Hi! I'm the founder of What makes the BakeSpace community unique is that recipes are just the beginning of the conversation -- unlike most traditional recipe sites where the journey begins and ends with a recipe retrieval. Our slogan from day-one was "Come for the food, and stay for the conversation." I'd love to hear from you so if you have questions, let me know!

great site you've created here! love it!

Amazing how this site it going since I first joined in the beginning. Ive been expanding my cooking, but not my baking as such into recently. Ive even experimented with ice creams, custards, etc. Soon Ill be making a lemon kiwi cheesecake, a quince tart, congac truffles, and a chili souffle. Ill also be dabbling in cookies such as the chessboard cookie and a brownie crackle-topped cookie.

I don't think I ever responded to you but regardless, I want to compliment you on a great site. I'll admit I've not been on a whole lot but finally got around to posting my first recipe. Let's see where I go from here. Say hello to Erik for me and I wish you much continued success. FYI - the site looks good on the iPad, too! :)

Thank you for the kitchenaid giveaway. You can't believe how excited I was to log in this morning and see I won. What an incredible opportunity. I didn't win the last time so I suppose two prizes are making up for it. Thank you to your team for such a great job as always.

Babette In order to prevent yourself from any possible lawsuits, I do believe you really should post a disclaimer cautioning that addiction will likely occur upon joining BakeSpace. I'm spending way too much time here!!lol Carol
Date: 04/13/08 05:15 PM
Babette dear - are you nice or what. Within hours of my query (whole baked fish?), you responded with suggestions. Because I'm sometimes computer-challenged, I ended up doing what this site inspires: ("Necessity is the mother of invention") and winged it by putting a cranberry/balsamic pork glaze onto 3 bass. A star was born, no kidding. I'm going to post it and force others fishward! Thanks for encouraging the creative in us all - Elisabetta

Hi Babette Thank for telling me about your site. Thank for everything. your are lifesaver! love you .
Date: 02/27/08 12:21 PM
Hello Babette, thank you again for me being the featured member again :) I'm honored. I just love Bakespace and I try to make my site nice too. I love that recipies that I try and add here on Bakespace I will not loose, they are here, both for you to try out and for me to find again :) I have soooo many recipies that I have collected through the years and some that I had tried once and loved, I lost and went into great lengths to find again. But that is not a problem here on Bakespace! Thank you again so much for this site. You are doing a great work here. And I have met such nice people here as well, as a great bonus to all this. Many thanks again and warm greetings to you from Spring Time Wiesbaden, Germany Kolla

hi babbette, thanks for all your help in signing up..i just kept messing up somehow. this looks like a nice place to be!! p.s., i absolutely love macaroni and cheese, too..there's a soul food restaurant nearby that makes the most scrumptous i have ever had, and that includes my mom's (blasphemy, but there you have it) mine doesn't come out good enough to serve to company, but i sometimes make it for favorite are the "hardies" the crunchy overbrowned stuff that sticks to the pan on the sides and bottom..

Date: 12/08/07 01:58 AM

Date: 12/05/07 02:59 AM
Hi Babette, I just wanted to acknowledge all the wonderful work you and your staff do to make Bakespace an even better place to visit everyday. I come here several times a day and have a collected a lot of "To Try" recipes for all the members. Also there is such a great group of people here and i've made alot of friends too. Thanks for being one of them! Hugs....Debbie
Date: 11/25/07 03:51 PM
Babette, thanks for the kind words. Bakespace is a very informative site and has come a long way in the last year. You and your staff keep up the great work!
Date: 11/22/07 06:22 AM
Babette, I'm a member of Group Recipes as well, and after having just scrutinized the terms of both their website and Bakespace, I want to congratulate you on creating a website with terms that doesn't make its users worry about IP and allows them to contribute freely. After reading the terms of the Group Recipes site, I will no longer be participating on their site as I find their terms to be highly unreasonable. So, this is just a long-winded message to say thanks for providing this website, and keep up the great work!
Date: 11/16/07 12:46 AM
Thanks Babs :D I'm glad you like the photo - I may be using a lowly point and shoot (no funds for those fancy dSLRs) but the more I learn about photography, the better I think my photos are getting! Oh yeah, and the banana cake? I can't recommend it enough :D

Date: 08/17/07 04:01 AM
Haikus for Babette I see your effort blossom, extending your reach making hearts joyful and when others cook pans hot, fires throwing shadows your spirit enters lips smacking, hands full forks at ready, steam rising peaceful, happy heart your work satisfies many, touches other people sharing spread widely many being touched gaining confidence and hope with each dish complete gleaming faces, laughter the uncorked bottle empty dinner worth eating. Thank you for having the courage and vision to let food be a conduit of gentleness. Our lives are better because of it. My humble and genuine gratitude. lucas hess
