What websites do people visit for recipes/cooking related info

There seems to be a lot of online resources out there for recipes. I am wondering which ones people find the most helpful. My favorite site is bhg.com. The site was just re-designed and the "food & recipe" section is super user-friendly and has a wealth of material. My biggest problem when it comes to cooking is creativity. Searching bhg.com has helped provides me with original ideas and helps me think outside of the box so that I don't recreate the same dish every other night! An example would be this open-faced meatloaf sandwich. It's simple and delicious
Meatloaf Open-Facers

Most of the time I go to Epicurious. Will also search the site of a favorite Food Network chef.

The BBC has some great recipes, including one of the best ever strawberry puddings, which I saw made on live tv and was so good the chef and the presenters couldn't stop eating it to give their links...lol. I tend to check what is TNT here at DC because over time I have got to learn that some poepl cook in a way I really like and if they have posted something I'll use it as a starting point. I think thats the bonus of being part of a forum like this rather than just usind an online recipe. OTH I will check out the links too ...:)

Yeah I have heard of epicurious a few times…I'll check it out. If this is your first time going to bhg.com this website has totally improved. I can't get over how user-friendly it is. I primarily use it for it recipe index but it's also filled with tons of other cool stuff.

Shaheen,
I agree that the recipe reviews posted by different individuals is important when I select a dish. They give me a little more confidence when choosing something that I have never tried to prepare before

allrecipes.com and foodnetwork. I like these because of the feedback/rating on the recipes. Those are very helpful. I like to see how others change the basic recipes.
