Improving the logon process

As software developers, we are obsessed with the usability and performance of this website. We have written most of the site ourselves from scratch, but for a few things (such as the user logon process), we used code from a third party (this is standard practice).

So we announced it and demonstrated it, but held off from releasing it until 2 weeks later on the...

Our about page describes why my brother Kevin and I created GetMeCooking - basically it was because we didn't know how to cook and when we looked online, there weren't any recipe websites we liked - so we created this recipe website and a recipe plugin to encourage food bloggers to fill it with really good quality, well written recipes.

The GetMeCooking website and our recipe...
