Not just for recipes but for techniques, info, and meta?

I use allrecipes.com usually for recipes. But when I want to look up a technique (or a substitution), I most often end up at thekitchn.com

Yeah, i actually like allrecipes for recipes too

Food.com and Food Network for techniques... sometimes Cooks.com, but I don't hit that one as often as I used to. I *used* to like America's Test Kitchen's site, but now you have to pay to see just about anything, and that hacks me off. For recipes, I like Taste of Home, Allrecipes, Food Network, and Tasty Kitchen (disclaimer: This last one is Pioneer Woman's recipe site, so if you aren't a PW fan, walk away).

Found this one while searching for eggless cake recipe for my kiddo a while back. I can't make many of her recipes because of DS's allergies, but I drool over the pictures.

I really like Smitten Kitchen too.

I don't really use the web for anything other than recipes though. I have How to Cook Everything as well as Best Recipe and I tend to refer to those for basics and techniques and so forth. I also have the How to Cook Everything app and I really like it. Actually, I do use some apps for food... I used to like Gojee, but then they drifted too far from food. I like the Evernote food app but I'm still figuring out ways to use it for organization.

I like allrecipes.com, and use it often. As far as techniques I used books. My faves are James Peterson's Essentials of Cooking, Jacques Pepin's Complete Techniques, and for a great book about the science behind cooking Shirley O. Corriher's Cookwise.To be honest, I'm not even sure these books are still available, I got them when I got married, had a kid, and become a homemaker and decided to learn more about the home cooking my grandmother taught me. These 3 books are still on my bookshelf in the kitchen. I've never needed any others to learn how and why over all these years.

I use Pinterest mostly. All the major food blogs and sites are well represented and I've found a few new family favorites just by chance on there. I do have extensive recipe boxes on most of the major sites like allrecipes and foodnetwork, but Pinterest is definitely my favorite.

Honestly mostly just recipe sites and blogs. I grew up with a chef and while he didn't bother really teaching me I picked everything up watching. I have not come across anything I needed to do in a recipe that I didn't either already know how to do, was explained properly on the blog or I could google pretty easily.

Things have been a little more complicated since I've gone plant based and gluten free but not that hard. Just a little bit of a learning curve making everything from scratch all of the time.
