Twice Cooked Recipe Cards by basilosaur.us helps you turn your recipes into fancy printable recipe cards, complete with SEO-friendly microformats.
Twice Cooked Recipe Cards by basilosaur.us (https://basilosaur.us/) helps you turn your blog's recipes into fancy electronic recipe cards. This plugin provides you with all the tools you need to create microformatting that helps search engines recognize ingredients, instructions, and whole recipes. And it provides a mechanism to create pop-out, printable pages so that readers can easily add your recipe to their physical collection in the kitchen.
When you add TCRC recipe tags to your post, the plugin automatically creates formatting that, with an elegant, modern, minimalist look, sets your recipe off from the rest of your writing, and adds distinctive formatting for ingredients, time, yield, and instructions. And it creates a pop-out button for users which, when clicked, loads a version of the recipe that is specially formatted for printing cleanly and easily on most inkjet and laser printers.
To help you format your recipes, TCRC gives you six new shortcodes which create the recipe card and implement microformat.org's hRecipe schema for improved search-engine optimization:
But you don't have to memorize all this stuff. Twice Cooked Recipe Cards also extends WordPress' visual editor with toolbar buttons that make recipe formatting a piece of cake. Highlight your recipe, then use the New Recipe button to create the [recipe] and [recipename] tags in one simple step. Then use the handy dropdown box to create your ingredients, instructions, duration, yield, etc.
