Gojee, the photo-heavy recipe recommendations app–think AllRecipes.com meets What the Fuck Should I Make for Dinner–started as Mint.com for food, then became Twitter for food, before its founders finally settled on the current conceit: suggestions based on preferences and allergies, plus what the cook has in his or her larder.

It was a hit! And after some lovin’ from the media and users, Gojee has picked up a cool $1.2 million from Kapor Capital along with Ustream co-founder Brad Hunstable as an advisor.
