Over the years, that’s exactly what I’ve done. I’ve tried great foods, said “OMG, can I have your recipe please?” and yet when I attempted to make the dishes, I would put my own twist on each meal. I’d always make notes of what I changed and then would make adjustments repeatedly sort of “trial and error” for whatever recipe I was attempting that day. This would continue (sometimes for years) until I got it right. The final versions of the recipes that I LUV end up here on the website to share with everyone and get some feedback.
I didn’t want to stop there though. It doesn’t matter how many recipes you have. Whether they’re from recipe books, passed down through the family, or just experimenting in the kitchen; there is always another great recipe out there and I wanted a way for everyone to be able to share their recipes (or rather share “their take” on recipes) that they absolutely LUV.
This web project started when a couple friends wanted to share recipes with one another. It was that simple. There didn’t seem to be a good place online where a person could build their own little “cooking corner” of the internet. A spot where your personality and cooking style came through in the recipes you shared with others. In addition, a person should be able to link their friends and family to their “cooking home page” using their preferred social media outlet. Equally important, the ability to share with others who may be interested in your cooking style and repertoire of recipes. Bundled together in a community that felt the same as we all do. After all, who doesn’t like tweaking a recipe?
For example; we’ll stipulate that there are plenty of websites where you can get a recipe to make biscuits. We’ll even agree there are message boards that will give you advice and give you their secret ingredient to make your biscuits really kickin’ instead of limpin’. However; anyone who knows biscuits knows that Auntie Bea’s biscuits aren’t any “old run of the mill”, “same ole same ole”, “common cloned” biscuit recipe. Auntie Bea tweaks, tests, and has honed that recipe to perfection over the years. What is Bea’s secret ingredient? What’s her process that makes them fluffier than the dense hockey puck recipes you get off the side of some flour package (or the internet)?
To further that thought; why isn’t there a place where Auntie Bea can share that recipe with her friends and family or anyone else for that matter who’d like to know how to make fluffier biscuits. Why can’t Auntie Bea build her little corner of the internet or have an online “Recipe Box” that displays in a profile, her own personality and style portrayed in her cooking. Auntie Bea’s own personal hub where she can link her favorite recipes, her favorite chefs, and her favorite food websites from around the internet. A place where she can share other food profiles she may have on other websites. Well now there is. LuvMyRecipe was born.
