What is it?
Cake.Recipe is a set of convention based build scripts, which are delivered as a NuGet Package, which can then be consumed by Cake.
The thought process behind this is that I was creating the same build script several times, with minor tweaks, which meant when something changed, I had to update it in several places. This isn't good for a number of reasons, but mostly due to the fact that it is a lot of effort to keep those up to date when things change. By making a NuGet package of the common tasks, with the ability to configure the different options means that Cake.Recipe can be used on many projects, and updated in a single place.'
