Online recipes/websites you trust

For those that cook...where do you find your recipes online? I like to read reviews by people, but you never know what their background is...is chef boyardee their version of gourmet?..so their reviews really aren't valid in my book. I did not know if there were other websites where true foodies go in search of great recipes. I get Bon Appetite and Gourmet mags, but I was looking for something online.

  1. My favorite is epicurious.com, which archives recipes from both those magazines, as well as some other sources. Good restaurant reviews, and they've rarely steered me wrong. The other place I like are the forums for America's Test Kitchens....and here, of course.

    1. I agree with epicurious as well. I prob. get most of my recipes from that site. I also use all recipes and sometimes food network as well. ATk is good, but the free recipes are limited. I like to use sites that are rated by readers, which will give tips and likes and dislikes of the recipe---and of course here.

      1. Epicurious is a good site as is allrecipes.com, but the most consistently good recipes, IMHO, is americastestkitchen.com (but you have to pay a monthly fee for the premium recipes).

        1. This website, Chowhound, has given me some excellent recipes over the past 3 years--epicurious also is a trusted source for me. Finerkitchens.com and Recipezaar.com are also trusted sources for me, and finerkitchens.com has a "tried and true favorites" list which has given us some great "keepers."

          1. re: Val

            finerkitchens.com is my go-to every day! (as is chowhound). But I must confess, I get more recipes from finerkitchens and more advice from chowhound.

          2. More links:
            http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/427178 One post in that thread has a treasure trove of sites.
