The place where people come for the food, but stay for the conversation ™ 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. lets you create, find and share recipes, publish and sell interactive cookbooks, compete in recipe contests, make new friends and connect with home cooks from around the world. 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, recipes are just the beginning of the journey.

Members can turn ideas into recipes using our BakeBot AI Recipe Maker, share and archive their own recipes in their BakeSpace online kitchen, search and swap recipes in real-time with other members, create and publish and sell their own digital cookbooks in our Cookbook Cafe marketplace, and find cooking inspiration from home cooks around the globe. 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, join today! Need a fun recipe? Check out this cupcake recipe from Founder Babette Pepaj (Devil's Food Chocolate Cupcakes with Ganache Centers and Frosting), which she says can make grown men cry.
