The idea of foodGizmo began on a fall day close to Thanksgiving 2007. While putting a Thanksgiving day menu together it dawned on us, a group of 4 who really enjoy
cooking, that there wasn’t a single place where we could go to quickly and easily search for our favorite recipes. Every year, we go through the long process of remembering
where (i.e. website or email) we had stored our favorite turkey or cranberry recipe. To make things more complicated, if we were lucky enough to find these recipes,
we had to print them, organize them and then create a menu and compile a grocery list.
Recognizing these difficulties, we realized that there was a significant gap in the online recipe world. We determined that a solution to the "where is my recipe" dilemma needed to be developed. And, as luck would have it, we all had a love of cooking and considerable IT experience. From this sprang, foodGizmo.
As we were talking about how to solve this problem, the ideas started to flow.
What if we could bring the recipe sites together? Create a recipe search engine. Why not provide features, or gizmos, where users will have one website to search, manage, organize and share their favorite recipes, plan menus, create editable and printable grocery lists, and so on and so on? Even as this website becomes reality, we continue to come up with more ‘gizmos’ to add to the site that will further enhance your experience.
So, what started with two of us brainstorming one day, quickly grew into three,
and then four members. And that is who we are today -- the 4 Gizmos, a.k.a the 4G's. This site has been built with the creativity and determination of the 4G's. It is our labor of love, as the four of us have not only enjoyed the creative and technical
aspects of building this website, but also enjoy cooking, and even more, enjoy eating!
We hope you enjoy our site as much as we have enjoyed bringing it to life.
