Great Plugin
By , for WP 3.9

This is the second recipe plugin that I have used for my website and is much better than the first one I tried. It has worked well from the initial download and has been easy to set up and enter recipes. I am so pleased that I updated to Easy Recipe Plus.

Out-Of-The-Box With No Problems
By , for WP 3.8.1

I was concerned when reading a couple of the 1-Star ratings that were left, but I was willing to give the PRO version a chance after trying the demo. I've only had it for 24 hours, but everything seems to be working and nothing on my site is broken.

I took off a star for a couple of reasons.

1.The "import" of recipes doesn't exist - not for the plugin user. You are only able to export your own recipes to their website (They call it import, referring to their end.) I think this is more than a bit deceiving to the buyer.

2.The only other thing is the inserting of pictures. A bit of a pain in the ass and that might be my not finding an easier way to get a "featured" photo loaded. I have to insert an image into the recipe, so that it is available to pick as a featured image, then I have to go back and delete the image from inside the recipe. If I don't do that it seems I have to provide a url for the image.

Overall though, it really is a good plugin. I tried almost all of them before deciding on Easy Recipe. Others I tried had major issues. This one didn't give me any problems.

What I'd like to see in future updates:
Instructions provided on the templates for those who submit recipes. Many aren't familiar with how to proceed.

An optional area to provide a link somewhere on the completed recipe form that lets visitors know they can post their own recipes. The link could lead to the submission area ("detail" page).

Great recipe card
By , for WP 3.6

When I downloaded this originally it didn't work & it took several weeks to get help - BUT when I did get a response back, they were super helpful & now I love it!! Im so glad i kept it. Really user friendly & looks super clean. I just needed to un-install it & re-install it. Thanks!

Works well, adaptable

Good choice of recipe styles--or create your own. Would be nice if you could turn off guest posting.

Works beautifully
By , for WP 3.5

There are two items that I wish to see in this plugin:

1) A recipe multiplier. Many recipe followers cannot make much adjustment to a recipe. So they either make a recipe with ingredients for 6 and one person eat it for days OR don't cook that dish at all.

2) Add an "unattended cooking time" to the times of a recipe. Some dishes take minutes to put together and an extended time to cook. A dish may baking unattended for an hour or requiring constant stirring for that same hour.

Add #1 and I'll change to 5 stars. Both will get 6!
