Allrecipes owes its success to you, our passionate community of home cooks who so generously share recipes, photos, reviews, and more. So, as we celebrate our 20th birthday, we also want to celebrate you. Honestly, we couldn't do any of this without you.

Most Recipes Shared

Back in the day, Allrecipes was created because one person wanted to share recipes with another. Twenty years later, that one simple desire still inspires the world's largest community of home cooks to share their own kitchen accomplishments. Topping the list of most recipes published is MARBELET, with 330+ recipes. Here's her number one most popular recipe, Chicken Milano, with 3,000+ makes, 1,640+ reviews, and 250+ photos:

Special shout-out to Buckwheat Queen for showcasing creative (and gorgeous) health-conscious and gluten-free recipes to an appreciative community.


Most Revved Up Reviewers

Sarah Jo heads the list with a whopping 5,500+ reviews. Here's just one of Sarah Jo's informative reviews, this one for Baked Buffalo Wings:
"I did dry my wings before dredging as to prevent soggy wings. I increased the garlic powder to a full teaspoon and omitted the salt as I was using a salted butter. EXCELLENT. No leftovers. Great for Superbowl Sunday."

Special shout-out to Rock_lobster and her haiku reviews (900+) that cleverly combine a classic 5-7-5 haiku poem structure with useful feedback. Here's a sample from her review of Killer Chili:
This was quite tasty!
I made it a day ahead.
Simmered it long time.
