  • This plugin is the difference between fun and frustration. After a lot of research, demos, and deliberating, I chose Simmer. The UI is clean and straightforward. The "bulk add" feature for ingredients and instructions is key and works really well. What really won me over was clean look of recipes in themes.

  • The simplicity and appearance of the published recipe is one of the best parts of this plugin. I love it!

  • This recipe plugin is fantastic. Publishing recipes the old way was such a headache. Simmer makes the entire process easy and allows creators to be as precise or non-specific as they'd like.
