The Cookalong Podcast

When you need a little culinary inspiration and guidance, this is one concept that delivers.

Cindy has a huge passion for cooking, and her love of food has turned into a startup venture. She sought out my help in implementing a concept for a cookalong podcast and website where at-home chefs can get inspirations... while following along!

The project was successfully deployed and all features were debugged for the client. She is now able to easily import batches of recipes, write blogs, and publish updates, as well as share on social media.

Unique ideas require unique implementations.

A unique WordPress project that required a ground-up approach. The most important aspect of this site was ensuring the right data was being displayed in the right place, at the right time, to avoid user confusion. The final version includes a non-traditional home page, logic to handle recipe and blog pagination, as well a social media and SoundCloud integration. An emphasis was placed on mobile devices for kitchen use, while retaining a good desktop appeal for users to research recipes beforehand.

Keys to Project Success


The purpose and utility of the site had to be clear, as data needed to be managed proper output. The design hinged on how the site was to be used.

Ease of Use for Client

This is a site where content is changed often, so customizing the back-end for the client was needed to streamline content creation and avoid mistakes.


Both SoundCloud and social media integration is a necessity, so ensuring that platform integrations work well together was a priority.
