Where Are The Best Places Online For Recipes?

Lately I have been using the recipe index on bhg.com. They just re-desinged the site so it is definitely top notch. I feel like there are probably a lot resources online for recipes. Does anyone have any favorite sites or recommendation?
reciperesource.com

google.com- just put in what you have on hand
I’ll check out reciperesource.com. Actually I disagree with you on the google.com part because a lot of time I’m not sure what I’m going to prepare for dinner. If I go to a specific cooking community like bhg I can look at what they have and it helps me come up with ideas. Most of the time I follow exactly what the recipe says. Even something as simple as this these caramelized carrots I would have never thought this up

Please help! v.can’tcooktosavemylife

I want to learn to cook, and I want to learn to love it. Right now, the state of affairs looks like this:

– I can make pasta (premade sauce ), rice and vegetarian stir fry. That is all. I tried meat a few times but it always comes out tough and stringy.
– I currently find cooking boring and a waste of my time, which I’m sure isn’t helping things.

I think the only reason my weight hasn’t soared is because I tend to avoid classic junk food (soda, candy bars, chips, etc) and would rather not eat than expend the effort. Obviously that last bit is some flawed thinking. I’m reasonably bright and creative in other areas, so I’m sure I can learn to cook and love it. I think I need a kick in the right direction.
