Hi everyone!
It’s me, Elizabeth, your Consumer Relations Manager J
I wanted to let you know that we’ll be working on some site maintenance tonight, beginning at 9PM Pacific time, 12AM Eastern time. Maintenance will take 2-3 hours. While we are doing maintenance, you will not be able to:
  • Log in or out
  • Upgrade to Supporting Membership
  • Post a comment or question on the Recipe Exchange
  • Upload a photo
  • Save a recipe
  • Post a review or Blog
You will still be able to search for, and find recipes.
Sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks so much in advance for your patience! I’ll post on the exchange and blog once the maintenance is complete.
Thanks again – and talk to you soon!

Maybe, just maybe I can get my beauty sleep (not that it's really neccessary of course). Thanks Elizabeth.

Does this maintenance include not being able to view saved recipes in our recipe box? Because I can't see any of the hundreds of saved recipes. My recipe box looks empty. Am panicking slightly!

Is there anything NEW we should be aware of?

I have only yesterday discovered the blogging that goes on. I've been a member for ages. A good friend of mine in America, also a member didn't know either. Enjoyed reading some of the archives. I wonder how many other members don't know about the blog sites?

About Me is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at
My favorite things to cook
Everything and anything! Allrecipes community is an amazing resource for discovering all types of dishes and treats
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of them! How could anyone choose? All year long our community is cooking and celebrating seasonal holidays and special family occasions. Even the dinners we all have to get on the table every night can be a cherished tradition—or will seem so once the kids are grown.
My cooking triumphs
The millions of recipe choices, the tips and advice, the support and encouragement to try new things or rediscover old favorites make using this site a constant joy.
My cooking tragedies
Who doesn’t have these? Too many to tell really, but from each disaster there’s something to learn and laugh about. Cooking is meant to be an adventure!
