there are so many recipe sites out there. i start with with epicurious.com, then i let hyperlinks or google take me to other sites and foodie blogs.
i like epicurious.com as it is easy to search (give you many options), not busy-looking, very well organized, clean layout and nice pictures.
beautiful pictures are important to make me want to actually make a recipe.
no recipes: gorgeous pictures; asian bent.
fx cuisine: made me want to cook well; pictures are in-your-face large; in the recipe on Real Uzbek Plov, i found out how cool it is to oven-roast garlic; but it does not have to take an hour; i hate all the ads though.
