Review by Debbie Mazo


Now that it's chic to be a geek, you can also admit to a lack of finesse in the kitchen. Offering a great recipe database and the latest on food and eating trends, can turn anyone into a chef wannabe.

With over 5000 recipes online, offers one of the best web-based recipe collections around. What makes this site worthy of a visit is its advanced search that lets you find what you're looking for in no time. Type in a keyword, indicate whether you want to search by title or ingredients, specify a food category to narrow down the selection, and in seconds you have a list of well-written recipes.

For example, type in cheesecake and offers dozens of tempting choices like Fudge Truffle Cheesecake or Ginger Mascarpone Cheesecake with a Chocolate Crust. Each recipe includes serving numbers, a site rating, as well as clickable icons that let you print, email, or add a recipe to your own online cookbook that manages on your behalf. Just browsing? Then, click Recipes to check out the list of recipe categories ranging from Appetizers & Snacks to Desserts to Ethnic/International featuring dozens of choices from around the world. There's also seasonal choices to help you celebrate special occasions throughout the year like Apple Sausage Stuffing for Wild Turkey for your next Thanksgiving feast or Bruscetta with White Beans and Walnuts for your next New Year's Eve bash.

With all this talk about food, you'll definitely have some questions. Seek and ye shall find answers in Food for Thought with an archive of articles on everything from cutting back on carbohydrates to exploring the myths on organic food. Help is also on the way when you click Resources—it's full of valuable tools for the cooking process including conversion charts, household tips, and cooking reviews. You can also connect with other food geeks in the Discussion Board where you can chat about food or nonfood-related topics or submit recipe requests. For geeks and connoisseurs alike, definitely gets a gold star!
