Useful Websites for Home Cooking

There have been lots of posts for recipe sites, but any other sites you find particularly useful?
A couple of mine:
http://www.onlineconversion.com/ -- extremely useful when I'm cooking out of my British or European cookbooks with my American measuring utensils!
http://www.foodsubs.com -- a "food thesaurus" -- useful for finding substitutes if you're missing an ingredient, but also acts as a "food encyclopedia" of sorts - provides information on all sorts of ingredients.
Recently I found a great search engine for home cooks way better than using google as it searchs different food sites only..I added it to my other list of searches on my pc and whenever I want to look up something food related..Bingo..foodieview is my choice!!
FoodieView really is a great resource! If you use it a lot, and you have Firefox as your browser, you can even get a plug-in that adds it to the search engines on your toolbar.
(This page has a lot of other food-related search engine plug-ins for Firefox as well)
