1. Open your post, click the (+) button in the block editor to add a new block, search for “Tasty” and select the “Tasty Recipe” block that appears.
2. Now that you’ve added the recipe card block, you can start entering your recipe details — add ingredients, instructions, prep time/cook time/total time, serving size, nutritional information, etc.
Step 3: Publish your recipe card
The final step is publishing your recipe card. If you’d like, you can preview your recipe on the post editor page (or on your site after you click Preview).
