Top 5 Tips for Writing Recipes for Your Blog


How to Write Recipes

You’ve come up with a great recipe for your blog or website. You’ve tested it, tasted it and tested it again. You’ve even got a killer image that you know will get a lot of Pins and Likes. Now you’re ready to post it!

Not so fast. I'm Speaking at #BlogHerFood15 in Chicago!

Ask yourself this: Will this recipe really inspire your readers and guarantee success? In other words, if I pulled a random recipe off your website and tried to make it in my kitchen, would it turn out as lovely and delicious looking as that image on the top of your page?

If a recipe fails, whether that recipe came from a blog or a website or a cookbook, do you think twice before returning to that source? I know I do.

So when you write and publish a recipe, you need to make triply sure your readers have every bit of knowledge you had when you created the dish. You want to take out any guesswork and give them total confidence that your recipe will work the first time and every time.

      Thanks Heaven is Smiling! Portions and serving sizes are my biggest issue. I know people NEED the guidance, but it is hard. A serving size of mashed potatoes is half a cup, but I know I always eat more!
