Someone here (I think) posted this link for a website where you list what you have in the fridge and then it spits out a recipe. Does this sound familiar? ANyway, list yer favorite recipe websites.

I use Allrecipes, and I also use the Food network page (http://www.food.com) and Epicurious. (http://www.epicurious.com) I like these sites because they allow people to post their reviews of recipes. I find that extremely helpful, as they often will post helpful tips and additions.

Those are exactly the ones I use, for the same reason. :)

I sometimes do a regular google search too, especially when I'm looking for something unusual that may not be found in the other databases. I just type the name of the dish and "recipe" and occasionally add any essential modifiers. When I find a few good candidates, I send them to DH and he'll develop his own interpretation of the dish -- as a former chef, he can't just use someone else's recipe verbatim. :teehee: I have to admit though, that on the rare occasion when I cook, I usually end up making a hybrid too. I guess it's just natural to want to take the best things from different sources, and make your own special version. ;)

Is this the one you were looking for?http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf

The other sites probably have better recipes, but this one has the "enter the ingredient" feature.

I use Food.com and Epicurious.com and cookinglight.com

Allrecipes is okay, but not my favorite.

I find CopyKat.com to be fun as you can get recipes of restaurant or retail foods there like Twinkies or Olive Garden Salad dressing etc. I use All Recipes a lot and I like the American Heart Association website's recipes for my husband's diet (mine too if I behave myself like I should!)

I really like to cook so I have a ton of cookbooks I use also. Since my husband's 2003 heart attack and then his heart bypass surgery in Sept, I have learned how to cook using Pam a lot instead of oil, and my best friend has become ff beef broth and chicken broth in a can along with my crockpot. I have a meat and potatoes guy and it was hard at first trying to find food he would eat not loaded in fat, but this really made a big difference. Since you can now get lower sodium broths and soups you can really make a difference in your cooking without losing the flavor.

Allrecipes.com is my favorite. The reviews are soooo helpful. If you go to advanced search, you can put in ingredients and it will search for them. You can even exclude things, such as"I want chicken and tomatoes but no peppers!"

Hi everyone. I like to use Recipe Resource.

http://www.recipesource.com/

Here's another one: http://www.minutemeals.com/

That's a couple to get you started. I also have a few crockpot/slow cooker links that are pretty nice too.

Good luck! Isn't the internet a wonderful thing?
