Just bumping up this thread in the hope that more people can add links to the very best recipe sites.

This is such a useful resource. Well done, all.

I have posted this website on another thread, but no reason not to post again on this thread - it is a chocoholic's dream website ......... Smile

in fact, looking at it again tonight, I might attempt some chocolates - they look pretty good ....Ok

I like the UK TV Food site when I'm looking at an ingedient and have no idea what to do with it. I got a lovely grilled duck breast recipe and a pretty good pork mince greek kebab recipe from there. I need to fiddle with the kebab/patty recipe to get it just right for G and I but it's promising.

BBC have a similar site which I use occasionally, but I get more recipes from the UKTV one.

I have some more food blogs bookmarked on the upstairs pooter (including Cottage Smallholder 🙂 - I'll dig them out next time I'm upstairs.

TA, I have a bone to pick with you    Big_Laugh  - all those websites caused me to sift through them - took me hours!!!!  Big_Hug  Ta everso.

In 'The Wednesday Chef' - doesn't that book look fab (Good to the Grain) - apparently Kim Boyce was a chef and pastrycook, so knows her stuff.

Embarassed  Sorry about that BS, I get quite carried away sometimes.  I have a whole lot more but I'll save them for another time.

But - here's another one for veggies.  Whistle

Oh, and 

http://closetcooking.blogspot.com/

just to be going on with you understand.

You might be wondering why, if I have no appetite and rarely cook, I read food blogs.  The answer is that I try to create an appetite - it hasn't worked yet, but I'm working on it.Whistle

I'll try that again!

Thanks for the veggie suggestion TA. Much appreciated. I shall have a forage through this when I have a minute (hopefully later this afternoon since I am playing hooky from work). Also had to laugh at one of their links..."I married an omnivore..." perhaps I should start a  mirror site  ..."So I married a vegetarian'....

Life is uncertain ………… eat dessert first!

Here's another that I like, for the stories that go with the recipes as much as anything else, she writes very well.

Tasting Spoons
