Little known cooking websites you've had great sucess with.

I was perusing the "Tried and true of Epicurious" http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/379665 threads. We all know that Epicurious has a great selection of recipes. And then of course there is:

Foodnetwork.com
Allrecipes.com

And if you are into food blogging; Smitten Kitchen.

But what food/recipe websites do you go to that aren't well known? Mine is cookthink.com. It is a website that allows you to enter an ingredient, a style of cooking, a cuisine or even a mood and will produce recipes based on those requirements. Great for that "I'm craving something but I don't know what it is" or having to use up specific ingredients in the fridge.

Let's share and find some fresh inspiration!

    I have seriously enjoyed retrorecipes.com, not for the canned-cream soup recipes, but for some basics that came out in the '40's and '50's, if you were paying attention: Nasi Goreng, Chawan Mushi and the like; ethnic foods that had never been conceived or heard of here yet, and these are the standards for them. Fun as can be to just hang out and check out some things you might've known, but forgotten w/ the mists of time.....

      probably relatively well known, but still worth a mention, Gourmet Sleuth:

            I like the guardian newspaper's recipe search; it's good for combining odd ingredients you've found in the back of the fridge. lots of recipes from well-known chefs who write for the paper.
