‘Easy Recipes, Healthy Eating Ideas and Chef Recipe Videos’ (no date).

First thing I noticed about this website is that it is not very reactive, when the screen is made smaller, none of the images get smaller or move, the same applies to the text and any other content appears on the screen. You have to scroll across left/right of the screen to view the rest of the webpage, which means it will not be very accessible to use on a mobile/tablet device.

The overall design is simple with the colours however, for a main page it looks over crowded. There’s too much going on.

From a button at the top you can bring down a menu that displays recipes, but by clicking the button alone it brings you up with this as the front screen, with one main image if the recipe, this will show three recipes as a slideshow.

The website uses the font Lucida Grande to display the content for the recipe method, size 13 which is slightly bigger than the fonts from the previous websites. It has the ingredients on the side bar instead of at the top.

This website has a search bar and like a previous one, once you start typing will offer you suggestions to what meal you wish to prepare which is good for those who are just looking for inspiration.
