Tutorial for a Recipe Format

Tutorial for a Recipe Format

For the foodies in us, we have created the Recipe format. A recipe contains two types of checklists: the ingredients and the instructions (steps).

In most cases, people like to save the ingredients into their shopping list. This is a great opportunity to offer them an interactive shopping list on your blog by embedding the checklist with its ingredients. Remember: you get a link back on their shopping list.

Before getting started with the Recipe format, we suggest you get yourself familiar with the Simple format. We have made a great tutorial for it:

Simple Format Tutorial

This tutorial will not repeat what is already in the Simple format tutorial but focus on what is specific for the Recipe format.

Adding Ingredients

Simply enter one ingredient per line. Try to add quantities and measurement unites at the start of each line. E.g.

200 g sugar

Adding Instructions (steps)

Unlike the Simple format where everything was entered into one textarea, a Recipe is made of an instructions section with multiple steps. Each step is made of a name, notes and optional picture(s). When creating a new recipe, we already add one empty step for you. Start by filling it out.

Each recipe can have an unlimited number of steps. To add more steps, simply click on the "+ Add Another Step" button. A new empty step will be added which you can use to enter your new step.

People love visuals so try to spicen your recipe with one or more picture per step.

Managing Instructions

Once finished entering the instructions steps, you can easily make changes. You can:
Delete a step. Simply click on the trash can at the top right of the step you wish to delete.
Re-arrange steps order. Each step will have Up/ Down buttons under the trash can which you can use to re-arrange its location in the list.
View picture. Each step picture will show its name and a link which will open the image in a new window. You can use this to verify the images.
Delete picture. Click on the red trash can next to the link

Tag Your Recipe

The Recipe format has its own tags which are based on: course type, ocassion, cuisine, ingredients used in cooking and diets. They are all optional but we do suggest your use them so it is easier for our users to find YOUR recipe.

Similar to the Simple format, you can also enter free-text comma separated tags.
