The place where people come for the food, but stay for the conversation ™
BakeSpace.com was launched in 2006 as the Web's first food-themed social network and recipe swap, It’s the independent, grassroots community by and for people who love to cook, bake and express their passion for all things food-related.
BakeSpace.com lets you find and share recipes (we have more than 70,000 submitted by members), publish and sell interactive cookbooks, compete in recipe contests, make new friends, connect with culinary mentors and enjoy live video programming featuring the most interesting food and pop culture influencers.
BakeSpace.com is the place to go when you’re hungry... not just for recipes, but for friends and conversation. Our goal is to update and reinvent the age-old tradition of gathering in the kitchen by inspiring home cooks to share their culinary passion with the world.
How It Works
On most recipe sites and apps, the experience begins and mostly ends with finding a recipe. But on BakeSpace.com, finding a great recipe is just the beginning of the journey.
You can post, search and swap recipes in real-time, build and customize your "online kitchen," raid the "virtual pantry" (The Feed), get inspired and learn from other members by tapping into the web’s longest-running cooking/baking mentor program. In addition, our unique “recipe swap” ensures you always know what your friends are preparing in the kitchen.
Membership is free, and the site is as easy to use as making toast. If you'd like to give the community a test-drive, check out this cupcake recipe from BakeSpace.com Founder Babette Pepaj (Devil's Food Chocolate Cupcakes with Ganache Centers and Frosting), which she says can make grown men cry.

Here's what a few of our friends in the media have to say about BakeSpace
"The site is easy to use and full of dishes that everyday cooks might actually want to make. The space may be virtual, but the food is real."
Scripps Howard News Service
"Charming inits simplicity, country kitchen aesthetic and ease of use, BakeSpace is an open in-vitation not only to bakers, but to cooks of all kinds."
"The key to its appeal is the interactive design which encourages like-minded cooks to make friends over the internet."
"If food defines you, there's an online gathering place for you to find the similarly obsessed, and it’s called BakeSpace. Now that's a pretty great idea I have to say."
