One of my favorite features on the new site is the nutritional breakdown stats when you hover over a recipe on the recipe index.

@Sean Farrell lovely interface ++
That's a great idea Sean - I think though the delay is a tad long, if you hadn't mentioned the hover change, I would have missed it entirely.
@Adam Whitcroft - I actually have been thinking the same thing. My only worry by quickening it up was that it would become really overwhelming if everything was lighting up as you scroll.
I just caught this showing the site to a friend. Nice touch. =)
Nice, I actually did miss it like @Adam said when I checked it out last week. Nice touch just reduce the delay a bit.
Looking great Sean. I've been following the progress for a while. Looks like you two have a great thing going.
@Sean Farrell Absolutely - it's a fine line for sure, but I think right now more people would miss it than would see it, which would be a pity. Great looking site btw.
Dude, right on! Killer Hover Stats!
Agree with the delay but only a subtle change will make it perfect. Such a good feature. Also great site content, will be checking it more often now.
Really nice rollover!
Lovely! Agree with others above.
Damn @Sean this entire site, including that sexy rollover, is stunning!
@Sean you guys have absolutely done a beautiful job on the site.
This seems anti-intuitive, not just counter-intuitive.
Knowing these breakdowns would be incredibly handy for a viewer, yet you've effectively hidden them. Even if the reveal was instantaneous, you're still reducing the effectiveness of this information. Sure, they're very pretty right now, but this is a feature 0.01% of your audience will know is there, and even then it takes a tremendous amount of patience for a person to slowly scroll down the page, hovering over every single photo to get this breakdown info.
Instead, you should be making this information available as a filter. Let a person filter down by calories (eg 300-600, 600-900, etc), filter by time it takes to prepare, so on and so forth.
Additionally, make these bits of information persistently visible so a viewer can hone-in on a recipe at a glance.
Also, I have no clue what WWP stands for.
Also I really suggest setting up some site caching plugins for this wordpress site. Get WPcache + a minify plugin. Then, use cloudflare as a DNS and set the cache to expire after 1 week. This will dramatically reduce the initial pageloads plus practically eliminate the pageloads on subsequent visits, and will not at all impact new posts from your wife (the only thing cached will be existing imagery and stylesheets, not updated content).
The idea is great but I agree with @Adam Whitcroft on the delay.
I think @Ryan Ford brings up some really good points. This is really nice design work visually, but from a UX perspective I'd expect the calorie and preparation time breakdowns to be pretty valuable to the user. Perhaps even critically so--I could imagine users searching based on either one, and in that case it'd get pretty frustrating having to reveal the stats recipe-by-recipe.
Did you consider maybe displaying these stats under the titles of the recipes?
@Ryan Ford Thanks for the suggestion. We had that idea in the future but wasn't ready for V1. As you can see, there are already 3 different ways to sort through - I'm not sure how much more we wanted to add..
I bookmarked the site because of the design, wife wanted me to bookmark because of the recipes.
Dude, I love it.
I do have one thing to add. The "Loading More..." on scroll down kinda messes with me. If I wanted to get to an item in the footer, it's a little tough when more recipes keep loading. I know it stops eventually, but what if you threw in something like what Facebook ( sorry :-| ) does? Like it loads one more section, then give you the option to load more if you choose, that way it gives you access to the footer.
Maybe this doesn't bother a lot of people, and maybe you've already looked at a solution? But it's just my two cents :)
I do love the site, and think the progress has been great to watch, congrats!
This site is so good. There's so many great details. Bodoni and Prox Nova is a nice pairing also!
Beautiful work, Sean. Both the design and content are top notch!
