Tastebook, proliferating food companies

Hi --

I'm noticing a proliferation of food or food-related companies. Tastebook. Others. Anyone know if they're any good? Providing good products?

    1. Create-A-Cookbook from is another example. You can make your own cookbook from online and personal recipes, and add stories and photos if you like.

      1. I've been playing around with Tastebook since Christmas-its slow going! Maybe the biggest things they have going for them is that you can use your recipe box from AND you can write in your own recipes and pictures which is pretty nifty.

          Bummer about Tastebook. I thought it had such promise.

          Have you heard of any other companies? Maybe not even Tastebook competitors? I am curious whether Americans growing food interest is being met with companies in sectors beyond the traditional food ones: cookbooks, restaurants etc.

          And, of course, I'm wondering if they're any good.

            Although not cookbook specific, I am looking at where you can make hardbound books (including cookbooks) from free software for what appears to be a very reasonable price. Just started looking at it tonight.

              Anybody had suggestions not related to printing cookbooks?

                    Is that a wow amazing or an are you kidding me amazing?

        2. Tastebook?! I clip recipes and put them in plastic sleeves in a binder (organized by type). For next to nothing.

          Do people really a product to do these things?
