Adding a new Recipe

Welcome to the configuration settings for the Recipe Junction Shopify App! This guide will walk you through customizing and optimizing the app to align perfectly with your store’s needs. With settings like Placeholder Image, Storefront Language, and more, you can tailor the app to enhance your customer’s experience.


Crafting Your Recipe

Recipe Name:


Your recipe’s name is its first impression, so make it count. Choose a name that evokes curiosity, appetite, and excitement. It should reflect the essence of the dish and, if possible, hint at its origin, key ingredients, or culinary style. Avoid generic names; instead, aim for something memorable like “Sunset Mango Salsa” or “Rustic Provençal Ratatouille.” Think about the keywords people might use to search for your type of recipe and try to incorporate one into the name.

Recipe Description:


The description is where your recipe’s story comes to life. Use this space to weave a narrative that includes the dish’s cultural background, your personal connection to it, or the inspiration behind its creation. Mention any unique techniques or ingredients that make it stand out. Describe the flavors, textures, and aromas in a way that transports your reader to their kitchen, eager to recreate the experience. This is also a great place to highlight the dish’s appeal, whether it’s a comfort food classic, a quick weeknight dinner option, or a festive holiday centerpiece.

Recipe Visibility:


Deciding between public and private visibility depends on your content strategy. Public recipes can attract a wider audience, enhancing your store’s SEO and engagement.

Recipe Choice:


Proper categorization helps users navigate your collection more efficiently. Think beyond basic categories; consider dietary preferences (vegan, gluten-free), occasions (birthday, picnic), or cuisines (Italian, Asian). This not only aids discoverability but also aligns with your audience’s specific needs and interests, making your site a go-to resource.

Recipe Ingredients:


Clarity and precision are key. List ingredients in the order they are used to streamline the cooking process. For ingredients that might be unfamiliar or hard to find, suggest readily available alternatives. If your recipe is flexible, note which ingredients can be swapped or omitted. This inclusivity can broaden your recipe’s appeal.

You can also drive more sales by linking Ingredients to related products, encouraging customers to purchase what they need right from the recipe page.

Cooking Information:


Break down the cooking process into detailed, sequential steps. Use active verbs to clearly describe each action (e.g., “Whisk the eggs” instead of “Eggs should be whisked”). If your recipe includes techniques that might be new or challenging, consider adding brief explanations or tips to ensure success. Highlight any critical points for attention, like “do not overmix” or “chill for exactly one hour for best texture.”



This section is for all the extra pearls of wisdom that don’t fit neatly elsewhere. Share troubleshooting tips, ways to save time, or how to add a personal twist to the recipe. If there’s a story behind a particular tip or variation, share it here. This personal touch can make your recipes feel more relatable and trusted.

Serving Number:


Be specific about the number of servings to help users plan accordingly. If the recipe is scalable, offer guidance on adjusting ingredients for larger or smaller groups. This information is especially valuable for meal planning and helps avoid food waste.

Difficulty Level:


Be honest and realistic about the skill level required. Consider the techniques involved, the total time commitment, and whether the recipe requires specialized equipment. Offering a difficulty rating helps set expectations and ensures users choose recipes that match their comfort level in the kitchen.



If nutritional information is available, include it to cater to health-conscious users. Accuracy is important, so use reputable sources or nutritional analysis tools if you’re calculating this information yourself. If dietary focus is part of your brand, consider expanding this section to include macros or other relevant nutritional data.

Preparation Time and Cook Time:


Provide accurate time estimates for both preparation and cooking. Include any passive time, like marinating or chilling, in the preparation time. Users appreciate knowing the total time commitment upfront, so they can choose recipes that fit their schedules.

Recipe Nutritions:


If you choose to include detailed nutritional information, be as comprehensive as possible. This could include macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Such details are invaluable for users with specific dietary goals or restrictions. Be clear about what portion of the recipe these nutritional facts apply to.

Customizing your Recipe Junction Shopify App is a breeze with these intuitive settings. By fine-tuning each setting, you can ensure that the app not only meets your specific requirements but also provides an engaging and seamless experience for your customers.
