of missing things what about the skins?

Directions are extremely vague!

Potatoes are peeled and diced.
