Default Recipe Calorie Converter?

I used to have one bookmarked on my laptop, but it died and now I'm on my netbook. I tried to search the posts in the forums, but I just can't seem to find it, does anyone know a good site where I can plug in the ingredients and serving size and it can convert it all into calories for me? I make a lot of soups this time of year and have been experimenting with a bunch of pureed veggies as the base, and frankly, I have no idea how to formulate all of that into those neat little informational things on the side of store bought items :/

I always found this one to be the easiest:
http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php

Myfitnesspal.com has one also under Food > Recipes but I haven't used that one yet.

Tziri, thanks for that website. I just used it and wow was that easy. And I'm never eating a piece of the cake I make for my husband ever again..lol.. Each piece has over 400 calories in it. That's a small piece. A piece like my husband eats almost 800. Not good.. yikes.. I've tried to use the one on My Fitness Pal, but I can't figure it out. I've just tried on my phone though not their website.
Thanks again.

OMG I feel so dumb. I had no idea recipe converters existed (and I have been using myfitnesspal for like 2 months now). For three years I have been measuring each ingredient, getting the calories for that amount, adding it all together, and then dividing that number by my serving portions. It takes FOREVER. Thanks for opening my eyes

I just found out about this too!

I wish all recipes online had calories with them.

AllRecipes.com has a receipe calculator as well,
but on the two occassion I've attempted to use it
the calculator didn't work. It's harder to use because
you have to add each ingredient one at a time.

The calorie count is awesome and fast.
I just checkd a recipe from my "decadent" dining
days that came in at 450 calories per serving. Ouch!

Thank you for sharing!
