    When you publish nutrition comparisons it’s very important to list the serving size. A smaller serving is usually going to have fewer calories, etc so that information is critical. I may have missed it, but I didn’t see the serving size in the image above.

      Please look directly below the title of the recipe in the print friendly box and you will usually see the recipe type, the number it serves and then additional information near the bottom. For instance, on this recipe you will see that it says serves 1 under the title. Thanks!
