Some Great Recipe Sites


Here are six of my favorite recipe findin' sites...

1. Food Network - there are recipes GALORE here. I like to watch the Food Network (a few shows) and then if I see one I want to try I go find it online and print! viola! I am a visual person so just reading the ingredients doesn't tell me much - I like that I can see it and see it being prepared. Then I can determine if it is something I want to try!

2. Tammy's Recipes - I like this one too! It is a blog with lots of recipes, kitchen tips, and a WHOLE lot more. Tammy is very sensible and nothing here is too overwhelming - you can do it too!!

3. Super Cook - now this is a neat-o site! You can enter the ingredients you have on hand and viola! inspiration is on the way - and you don't even need to run to the store! It cranks out recipes depending on the ingredients you put in!

4. Paula Deen's Site - GURL if you are from the south (or just love home cookin' ) your gonna love this one! Who doesn't like butter and mayonnaise! =)

5. Good Stuff Maynard - this is another blog with some yummy home cookin' recipes! I've seen several I would like to try! Another one that ANYONE can try! (Not too difficult - but not bland either!)

6. A Year of Crockpotting - I just found this one recently but I am intrigued because I really don't use my crockpot much except for a few recipes and I would really like to learn to use it more since it is such a time saver!!

What other recipe sites do you visit - I would love to add to my bag o' tricks! =)

I enjoy Taste of Home's site for recipes (tasteofhome.com).

Susanna said...

I LOVE www.thepioneerwoman.com/cooking

Her recipes are fantastic, and the commentary is always entertaining!

I use allrecipes.com a lot, but I am definitely going to check out that crock pot one!

My stand-by recipe site is allrecipes.com, and my new favorite is whatcanimakewithit.com - very useful for when you have surplus anything, and you don't know what to do with it. I found it when my family decided they no longer liked Raisin Bran, and I had quite a stockpile of it - found some great muffin recipes, and they were a hit!

The Recipe Zaar is my favorite because people can go in and rate the recipe after they have cooked it and also add comments like what they liked about it and how they tweaked it. I also like when a recipe has a real picture...not something a "food stylist" has prepared!

Amanda said...

I love www.hillbillyhousewife.com.
It is great for anyone learning how to cook from scratch. She gives very clear directions for every recipe.

KristiW said...

I ditto the Pioneer Woman Cooks. Not only is she funny, and the recipes are fun... she takes the BEST step by step pictures. Her main website is a fun read too!

Sara said...

Hi there,

I'm new here and love it. I love ALL the things I've ever cooked from Southern Living. They have a ton of recipes on the recipe finder section of their site. http://www.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder/main

Also, I just discovered Bakerella's blog. CUTE CUTE CUTE cupcakes and other treats. She gives recipes and photos. http://bakerella.blogspot.com/

Happy cooking and thanks for the tips.

I have heard of and used most of these sites and wanted to say I enjoy hillbillyhousewife too.

I've used AllRecipes for a number of years. They seem to have just about anything you want. It's always helpful to read everyone's comments as you often find a common change to the recipe that everyone agrees on that makes it better.

I have used AllRecipe and Epicurious. But now I am hooked with thepioneerwomen. Here site is easy for cooking-challenge like me to follow the step-by-step along with great pictures. Plus read her love novel.. Fun reading.

Frugalrecipes.com has some interesting recipes. And I love recipezaar.com as well. Supercook.com has a great feature where you list a few ingredients you have on hand and it will list recipes for you. Great when eating out of your pantry!

Jessica said...

My favorite is allrecipes.com because of the search feature. (http://allrecipes.com/Search/Ingredients.aspx) You can type in "ingredients I want" and also "ingredients I don't want", as well as some other search words and even search by type of recipe. This is helpful to find a recipe when I have a few ingredients I need to use up.

Freelancebyu.com said...

if you like recipes you can earn a FREE recipe book when you refer 10 friends (tastebook.com) I am working on this and you can contact me for a referral if you want to help me and help you too or just click thru! these recipe books are sponsored by the big names! I have been a SUPERCOOK user since its beginning and heard about the crock pot site yesterday from another friend. I also use the paperback swap to get free recipe books! Other than the ones you listed I am with the FRUGAL COOKING group on GATHER join me & friends there I have a post about it! you can earn points to cash in for Gift Certificates just for commenting on recipes, how cool is that! I have more recipe tips but um, I am writing a book here! GREAT SITE YOU HAVE!

Rapunzel said...

I've just discovered the crockpot site as well and love it!

Allrecipes is a constant staple.

Kalyn's Kitchen is awesome and she has beautiful pics, lots of veggies!

Denise, I love
http://allrecipes.com/
especially like it when it gets down to the last few days before we can go to the store and we have only certain ingredients. You just type them in and see what recipe it pulls up. Very useful.

Christa in SoCal said...

I've found that I really enjoy recipe blogs and many of them have search engines to search all their past posts. Here are my two favorites:
This Minneapolis couple blog about their weekly meal plans and then update throughout the week with what they thought about each recipe: http://agoodappetite.blogspot.com/

Food blog with TONS of good recipes; this one is pretty tried and true for me so far: http://www.elise.com/recipes/

Thanks for your frugal blog, Denise!

Justine said...

I have the best luck with foodnetwork and epicurious myself. A friend tipped me off to recipezaar.com just yesterday... but I haven't checked it out yet.
