    You'll also see occasional references to Zmail, which was that the RecipeZaar messaging system was called.

    I love it here and have learned a TON from the great people here.
    Some folks are not happy with the change over but it still remains a great place to find recipes, ask questions, get answers & chit chat about food!

    I always assumed it was created from "recipe bazaar", not to be confused with bizarre. icon_lol.gif

    "Launched in December 1999, Recipezaar (originally Cookpoint.com) is an online community for people who like to cook. The site was started by two former Microsoft employees in Seattle. Users have posted hundreds of thousands of recipes to the site and hundreds more are added each day.

    The company has been profitable since 2002 and never took outside funding. On July 19, 2007 Recipezaar was acquired by Scripps Networks (a division of the The E.W. Scripps Company) for a rumored $25 million. Scripps is the company behind HGTV and the Food Network. They’ve said that Recipezaar will function separate from, but as a complement to FoodNetwork.com.

    Recipezaar reported 2.3 million unique visitors in June 2007, which combined with FoodNetwork.com’s visitors will increase Scripps Networks’ audience share to 19 percent.

    In 2010, Scripps Networks rebranded RecipeZaar as Food.com, and phased out the RecipeZaar.com brand. RecipeZaar now redirects to Food.com."

    It's probably a play on both "Czar" and "Bazaar." icon_wink.gif

    RecipeZazz, to be uniquely distinguished from RecipeZaar, is an up and running food site. I love the features here. The only thing I have concern about is the gratuitous commercialization.....the ads. Food.com is rivaled only by TWC in this respect. Companies like Scripps are blinded by advertising (much like you are if yo pay any attention to them. Some companies want to be food, sports, fashion, etc., sites, when in reality, they are only advertisement companies.

    Aside from that, Food.com is a great entity... just a bit to blinded as to think we don't know the realities of such a site.

    I'm still here, and I am, for the most part, pleased. That cannot be true for many in the long run. Trends vary.

    RecipeZazz is Kittencal's new site. They accept advertising, too, incidentally.
