Thank you so much for your response.
I'm not completely savvy with these things, but was able to find and troubleshoot through online instructions on how to set up google authorship for my site so that these types of things show up on my recipes when they appear in searches. However, the whole point of me setting this up was primarily so it would show the recipe's image. So, is there anything I can do to make it show the recipe image instead? If I could, I prefer searches show the recipe image and review/star rating... I don't care much for my author picture to show, I only did what was necessary to show that cuz I thought it was required to show the recipe image.
Any further advice on resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
By the way... i followed instructions on this page https://www.foodbloggerpro.com/community/viewthread/42/#182 to set this up and if you notice the results from the google testing tool for this webpage http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/richsnippets?url=http://pinchofyum.com/crockpot-mexican-chicken&html= you'll notice they have it basically set up just the same as I do, with all the same settings, yet it appears with the recipe image along with the reviews and author pic.
