If you choose to write your recipe, you must do so via a form in which you must enter all the information about the recipe (when connected) .
Note : to connect, you first need to subscribe.

Here are some tips for completing these fields.

Recipe title

As the name suggests, it is the title of the recipe, but also how it will appear in the various lists of recipes, try putting something representative and not too long (5 or 6 words or less).

Photo

With each recipe you can add a picture to accompany and present, it is not (yet) mandatory but highly recommended. The pictures that you can file must be in JPG or PNG, not weigh more than 200 kilobytes and be of reasonable size.
I recommend a size of 311x210 pixels because it is the size of pictures of every recipe site, like this example:

i you try to upload a too big photo, the site will automatically reduce it.

Note that to replace a picture, you just need to deposit another to replace the previous one.

Category and subcategory

You can organize your recipe into a main category and subcategory to choose from a menu. This should eventually allow them to be sorted and find them faster.

Public or Private

When "private" a recipe can be seen only by you, when "public" it appears in the list of user's recipes. Tip: When you are writing your recipe, leave it to "private", and when it's done put it to "public".

Introduction

Present the recipe in some words or phrases to indicate what it is, what is intended to do, and so on.

Ingredients

Ingredients used in the recipe, as an ingredient list with a line starting with a "-", example:
- 150g sugar
- 3 eggs

Making of

This is the most important part where you have to put as much information on the steps of the recipe. The ideal is to list as the ingredients, for example:
1) Beat the 3 egg whites with a pinch of salt
2) Melt butter over low heat

Supplements

Add here any additional information on the recipe, a trick, accuracy, advice, etc. Example:
"Use the remaining egg yolks to make small vanilla cream that you can use the next day".
