Hello, I'm Jenna! This my portfolio project web application for my full stack bootcamp at Codaisseur.

About Yummy Start

Yummy Start is an app that helps people to have a 'yummy start' when it comes to healthy eating by providing recipes that show that healthy eating doesn't have to be boring and complicated! You can filter recipes by dietary preferences, meal type and search for recipes by ingredient. You can also add your own recipes to inspire others in their Yummy Start journey.

App Demo

User stories

  • As a user interested in eating healthier, I would like to view a list of recipes
  • As a user that is interested in making a specific recipe, I want to see the details of a recipe with ingredients, method, cooking time etc.
  • As a user that has specific preferences/needs, I want to be able to filter recipes according to meal type, diet and how popular a recipe is (likes/hearts)
  • As a user that has specific preferences/needs, I want to be able to search for recipes by an ingredient
  • As a recipe contributor, I want to be able to post a recipe so that I can share my delicious meal idea and inspire others
  • As a user I want to be able to like recipes and ‘favourite’ a recipe that is added to 'my favourites’ so that I can view it and make it at a later stage
