Recipe Widget

The Recipe Widget is a piece of code that can be added to your website or blog. To install it you need to copy the code that appears here. Once you properly place the code on your website or blog you should see the Recipe Widget box. (You will need to refer to your own website or blog to find proper placement for this code.) This box will display a random recipe that will change every time a user visits the site or blog and also on page refresh. The recipe links back to cookingwiththebible.com for complete cooking instructions. You will need an internet connection for this to work.

To add the Recipe Widget to your Blogger blog:

  • Once you are signed in to your blog access the "Template" tab
  • Select "Page Elements" from the sub-menu.
  • Click on "Add a Page Element."
  • From the pop-up select "HTML/JavaScript" by clicking on the button that says "Add to Blog" for this element.
  • Title the recipe widget. We suggest Recipe Widget, but you can use your own title.
  • Paste the code we've provided into the "Content" box and Save Changes.
  • You will be returned to the "Page Elements" section where you can then move the widget to the desired location on your blog.
  • Don't forget to Save and then the next time you view your blog the widget should appear. You will need to refresh if you already have the blog open.

FAQs

Q. The meals come from the scriptures, but the recipes for the individual foods aren't actually in the Bible so where do they come from?
A. The recipes as well as the ingredients used in each were inspired by the Bible. The authors spent many months developing each recipe based on both the Bible text and the history behind it. Each recipe page has a tab which contains information about the specific bible reference and the history.
