Your free membership grants you access to your own personalized recipe box, shopping list, and more. You can rate and review recipes, submit your family's favorite recipes, even create your own AllrecipesÒ home page. AllrecipesÒ recently celebrated its fifth anniversary in August 2002.
According to the company: "The site traces its roots back to 1997, when a team of web developers at Emergent Media, Inc. decided to combine their love of cooking with their Internet expertise. Realizing that the Internet had the potential to create a virtual worldwide community cookbook, they decided to build a recipe exchange web site. Thousands of people submitted their family favorite recipes and over time, became loyal members of the AllrecipesÒ community."
The site offers homemakers unique food ideas and resources (including recipes, menu ideas, meal preparation tips, special diet content, culinary equipment and news). AllrecipesÒ has been mentioned in thousands of print publications nationwide and in broadcast features. In addition, AllrecipesÒ has won numerous awards.
