    Are you using Wordpress, or something else? A link to your site, if it's online, would be a big help in understanding what you're trying to accomplish.

    Also, without any context, "the unique layout provided by the themes recipe index" doesn't really tell us much. In fact, I tried googling "themes recipe index" in case I was missing something obvious, and the only search result was this post Maybe you could link us to the resource you're referring to?

    You are using a food theme ...
    I'm guessing the "theme recipe index" is a term the theme author uses.

    Neptune - Theme for Food Recipe Bloggers & Chefs - WordPress


    There are a couple of methods ...

    You could use a plugin:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/recent...tegory-widget/

    Or customize the scripting using WP Regex:
    https://codex.wordpress.org/Function...t_recent_posts

    We have no way of knowing how your theme author has set-up the "main page", "home page", or "front page" ... whatever the theme author has called it. The plugin or scripting would have to occur on that front page if that's where it needs to be.

    Since the Neptune theme is not a free download, I can't download and search any of its files to know where the main page scripting is being done. For all I know, the author may have created his/her own plugin or function for that main page.

    One of the biggest problems with WordPress is the severe bloating of code. It loads a ton of JQuery (javascripting), numerous plug-ins, and a whole mess of unnecessary code. A good indication of this is how long it takes to load the website / web pages. The loading is long ... in seconds, not microseconds.

    On my browser, it took a bit over 5 seconds to load your website. Not so good.
