I'm trying to broaden my foodie knowledge, but am a bit overwhelmed with the sheer number of sites, so I need some suggestions...

What are your favorite food sites (besides Craftster!) and why?

Where do you get most of your recipes/foodie info.?

Are there any amazing food artisans that take the cake in your opinion? (pun entirely intentional) 


Thanks so much for your help!!!   Smiley

For absolute sheer beauty you cannot go past http://tartelette.blogspot.com/. Don't worry about trying to do the same as she does, especially if you are learning. Just enjoy the food pron. Then start to follow links she has- but try to only do a couple at a time. You are right in that it can get overwhelming out there!

I use www.allrecipes.com for recipes because there's a great community there and there are lots of great user rated recipes. You should always read the comments for tips.

I love recipezaar.com. It has the most amazing cooks on there. I like the way the site lets you create your own cookbook, so if you see something you like, you can pull it into your cookbook. I also like the Kraft foods site and the Betty Crocker site. Of course, these sites build recipes around thier products, but I don't always like to cook from scratch so these are good for me.  Pillsbury has some great recipes based on thier bread products. I like the things you can do with a little bit of dough and some meat.  Smiley

Epicurious (www.epicurious.com).  It has old Gourmet & Bon Appetit magazine recipes & people rate them so I can see if something is worth trying.  Wink  Like there is a peach cheesecake recipe to die for on there.  And I have used a great pizza crust recipe on there repeatedly.  One of the reviewers gave a great suggestion to freeze the dough before the 2nd rise & thaw in the fridge during the day for dinner.  I do that now so we can have fresh pizza dough during the week.  There are also cocktail recipes on there.

I also like Cooking Light.  Rarely has something not turned out from that site & it's a little healthier.  There is a yummy antipasto bowl recipe on there and, well, a bunch of recipes I guess I could list.
