Addition to Cooking Time Recipe Capsule

    I do several recipes that require a "Chilling Time" and would like to see and addition to the Cooking Time Capsule allowing for that. I have had to add chilling time to the preparation time which makes the recipes look long and exhausting.

    Please, consider adding this.

    Thank you.

      You could always add a note saying that chilling time is not included in a separate text box either next to the cooking tine capsule or underneath it.

          For the time being I am adding a prep note immediately under the Cooking Time, but I would still like to see chilling time as an addition. There are a lot of chilled and frozen dishes and desserts out there.

          Thank you for the suggestion.

              Norah, Some recipe sites have a print section to print out the recipe.  Would this perhaps be a possibility for HubPages?

    @Norah, what if you have a three part recipe hub? Say for instance it's one meal with three instructions such as The sauce, the meat and the salad. Is it possible to have three ratings capsules for each recipe? I don't know if it's possible but I wouldn't mind each recipe being rated on it's own. There might be a need to add sections to the hub to separate each recipe so it would appear like a separate page in search.

    I'm putting together a 2-part recipe -- salad and a dressing - and would appreciate being able to include 2 ingredients capsules. Unless I missed something, we can only use 1 right?

      Unfortunately, right now one's the limit. There are times when I would like to use more than one but end up having to use a text box for the second ingredient list.

        since the purpose of these new recipe capsules is supposed to be better recognition by google, there are some restrictions that are dictated by google's rich snippet design

        these include google's definitions for preptime,cooktime,totaltime and ingredients, so i suspect there's little that HP can do to change any of these

          Thank you. Had no idea that multiple recipe capsules would affect the whole thing. I may have to consider separating recipes.
