Back in 2019, Family Cookbook Project introduced add special icons to recipe titles to call special attention to them in a cookbook table of contents. Recipe symbols were a big success and many contributors started using them. Many people also asked us to include additional symbols and that is what we have done. We have added 9 new symbols that are now available:
- Pressure Cooker
- Air Fryer
- Updated Kosher
- Instant Pot
- Low Carb
As the editor you can add these recipe symbols to any recipe right after you have entered the recipe title on the “Add a recipe” page. There is a drop-down menu to select the symbol to be included in that recipe.
For recipes already added to your cookbook, you can edit that recipe and add a symbol of your choice.
A key of icons and their meanings used in your cookbook will also appear on the bottom of your table of contents page. If you don’t include a specific symbol, it will not be included in your icon key list.
Please let us know how you like the new recipe symbols.
