These are great replies! I use a lot of the sites that were mentioned.

The only thing I can think to add is that we have two diabetics in our family so for diabetic recipes and meal help, I like to visit
CHEW ON IT
and
Dlife.com

I don't have one favorite site, yet. Usually, I just google something that I want to make and choose whichever recipe looks the easiest and/or the tastiest (based on reviews) to try.

Default Websites for best recipes? Post your favorites!

What websites have the best recipes? Please post your favourites!

I find the main recipe websites - like Food.com - have mediocre recipes. Far tastier recipes can be found at other websites. Below are some of my favorites. Please post yours! TIA

I've made a coupla of his cakes and like his style, I'm not fond of desserts that taste like someone dumped a large bag of sugar in them and think the ones I've tried were very good.

I've had Tiramisu in restaurants at times that seemed little more than pudding but the Tiramisu on this site ROCKS!

And just a little tip if you try the Tiramisu, if you taste the filling right after making it it will more than likely have a grainy texture and you'll be ready to toss it, a few hours or better yet a night in the fridge and the sugar dissolves fully and you'll be happy you made it.

I tend to back into finding a website by just googling what I want to make, and looking for a recipe that has a robust number of good reviews.

And don't laugh, but I still use a recipe folder. I sit and peruse my magazines every month and cut out the good ones. It makes me feel like a dinosaur, and my family makes fun of me. I'm only in my mid 40's. Oh well.

That's how I found most recipes and don't feel so bad. I have a box with index cards or recipes that I cut out of magazines
