awesome. time to go ‘borrow’ all the copyrighted recipes from www.foodtv.com and start sharing them. omg did i just say that?

let’s see google to find a recipe that is in text or use a p2p app… maybe this is surprising to others? google is more convenient for me.

citizen: What I like is that it provides a place to store your own recipes, or ones that you find yourself googling over and over.

The other thing is, many people tweak recipes. How many times do you see reviews at allrecipes.com that read “this recipe was great when I added 2x the amount of flour, took out the cream and used honey instead of sugar.” I’d like a place where people record recipes that really work for them.

I hear it will use BitTorrent to share the electricity of your Cuisinart across the network.

Lester: You aren’t missing much. The software hasn’t been updated since 3/03 and the server was down when I tried to sign up for an account. Still, I like the idea.
