Every great meal starts with a great recipe! More importantly, every great recipe can be tweaked to your liking. Over the years, that’s exactly what my friends and I have done. Let’s think about it for about a moment. Who hasn’t tried a great plate of food and said “OMG!, can I have your recipe please!?” Then some time later, you find yourself attempting to make the same dish… but while also putting your own twist on the dish.
Myself… I’ve developed a sort of “trial and error” approach for whatever recipe I was using. This would continue (sometimes for years), until I got my version right. The final versions of the recipes I LUV end up here on the website to share with others.
I didn’t want to stop there though. I started thinking, how great it would be if everyone could share the recipes that they’ve perfected… they’ve tweaked. Recipes that THEY absolutely LUV’d… and then wanted to share those recipes with everyone else. LuvMyRecipe.com was born !
This web project started when a couple of friends wanted to share their 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 and share their culinary creations with friends. That is.. without setting up a blog, web hosting and then keeping up with updates and the changes. There’s always the other route of taking pictures of your food and posting online to some social media site.
There’s a place for all that to be sure, but we wanted a place online where a person’s personality and cooking style would shine through in their recipes together as a community. A place where someone could connect friends and family to their “cooking home page” using their preferred social media outlet. Equally important, we wanted the ability for people to share and network with any others who may be interested in their cooking style or repertoire of recipes without getting too involved with the tech of how to do so. We wanted all that bundled together in a community where each member felt the same as each other does. After all, who doesn’t like tweaking a recipe?
Auntie Bea’s Biscuits
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 from the side of a box. Maybe it started out that way… but 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 a second; why isn’t there a place where Auntie Bea can share that recipe or cooking secret with her friends and family (or anyone else for that matter). Maybe there are people who want to know how to make fluffier biscuits. Why can’t Auntie Bea build her own little corner of the internet or have an online “Recipe Box”? One that displays in her online profile and shows her own personality and cooking style. Auntie Bea’s own personal hub where she can link her favorite recipes, link her favorite chefs, and of course her favorite food websites from around the world. A place where she can share other food profiles that she may have on other websites.
We feel we’re on the path towards that scenario here at LuvMyRecipe.com. We are a growing community… if you’d like to become part of our community.. where you too can share recipes from around the world. Register here and begin to create your own little “cooking corner” on the internet right here at LuvMyRecipe… Welcome !
