What's Your Favorite Recipe Website?

Besides DC, that is. I have a few that are "go to" sites for me when I'm looking for ideas.

Simply Recipes - really good recipes here. I haven't had too many duds.

SparkRecipes - Healthier alternatives


Eating Well - The ads can get a little annoying, but they are, after all, trying to sell their magazine.

I used to like AllRecipes, but it just seems like I've gotten too many hit-or-misses over the years.

What recipe websites do YOU like?

I like looking around at Epicurious from time to time.
Might need to check out Spark...never been there.

Food Network's site usually has good recipes I've found, but over the past couple years if I need a recipe almost always I find it on one of the 20+ blogs I have bookmarked.

I don't spend a lot of time on recipe websites looking for ideas. Usually, I get an idea reading threads here or watching TV or on another website and google that idea. Google gives me a list of sites to view recipes.

'Go To' websites include Epicurious, About.com, Food Network (with cautions) and specific food/ethnic websites (for BBQ or Indian, etc.)

Yeah if you use Food Network recipes be careful with your searches and read reviews. As a general rule, I won't use a recipe from there that doesn't have a at least a couple good reviews, luckily you can sort the order of results by rating.

Besides DC, I don't have any favorites.

If I like a recipe on Food Network, I go to their TV schedule which has a link to the show's recipe.

If I'm looking for something in particular, I google and read the recipes until I've answered my question whether it be spices to use or time and temperature.

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Hunting recipes, catch as catch can, read a bunch and decide what I want to do. This is after I search through my cookbooks.
