The Title is the name of the recipe.
Bold any subsections (i.e. sauce, dry ingredients, etc.).
Use default font sizes, etc.
Each step should be a new paragraph; don't use the bullets or numbers.
Avoid abbreviations, such as tsp. or oz. Just type the word out.

I'm not usually a carrot cake fan because I don't like the texture of grated carrots in my dessert. Problem solved with this recipe. It's one of the best cakes I've ever had/made.

It's cheaper (and still pretty easy) to steam your own carrots and then puree them. You'll need 3/4 cup of puree.
