Wow, and how many of us are addicted to this place! Thanks Allrecipes for the website and a place for all these marvelous recipes!

Absolutely love this site. I find it 'interesting' that when people rate recipes, it goes something like this: "loved the original recipe, but didn't have such 'n such on hand so I used such 'n such instead., so I just gave this recipe two stars. My family though it was just okay. Not great. " Hello? Use what the recipe called for or don't make it until you have the proper ingredients! Until you follow the recipe as printed, don't critique it.

AMAZING. I wonder how many visiters freezer cook?

I just joined all recipes group and have not cooked anything yet but I love the sight. I love that people who rate the recipes are not rude or mean they actually give you tips on how they bettered the recipes and if they don’t like it they explain why. I find this web site to be fun and very helpful thank you. Still looking for my next menu I have not cooked in 4 years so I am a little concerned but you all make me feel supported. Thank you again

WOW, like a lot of things, it seems somehow familiar and comforting to log on to AR in spite of the large # of members. It's a small world after all!

Wow over 3 MILLION members, welcome Mary, hope you enjoy allrecipes as much as I have. There are so many talented cooks on here and so many delicious recipes. I'm on here everyday and so many times this site has gotten me out of the old question what should I make?

Hi, Everyone! Thank you for all the positive comments and enthusiasm. Allrecipes is all about its members and you are the BEST! It's you who have made our site the #1 cooking site in the world! And to answer Cooking in Vermont's question about the source of our 3 million members, it's everyone who has registered as a member on They can live anywhere in the world, but they've joined the dot-com site, not any of our new international sites. Cool, no? Here's to a fun weekend for all with lots of delicious cooking!
