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

and
Narsai’s Recipes « CBS San Francisco

Sometimes I search the internet using specific ingredients. For example, I used the words
recipes and figs
and found this great website:
Recipes | California Figs
We already have a thread in progress in the Recipes subform. I will merge your thread into that one in the Recipes subforum.

I always start with Easy Recipes, Healthy Eating Ideas and Chef Recipe Videos | Food Network

I usually include the term in my Google search whether I'm using a recipe name or a list of ingredients I have on hand and want to use.

I don't watch their shows much, but I've never been unhappy with a recipe I found on their website.

It used to be recipezaar , and I got bad vibes when Scripps purchased it 10 years ago. Users heard the same old line: there'll be no changes, it'll have the same features, etc., etc. Three years later, it was Food.com, and forever changed.

Whereas recipezaar used to be my go-to site (I'd posted a lot of recipes there, and printed out even more), these days I just search, and I go where the search leads me.

I like serious eats - every recipe I've tried from there has been perfect. I first got pointed in that direction right here on the forum when I asked for tips on making prime rib. I even did the Yorkshire pudding and they came out perfectly too. Photos in my profile for my friends.

BBC Goodfood ~ videos
https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/feature/videos

L'atelier des chefs ~ but subscription is now mandatory, although they still have a few videos on YouTube.
https://www.atelierdeschefs.fr/
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXWKnIksrRA

Don't worry about the languages. It is the techniques shared in the videos that most recipes cannot convey. For example, in this video the chef is showing the "velveting" technigue.

If I am going to use on line recipes I start with allrecipes.com and then try Food Network next. Or I just enter a recipe I want using a product and see what comes up.

No one site consistantly comes up.
All the sites above are good, and I've probably used them all, but just like music from one particular artist, I'm not in love with every single thing/recipe or taste in food that they have to offer.
I'm the same way. I was going to answer "google" to the original question because I use that to kind of winnow down the selection. I don't use any one site more often than others. Although I will admit to sometimes reading Allrecipes just FOR the reviews - it's good "I can't get to sleep" reading.

I usually look on marthastewart.com first. I've been a fan since 1982, when Entertaining came out. I like Martha's PBS shows, as well as her online videos and those from from Sara Carey and Thomas Joseph.

One of my best cooking friends likes seriouseats.com, and he has sent me recipes I've made and liked.

Just finished watching Martha Bakes on PBS. I love it.
