Recipe Writing Tips

1. List ingredients in the order used. Make sure all ingredients are included in the directions.

2. Include all amounts and container sizes: 2 (8-oz.) cans, 1 (14-oz.) pkg. Use parentheses to separate amounts.

3. Use ingredient names in the directions. For example, “Combine flour and sugar” rather than statements such as, “Combine the first two ingredients.”

4. Include temperatures and all cooking, chilling, baking, or freezing times.

5. Make sure ingredients and directions are clear, thorough, and accurate. For example, don’t assume the reader knows how to make yeast bread.

6. Submit recipes exactly as you want them to appear. Write directions in one paragraph.

7. Recipe titles and Ingredient lists may not include trademarked names, such as Miracle Whip or Kentucky Derby Pie.

8. You may put your position, town or other information after your name.

9. Recipe notes may include nutritional information, recipe history, tips, and other info up to 375 characters.
