About the site

Stalkerville is the new home for chowstalker and dessertstalker which are gluten-free, real food recipe sharing sites based on paleo principles.  We combined the sites and re-launched them on a new domain to provide a platform for additional galleries, like gardenstalker that are interesting to those living a happy and healthy paleo-inspired lifestyle.

The history

Chowstalker was launched February 9, 2011 to help people find healthy, paleo inspired recipes and to showcase the many wonderful cooks that take time to photograph and post their creations.  At that time, we didn’t accept recipes for paleo treats.  But a lot of people told us that even though they wanted to eat “real food” they still wanted an occasional treat, and they wanted a place to find recipes for healthy options they could feel good feeding their children or serving at a birthday party.  So we created a separate website, dessertstalker, which basically followed the same guidelines as chowstalker, with a more lenient policy regarding sweeteners.

We soon realized that many recipe submissions were actually a good fit for both chowstalker and dessertstalker, and that the overhead of running two separate sites wasn’t necessary. The sites were relaunched as Stalkerville on August 1st, 2013. Over the following year we built a loyal following and became the “go-to” site for people searching for recipes satisfying the requirements of many special diets.

The present

Then, unfortunately in March 2014 and in the middle of plans for expansion with other “… stalker” categories and recruiting expert moderators to approve, edit and publish recipes, the two owners (Patty and Ron) separated and Ron was given ownership and responsibility since he was the technical lead.

I (Ron) have plans to revive and continue to develop the site and get more involved in the “paleo-inspired” community, but that has to wait until I have the resources (time and money) to do so. In the meantime, thanks for visiting and I’m happy that so many are finding the archive of recipes useful.
