I need to collect more recipes. Where do you all find your recipes? What are your favorite recipes? What are some quick and easy things I can do? Tips, advice, suggestions? My mom gave me this amazing Better Homes and Gardens Recipe book which I love, but I want to collect some other recipes.

So, please share:)

I'm not the best cook but I can throw down on some pasta. Garlic, Olive oil and and veggie makes a fantastic dish. Yet, after a couple of day my pasta dishes start to lose their charm. Check out my blog and on the left handside midway down is a list of place for recipes. My fave is confession of a pioneer women. She has tons of pictures and very varied. Everything that I have made from this woman website has been spectacular. And yes, I said SPECTACULAR!!!

I look online. Martha Stewart's website has the most amazing recipes. I really don't like cookbooks. There is always way too much in them that ever gets used so its just sort of a waste of space for us. I print out the recipes I like online and collect those so its like a personalized cookbook to our tastes.

Haha...most things though I don't eve use recipes for anyways. Trial and error is the best and most fun way to cook :)

Megan called it! I use because you can read other people's comments below and they say whether they liked it or not and why and also what other things they added or took away to make it better. You can also search for recipes with a couple of ingredients you have or would like to use :)

I look everywhere for recipes. On the back of boxes of noodles, cans of veggies, the internet, sometimes they have recipes in the tin bake pans, and I have Rachel Ray's family cookbook which I think is great, although she semi annoys me, haha!

I get recipes everywhere! I mostly make my own stuff up, but some stuff I make is 'passed on' from my mother and aren't written down... I keep telling myself - I need to write this stuff down... Ha!

I was surfing around some old blogs that used to frequent but hadn't been to in a while when I ran across a comment from you and ended up here. This is a really precious blog and I wish you and your family he best. This blog has gotten me excited because my cousin (and one of my closest friends) is a few months pregnant and I'm pretty excited about the baby. I hope he or she is as cute as yours.

Anyway, I'm commenting because I LOVE collecting recipes. It's pretty much a hobby... a lame one, but a hobby nonetheless. I agree with those who suggested and (especially since you can get recipes from your fav. food network stars, if you have any). But I'd also suggest because they have really simple recipes. I also highly recommend They have amazing looking recipes, and I like the fact that they don't push their brand as much as Kraft does. Also, you may find foodie blogs interesting because the posts are basically a review of the recipe and offers tips. And, of course, you can look at their blog roll for more blogs with recipes. One of my faves is The guy has a VERY extensive library of recipes he's collected and posted reviews on. And the vast majority of them look delicious and fairly easy.

I don't know how old this post is, or if you've ever heard of, but it is bar-none my favorite website for recipes. Don't quote me on this but I believe it's a collaboration of recipes that have appeared in Bon Appetit since it began. You can search for recipes, save some in your online recipe book and even leave notes about them. There's also handy food guides, such as how to buy in season and grilling techniques. There was recently a good article on shopping at farmers markets which I think you'll like.
Anyway, enjoy!
