Manly Recipes is a recipe theme with a clean design that’s somewhat minimal and fairly masculine. There are many recipe themes available, but most seem to be designed in a feminine way to target women. But there are also plenty of men who want to blog about their recipes, whether they’re interested in body building, working out, the paleo diet, low-carb diets, etc. Of course, Manly Recipes is a great choice for anyone who simply doesn’t want a girly or frilly-looking design for their recipe blog. Your choice of accent color significantly changes the feel of the design, and you can select from a variety of Google Fonts to further customize your site. This theme integrates the Bootstrap navigation and carousel.

Recipe Posts vs Blog Posts

Recipe posts are different from blog posts. This is useful because it allows you to keep your recipes separate from your regular blog posts.


Double Menu

This theme gives you two separate header menus. The bottom one disappears on smaller screens, so use the top menu for the most important links.

For each slide, you can set the following:
