    I use allrecipes and recipezaar, both mentioned here by others. Both of them have ratings systems and comments, and allow photos of food, and I prefer recipes with all three to help me judge whether it's good or not.

    A while back, someone posted an amazing recipe site that had the best pictures. The recipes were a little more high end and the pictures were all fab. Does anyone remember the site I'm talking about? I tried searching the old recipes thread, but I couldn't find it.

    Re: Cooking Websites

    When my students were doing reports on countries and wanted to include info about food and recipes I just googled "Greek recipes", or "Italian recipes", etc. Some of the finds were really out there as far as food uses and combinations I never would have thought of. I remember one recipe a student made up that was rice with coconut milk and mustard seeds. Really unique and good! The little crunch of the seeds with a burst of flavor amid the creamy, sweet rice. Mmmmm. Sometime when you're just playing around try googling the word "recipe" with a country you think might have interesting food.
    Count your blessings!

    Re: Cooking Websites

    I'm not sure if this is the right thread to ask this question, but my book club has decided to consolidate our recipes into a cookbook. They've placed me in charge of this task and need to know where to begin looking. There are only 10 of us in the group, so we don't need a lot of copies.
    Thanks for any help.

    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    I belonged to a club that did that and we each bought a 3 ring binder and plastic pages where you insert the paper page and dividers.
    Then we just made copies for everyone, handed out the pages, designed a cute cover to slip in the binder front and everyone was then responsible for putting their own pages in the plastic sleeves.

    And everyone was responsible for typing up their own recipes and then we gave them over to one person who made the copies and we split the cost of the copies.

    Thank you livin - The problem I am having is that most of these sites have a minimum order of 100. I'll check out Heritage and report back. Thanks again!

    luvsginger: My great-aunt wrote down all of her recipes a few years ago and her daughter had them copied and bound at Kinko's. They helped her with a cute laminated cover and I doubt it was very expensive. She gave them out as Christmas gifts to her grandchildren and her favorite great-niece

    Just a few ideas, but she included several blank pages and also had a couple of plastic "pockets" put into the book so that we could add recipes easily. She also put in a lot of tips/hints and food memories ("this was what Doxie requested for her birthday every year"... etc.). I just LOVE that book. Good luck!
