By having the community as the heart of the site, Recipezaar is unlike any other food site out there and makes the everyday cook the star!
Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) October 19, 2006
Recipezaar, a popular cooking community site boasting nearly 200,000 recipes covering every kitchen creation, is stirring up excitement with its delicious mix of Halloween recipes, as well as a brand new look and powerful feature set that makes meal time easier than ever. The newly enhanced site has a more streamlined look and enables visitors to do everything from finding the perfect dish in an instant (choose from 450 search parameters), to swapping cooking tips and pics, automatically calculating nutritional values, sharing customized cookbooks and much more – including finding inspiration for fall foods.
With cooler weather setting in and Halloween quickly approaching, visitors will find many ideas and cooking inspirations, such as:
**Halloween Cookbooks – a collection of spectacular and spooky-looking treats
**Halloween Eyeball Cookies – a spooky take on peanut-butter infused chocolate balls
**Snakes on a Stick – a twisting treat made from bread dough and BBQ skewers
**Pumpkin Cheese Fondue – uses the pumpkin as a clever serving base
**Crockpot Cooking – tons of recipes to keep warm
“Whether it’s Halloween, Thanksgiving recipes, Italian cooking or low-fat, Recipezaar has a community of millions of cooks contributing their own recipes, reviews and tips so you can find exactly what you need or have fun exploring endless new cooking adventures,” said Gay Gilmore, who co-founded Recipezaar in 1999. “By having the community as the heart of the site, Recipezaar is unlike any other food site out there and makes the everyday cook the star!”
Some of Recipezaar’s most notable features include:
**Nearly 200,000 unique recipes, more than 50,000 real-life recipe pictures and 11,000+ community cookbooks combine to create the most comprehensive online recipe collection;
**The new “Recipe Sifter” tool enables cooks to quickly pinpoint the perfect recipe by filtering through more than 13,000 specific ingredients and 450 broad meal categories, including everything from Asian cooking to kid friendly, glucose-free and time to make;
**A nutrition facts calculator shows the nutritional value for every single recipe on the site, and users can also upload their personal family favorites for instant calculation;
**The community interacts in many ways from a central calendar filled with activities created by and for the community, to hosting online cooking classes, asking advice directly from the person who submitted a recipe, affinity groups and even playing cooking games invented by the community;
**Recipe ratings and reviews from community members enable the best recipes to rise to the top – and in the cooking category pages, easily see the most popular buzz topics by selecting headlines in the biggest and boldest font.
