Our Story

It started with a cookie 10 years ago, a UW anthropology graduate student craving his mom’s homemade cookies got to thinking this new thing called the Internet would be a really cool place for cooks, to exchange favorite recipes.

He created abouteverythings.com as an experiment to see if others would respond to his idea. As it turns out, cooks had a huge appetite for sharing recipes; the site was an instant success. Over the next 7 years, He and his crew rolled out more sites and social features allowing cooks of all types and interests to connect through recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, profiles, blog posts, personal collections, and more.

What started with a single cookie recipe has grown organically to become the world’s largest food-focused social network with a community of 50 million home cooks consuming 2 billion pages annually of food inspiration across our 13sites serving 19 countries in 11 languages. I invite you to join our one-of-a-kind community that inspires home cooking and celebrates the foods we make with friends, family, brands and followers. Calling all cooks!

Sincerely,
