Dear Project Foodie Users,

Sadly and with a heavy heart, I have decided to shut down Project Foodie on December 28th, 2015.

The past 9 years have been a wonderful journey — I met many amazing people, learned an incredible amount and had a great time helping food lovers (including myself) keep track of recipes.

I hope that you too have enjoyed Project Foodie and the fruits of my labor, and that of the various people who helped me over the years with Project Foodie.

For those of you who would like the details of recipes in your recipe box please reach out to me ( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it )

What people are saying about Project Foodie

Vanessa Barrington on EcoSalon lists Project Foodie as one of the top ten creative, fun food websites. 

SavvyHost ranks Project Foodie as one of the top ten recipe recources!

Cooking During Stolen Moments says:

"The tag line: “Serving the foodie lifestyle.” The site: Project Foodie. I could literally spend all day looking through the great articles and recipes. I definitely recommend all you fellow foodies check it out!"

Sweet Karoline: Adventures in Food says:

"this ingenious site that searches only reputable food publications and provides the user with links to recipes that will surely not result in disaster. No longer is it necessary to while away the hours in fruitless search of an elusive dish (although, I admit that there is nothing that I would like more). Nor are you forced to place your evening meal in the untrustworthy hands of less-than-average-blogger-Joe. Registration ensures that you can return to your favorite recipes again and again -- carefully bookmarked in your very own e-recipe box, ensuring that your prized instructions won't be set aflame on a misdirected burner or covered in Bordelaise sauce."

Culinary School Guide ranks Project Foodie as one of the top 10 Blogs for Foodies.  

Confidence in the Kitchen says:

"What I stumbled upon however seems a gold mine power search engine for recipes from periodicals and newspapers: Their header reads: serving the foodie lifestyle. I agree that they certainly do as it will search seventeen (yes 17) periodicals all at once for any recipe. You can also put in a search such as Real Simple December 2008 recipes and it will list all the recipes in that issue. So many ways to search! Further, within the list of recipes from the issue, it will allow you to cull out only the cookie recipes (among other categories).

No need to carry a pocket scanner, notepaper or pen to find those recipes you encounter in waiting rooms. If you can recall the month and year the search is complete in seconds and if the type of recipe just looked interesting, you’ll find many versions of the recipe out there in cyberspace.

This timesaver gets an enthusiastic pens down and thumbs up from this busy lady. Give it a try yourself!"

Kitchen Spark says: 

"I wanted to a share another tool that has become valuable in my kitchen. Project Foodie is a website that compiles recipes from various food magazines such as Cooking Light, Food & Wine, and Eating Well. Just to name a few! There is a Recipe Box feature that allows you to save recipes for the future.

I, um, have a *ahem* little magazine addiction. I cannot tell you the money this site has saved me. I save the recipes that interest me and wait until I can get the actual magazine at the library to read. When I'm looking for some inspiration, I simply go to my recipe box, click on a recipe and then (after being taken to the magazine's site) print off said recipe. Saves a lot of time!

I've been on the site a lot lately as I'm slowly getting back into my cooking groove. I say bring on the fall! I'm looking forward to soups and stews and braised meats!

Cooking up Memories says:

"I found something for you … It’s called Project Foodie. And it’s going to make your house so much cleaner! You see, once you register with the site, you can search, save, tag, comment and review recipes from 20 magazines! (Some magazines included are: Bon Appétite, Cooking Light, Cook’s Illustrated, EatingWell, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Everyday Food, Fine Cooking, Food & Wine, Gourmet, Saveur, and Southern Living).

I cannot tell you how much easier your life will be with this tool.

NO more separate passwords for each magazine’s site. (I currently have at least 5)

NO more wasting of time trying to remember which site had which recipes. (Again, at least 5 sites - and it’s never on the first 3 I check)

NO more jotting down vague notes of recipes you’ve found in doctors offices or waiting rooms. (And getting home to wonder why you wrote down shrimp quesadillas on the back of a Target reciept.)

NO more searching through scraps of paper for that recipes you KNOW you cut out to save. (We won’t talk about my “folder” system - it doesn’t work.)

NO more dog-earing magazine pages. (This is my current method - and since we get at least 4 of the above-mentioned magazines, our house is littered with back issues.)

Seriously. I am in love."

 MCLC Tech Talk says:

"... It’s an easy way to search for recipes from a variety of magazines, newspapers, and cookbooks. ... I did a search for pancakes and got over 200 results - the interface is pretty nice and simple to use. It’s very simple to save a recipe to your personal box. ..."

Bitchin Lifestyle says: 

"We like this idea because it keeps your kitchen cupboards free of old recipes in musty magazines and crumbling, yellowed newspapers."
