cushtie.com runs on WordPress, and you’re probably reading this via the magic of HTTP.

There’s a few different plugins I use.  To format recipes, I use Easy Recipe to make things easy for Google to understand. (Because Google likes it when you mark your recipes up properly and because I don’t want to hardcode that.)  There are a few different plugins to do this formatting: I tried RecipeSEO first, but didn’t like the way it played with WordPress’ Twenty Fourteen theme, which is what this blog is running under.

Here’s a comparison of the two of them:
