I was looking for a recipe card plugin that offered the ability to check-off ingredients and steps. What I found is an aesthetically beautiful plugin with these features and more! It was a bit of a risk to activate it as my theme is not listed as a compatible one, but that risk was worth taking as it integrated well with the accessible and responsive qualities of my site.

The plugin itself is really great and has all the features you could wish for. But what really blew me away is the support it provides. I couldn’t figure out how to change the title «Recipes» in the breadcrumbs, and contacted support who created a video in no time that walked me through the steps to the solution. Absolutely fantastic – kudos and many thanks!
