On the recipe hub capsules, it would be VERY useful to be able to put more than just one ingredients capsule.
Why? Because with SOME recipes, there are very specific, separate sets of ingredients that are not to be combined with each other, or before a certain point.
Having them all lumped into a single ingredients capsule can easily create confusion, and cause people to fail at re-creating the recipe. (My holiday gumdrops recipe is a perfect example of this.)
Therefore, although I was going to convert this 'regular' hub into a recipe template hub, I don't think I can, because I needed a specific, numbered, set of separate ingredients, for which I originally used text capsules. I think I'll have to leave it that way.
I would like to see this future too. I just had a cake recipe where the topping recipe was separate from the cake recipe.
That was requested some time ago but staff explained that each capsule represents one recipe in search...or something to that effect. I wish I could find the forum thread where it was explained but I am soo tired now. I'll find it for you later so you can read the response from staff.
I think this would be very helpful, too. It would apply to a lot dessert recipes that have a topping, grilled entrees with a dipping sauce, or even coordinated menu that has three or more parts, etc.
