Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

I would really like to find the perfect cream cheese crepe recipe, cook it, and put it into a collection. 5 years ago

ben358vegetable jalfrezi

Made a vegetable jalfrezi – ticks all the boxes. Jamie Olivers’ recipe is naff though.. fortunately I reckon I can improve on it quite a bit. 5 years ago

ben358get recipes

As a student, a recipe must satisfy either of these criteria:

1) (weekdays)
takes less than 20mins
uses non perishable inexpensive ingredients

2) (weekends)
can take as long as necessary
uses inexpensive ingredients
serves at least 4
can be frozen and then microwaved

Unfortunately I have very few recipes that satisfy either of these, so my food is a bit repetetive. Hence the goal to collect more recipes. 5 years ago


I live in a house with people from all over the world, and they know so many yummy and interesting recipes. Almost all ridiculously healthy. Even so, I still find myself cooking trusty Italian-inspired food. I work in an Italian restaurant, and tomatoes, garlic, parmesan and pasta are so versatile that it has become my default cuisine. But there’s more to life than pasta and bruschetta, no matter how satisfying they may be. My next project is to collect all the best recipes from my housemates. And perhaps start trying them out. 8 years ago

It’s practically all I ever need to find a new meal to make and everytime I’ve searched to find a specific kind of recipe it’s been there. 8 years ago

a work in progressMove over Emeril...Hardly but I am getting better!

In the last few days I’ve done never before made meals. Tonight it was a Roast in my Slow Cooker and was SUPER easy to prepare, mushroom soup, lipton onion soup mix and spices. Meat came out super tender, falling apart with a scrumptous sauce. Also cooked potatoes with it and they were nice and yummy, way easier then frying them up and much healthier I am sure!

The other night I did meatballs in sauce and have never before made meatballs. I love learning new recipes and my confidence in the kitchen is growing everyday! This is one of those things though where it’s important that I “compare myself to no one but who I was yesterday,” otherwise the accomplishment will seem diminished and frankly embarrasing! The only bad thing about tonights meal was there was too much fat on the Roast and it was very unappealing when you got some of the fatty parts.

Unfortunately my daughter is having nothing to do with suppertime and rejecting every food I try on her. Life is cruel when you are saddled with a toddler as picky as you! She tastes tests everything with her tongue first and I think like me she is very sensitive to texture. 8 years ago

Last night I made my first ever Stew, I know that’s pretty sad but I never really gave it much thought. I am tired of making all the same meals or the same kind of meals though and want to keep trying new recipes. The stew turned out really nice though, unfortunately my toddler was having nothing to do with it! 8 years ago

a work in progressMeatloaf (the food not singer)

Allrecipes is a great site for finding recipes. I was searching for a recipe to use ground beef and got a nice simple recipe for meatloaf that sounded tasty. And was it ever, and it also smelled SOOO good cooking. Although my husband wanted to kill me for having the oven on in the weather we’ve had lately. It was a unique recipe in that the glaze was on the bottom of the pan instead of over the loaf. You line the bottom of the pan with brown sugar and pour ketchup over the brown sugar. I didn’t have any ketchup left so I used A1 instead. I think it might actually taste better this way as the sweetness of the brown sugar and the zip of the A1 was a nice combination. I made it with garlic mashed potatoes, another recipe I got off the site. The thing I am most proud of is that I adjusted both recipes based on what I had around the house. I lack confidence in the kitchen so even though these things might come easy to some it is a challenge and a risk for me to “experiment”. I know as far as “healthy” goes meatloaf doesn’t really qualify. But everyone liked it so I will make it again! 8 years ago

a work in progressEasy to make crockpot recipes

I really want a plethora of recipes to make in my slow cooker. Uncomplicated, full meal deals with things people usually have around the house. I am open to being more adventurous but I want a good list of things that I can make with little effort that taste good but are also “fairly” healthy.

I like Hamburger Soup and it’s super easy to make as well as adjust to your own liking. Probably everyone knew about this easy to make recipe but I never did before. My husband loves it and I feel pretty good about making it and get my dose of vegetables. Probably though its not very healthy and I don’t even know it! If its not I dont want to know! 8 years ago
