Submitting your recipe to ifoodyou.com

ifoodyou.com offers also the possibility to anyone to share his own recipes via ifoodyou.com website and network. Submitting your recipes is free of charge and will only take seconds to upload. In order to keep up with our standards we prepared the below easy to follow guidelines one needs to follow in order to have his recipe published on our portal

Recipe Title

The recipe title should be short and descriptive as possible.

For example: Margerita Pan Pizza is a good recipe title while just Pizza is not.

Short Description

The short description should give the users a taste of what they are going to achieve after following your instructions. Inserting real life experience when you prepared your recipe for the first time or the reaction of people whenever they taste your final product will increase users curiosity. In return you will end up with much more views, reviews and ratings which will eventually put your recipe on top of our list.

For example: My Favourite Sunday Lunch recipe. I never go wrong when I cook this delicious crispy chicken with mushroom sauce is a good short description while just Chicken Mushroom Recipe is not.

Recipe Content

The recipe content is the whole recipe it’s self. In this box you will need to list the recipe ingredients and recipe methods (steps)Optionally you can also include Nutritional Info per serving.

Ingredients: You need to insert ingredients one per line, for example:

  • 2 packets active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup barely warm water
  • 1/3 cup barely warm milk
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature but still
  • slightly firm

 

Methods (Steps): You need to insert methods (steps) one per line, for example:

Step 1

Put the yeast, water and milk in the bowl of a stand mixer and, using a wooden spoon, stir until the yeast is dissolved. Add the flour and salt, and fit the mixture with the dough hook, if you have one. Toss a towel over the mixer to avoid being showered in flour. Turn the mixer on and off in a few short pulses, just to dampen the flour, then remove the towel, increase the mixer speed to medium-high just until the flour is moistened. You should have a fairly dry, shaggy mass.

Step 2

Create a marinade by transferring the paste to a small bowl and whisking in the soy sauce, fish sauce, five-spice powder and a healthy dose of pepper.Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula, set the mixer to low and add the eggs, followed by the sugar. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat for about 3 minutes, until the dough forms a ball. Reduce the speed to low and add the butter in 2-tablespoon size chunks, beating until each piece is almost incorporated before adding the next. You’ll have a dough that is very soft, almost like a batter. Increase the speed to medium-high and continue to beat until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl, about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Transfer the dough to a clean bowl, cover with plastic wrap and leave at room temperature until nearly doubled in size, 40 to 60 minutes.
