Recipes and or Food Online (or elsewhere)

Some people still cook from the New York Times.  Like Me.  Above:  Melissa Clark's Greek Goddess Dip.  Yum.
But most folks dig online.  Recipes abound online.  Food info abounds online.  Of course you can google anything and find any kind of a recipe, but it might not always be the best that shows up.  Here are some places I like for recipes.

Epicurious:   (Includes BON APPETIT, GOURMET, RANDOM HSE)  I also love BON APPETIT hard copy... and still miss GOURMET.
Foodily:   (New in 2011--wide-ranging professional recipe retrieval)

FOOD BLOGS  There are at least 10,000 food blogs (See above for best 50)

I have lots of food blogs I love; some are more helpful than others for beginners. 

More Time at the Table is my own blog.  A variety of recipes, stories, etc.  Of course, it's my fave.  On this blog is a list of blogs of which I'm very fond and read most of the time.  Of those, I particularly like:
  • David Lebovitz American pastry chef living in Paris.  Sweet--sweet writing and sweet food. Lots of desserts, but also lots of other.  Follow his tweets, too.
  • On the Road and in the Kitchen with Dorie.  Cookbook author and veteran blogger Dorie Greenspan from NY and Paris.  Well known for her sweets, she's top notch at the savory side, too.
  • The Perfect Pantry  Lydia Walshin's lovely blog about great stuff made from a pantry ingredient
  • Soup Chick 6 new soups every Saturday
  • Sunday Sauce NYT Photographer Andrew Scrivani's, food, etc.
  • Three Many Cooks  ... in Pam Anderson's kitchen.
  • The Family Table   A Canadian favorite family recipes and story blog from cupcake.
