Another vote for Allrecipes.com. I swear by it. Looking forward to checking out the others though!

I have a lot of love for marthastewart.com. I also regularly look for recipes on foodnetwork.com.

A new one for me though has been foodbuzz.com, they send out a daily sample of recipes featured on their member's blogs. I've been inspired by quite a few of them recently!

Chow is alright but nothing to write home about. Very limited recipes in some categories, lack of ratings on many. I love ratings. That is one of the reasons Epicurious and Food Network recipes are so worthwhile - most are rated by many cooks with some great suggestions for variations and improvements. I looked up Pork Loain Roast on Chow and got only a few pitiful recipes.

Slashfood is more concerned with political correctness than recipes - not my favorite.

Cooks.com is my "go-to" 90% of the time also. You can get advanced or simple versions of the same dish, depending on how much time you want to spend. Same with Allrecipes., and I like reading the comments because their really helpful, however, I was unable to get the feature where you list ingredients and screen out others to work for me. Is it me or has anyone else had trouble with that?

I love the Martha Stewart site for inspiration, but am generally not advanced enough, don't have certain ingredients locally, or don't have the luxury of time required, to prepare dishes as "Martha" does.

I like recipezaar.com for searching recipes by available ingredients. It also has a lot of ratings.

I like a whole lot of sites; when I want to start out with any given ingredient, I either google it and start browsing several websites until I find something I like or I check the ones I have bookmarked as I find them nice recipe sources.

I enjoy reading reviews, but some people modify recipes completely or substitute lots of ingredients and write "hmmm, I did not like it" ...

If I have no specific idea of what to cook I will start with marthastewart, foodnetwork, or epicurious.

I usually like reading multicultural cooking ones, I like to try new recipes/ingredients.

Other than King Arthur flour I don't check any brand websites.
