Friday food sites for your weekend feast. eatingRD — from a registered dietician · A Conscious Feast — features cooking for company · Steamy Kitchen — focusing on fast, fresh, and simple Asian · Veggie Belly — something for the vegetarians. If that isn't enough, try Project Foodie, a one-stop, independent recipe search site with over 100,000 recipes all in one place. All found because of this cute trailer for Baked Explorations.

My favorite new source for quick, healthy recipies is Cookus Interruptus.

While I always enjoy checking out new recipe sites, I find I generally have the most luck by using Google - or a recipe search engine such as foodieview.com - to look for a recipe name or the main ingredient(s) and/or maybe a general prep type plus the word "recipe" (for example "roast squash recipe", "grilled lime cilantro shrimp recipe", "kale recipe", "clams pasta recipe" ...) and see what comes up. Usually that offers a number of alluring possibilities, and by reviewing a few of them I can pick which mix or amount of ingredients or prep style sound appealing, or at least arrive at a good foundation for a dish based on the common points between them, and have a ball coming up with my own variation. Sometimes, doing that takes me to an interesting new technique or combination of ingredients I hadn't even considered.

That assumes one has some experience under one's belt and feels comfortable being creative and deviating from an established recipe, of course. Me, I enjoy a little adventure with my cooking; and I almost never end up having to order pizza instead!

Sala of Veggie Belly takes the most amazing photographs and she doesn't mind sharing how she does it.

Those are some fantastic food links, thanks! There are some incredible looking recipes on that RD site, a lot better stuff than I expected. I always think of RD's in terms of hospital menus and special medical diets that feature things like canned applesauce and hot dogs.
