Si tu suis la recette, je pense que tout sera bien. Please explain why "will be" is not right, and "will go" is instead. Thank you.

You probably know that in french we don't say how are you? but how are you going?. (Comment vas-tu ? or comment ça va ?) The same goes for that sentence, we say Tout va bien (everything is fine) and tout ira bien for everything will be fine.

I think the english phrase, then, could easily be: "If you follow the recipe, I think everything will go fine." It's accurate and makes sense.

Or everything will go well.
