Instructions clear but images repeat

First off lots of great recipes and very clean design on the app. Love it save for the images in the step by step instructions. Most of the time an image from the previous instruction will display for the current one. For example, one step may be to slice some mushrooms and it’ll show an image of slicing mushrooms. The next instructions would say slide an avocado or pull the husk off an ear of corn and it’ll still show that slicing mushroom picture. Must be something wrong with your image cacheing or the table not updating properly.

If it were fixed I’d for sure give this five stars as I’ve found some great recipes on SideChef

Favorite cooking companion

The recipe selection is great, and the visuals are so helpful. I also really love the wikis because they help me eat seasonally and learn more about the foods I eat - I even learn things about foods I’m already familiar with!
