Most people come to MyDish for recipe inspiration , to add new ideas to their collection and especially to find easy to make homemade recipes that look impressive. In addition what people were asking for is combinations so we have taken our dinner party competition and we are building a collection of dinner party menus
The reason people have joined up and become a MyDish member is so they can get recipe ideas sent to them, store their favourite recipes (so they dont have to search for them each time they want to make something they like) and share their recipes with friends and family – this is great we just need to make it easier and more obvious for everyone as to how they can link up with their own friends. – When we talk to people they love the idea of sharing with people they know and getting told when one of their friends adds a new recipe – the only thing i people tend to tell people about MyDish rather than invite them to join from their own homepage so they are not connected and they dont find each other – a problem we are working on- we have not cracked it but take a look at your new profile page!
