Recipe sites?

My wife and I had a great valentines day dinner. The dessert was a lemon sabayon. Naturally I wanted to make it at home. Went to All Recipes and put in sabayon and the site had nothing. Found a recipe on epicurius. All this got me wondering anyone want to share their never fail sites to get that special recipe?

When I want to find a recipe for something I generally start out on Google and search for whatever it is that I want to make ... then start looking at the recipes it finds. This way I don't waste time on any particular site that does't contain the recipe.

Check out the Cooking Links in the blue menu bar near the top of the page. Members have posted lots of TnT recipe links.

I also do what Michael does when looking for a certain recipe. Google is your friend.

I also will do a Google search first and that often leads to RecipeZaar. In this case they have 16 recipes in their database for Sabayon

I've had good luck with Epicurious and with Martha Stewart Living (really.) You could also try Foodbuzz - they aggregate mostly blogger recipes.

Here is a comprehensive and interesting site - essentially an on-line
book written in the 1800's - many recipes and ideas.

While Discuss Cooking is hard to beat, I've also had great luck with recipezaar, Growlies for Groups, The Recipe Link, and the Friendly-Freezer yahoo group. Another great resource is 30 Day Gourmet. Their forums are free and are studded with recipes.
