Default Points in recipes

Hi everyone! I am officially starting my journey tomorrow. My question is how do I add the points up in a recipe that I make from scratch? I look forward to getting going and being able to contribute to the foru.

You've gotta look up the point values of all the ingredients, then divide by number of servings.

Are you using the online/etools? Becuase on their website they have a recipe builder. You plug in the ingredients and add the number of servings and get the Pts per serving. Then you save it, so you can find it again later.
