Do you use the web for recipes? What are your favorite sites? If you don't, why not?
I've gotten wonderful recipe from Alton Brown via FoodNetwork. Epicurious, of course, is great so you don't have to type out the recipes from Gourmet & Bon Appetit. King Arthur Flour has some truly excellent bread recipes. When I wanted to try olive oil ice cream and knew I'd spend a lot of time searching for a store selling it, I went online and got a recipe muy pronto. Then there are favorite food bloggers whose recipes are interesting and sometimes memorable.
All this is to say, I get lots of valued recipes from the net.
If you Google what you are looking for (i.e. beef stew, whatever) you'll be amazed at the number of recipes that will be there. And with the other sites mentioned (Epicurious and Food and Wine plus FoodTV) there's almost no reason to take a cooking magazine anymore.
I on the vastness of the Web for food recipes/ideas.
If I didn't like the feel of a magazine so much, and simply thumbing through it, I wouldn't subscribe anymore. The Web has made my recipe collecting days pretty much over. Unless I find something really stellar, I'm unlikely to save the recipe.
I'm digging http://www.allrecipes.com, It syncs a "recipe of the day" to my Palm Pilot every morning, and more often than not I cut and paste it into my recipe file.
Also, I feel like I can never go wrong with recipes from a few chefs on http://www.foodnetwork.com, Paula Dean and Alton Brown often have recipes that are spot on.
