Does anybody know a good site for recipes? I know about epicurious.

  1. Joan,

    Go to www.finecooking.com and www.cooksillustrated.com. Also, the magazines are great!

      1. Don't forget the much maligned TV Food Network's web site. That's http://www.foodtv.com. Click on the Recipes & Menu search link. They claim to have over 13,000 recipes online. I was thinking of having scallops the other day and was looking for a new way to fix them. So I entered scallops as a search argument and it came back with 121 different ideas. Just try to ignore the banner hyping Bobby Flay's new sauces. The man has no shame.

        1. Everyone loves to hate Martha. But I love alot of the recipes she posts online on marthastewart.com they are hidden in the daily television section.
          The recipes are eclectic and you guessed it often time consuming and include ingedients that are expensive and hard to find. She even gets famous chefs to share their "secrets" ahem.
          I don't even venture into the complex of commerce that is the rest of the site.

          1. Or try a really large recipe archive: SOAR (Searchable Online Archive of Recipes), which has over 70,000 recipes posted by readers. soar/berkeley.edu/recipes/

            1. I've gotta say, I'm really surprised that no one else mentioned my two favorites besides epicurious.com:

              -- Foodandwine.com (from the magazine). Based on professional chef's recipes and tested. Wonderful ideas, often with very specific wine pairings.

              -- allrecipes.com. Based on user contributions, not tested, but extremely broad in focus. Like epicurious, allows user feedback which can be quite helpful in deciding which of the 15 carrot cake recipes to choose, for example.

              1. I like Recipecenter.com. It has a big collection -- they claim 100,000. It has good advanced search features and you can adjust the yield on any recipe, i.e. from 6 servings to 2 servings.

                I also like the various food departments at ivillage.com. They feature lots of easy time-saving recipies.

                1. For foreign and regional American recipes I like Kitchen Link.

                    Go to Arthur Schwartz's site www.thefoodmaven.com and check out not only his recipes with their *delightful* headnotes in The Maven's Diary section of the site, but see also his "links" to other good food websites. He just wrote Naples at Table and hosts the WOR show "Food Talk". He's also good for seasonal dishes as he'll post recipes in the diary appropriate for impending holidays. I also like the fact that he doesn't have 10,000 recipes, it's just more manageable than some of those huge sites.
                    Have fun!

                    The link below takes you directly to The Maven's Diary part of his site, and it's what I keep bookmarked on my computer, as he is continually adding to this section.

                    1. I really enjoy the black walnut site, Hammons. All their recipes include black walnuts, and some recipes have other nuts in them as well. They offer others to post their own favorite walnut recipes as well.
