BakeSpace: Come for the food.  Stay for the conversation. is a social media website that is based soley around food and sharing recipes. Now that is a pretty awesome social media site if you ask me. Many of the members of this site refer to it as the “Facebook for Foodies”. The site itself is put together nicely, appealing to the eye, and is easy to use. However, when you click on some of the tabs them seem a little cluttered. All of this clutter is put together in squares though and staggered so that you continuously have to scroll down to read everything. See the example of the page below.

On this site you will find everything from featured recipes to cooking help. You can find exactly what entree you are looking for quick and easy with this site because they organize their recipes by category, occasion, course, and method. They don’t stop at just having recipes for humans, they also have recipes for pets.  They even allow you to create your own cookbook and allow users to look at it or you can even sell it!  That section of the site is rather creative because it has all the books with images of books stacked on top of each other, see below. In addition to recipes from the users themselves, they also have a section that list recipes from TV shows and movies, and you know how good the food looks on films. One very creative feature I noticed was this mentor program. These mentors have exceptional cooking skills and teach other members. is also involved in other social media such as Twitter and Facebook. Here they help out customers with new ideas also.


It is a free membership that gives you many chances to reach out and connect with others. It is more than just cooking, this social media site even had a BakeSpace outing in Pittsburgh together. Another cool feature is that you can also store your favorite dishes in your recipe box. This seems like a great way to find new recipes and even improve your old ones that you haven’t quite mastered yet.
