I chose all of the above, but mostly I get them from cookbooks. I love collecting them and just looking through them at random!

Allrecipes definitely is a favorite, in addition to the cookbooks I've been stockpiling around the house. My husband loves them too! He just bought a dessert one (He loves to bake!) But I also have recipe cards from family members and even a cookbook that my grandmother's church put together, including recipes from my great-grandparents and lots of good old favorites. I love looking at recipes!

Definitely all of the above, including the comments too! I also check out A LOT of cookbooks from the library and LOVE going through them while watching tv or really whenever. I think borrowing them first is an awesome way to find out what I want to buy, some I will only use/try 1 or 2 recipes and never look at again, others usually include fundamentals that I always like to have on hand. And I'm a huge sucker for pictures, as my eyes guide my stomach. I don't like cookbooks that lack great pictures, with the exception of Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything, and The Joy of Cooking because I just think those are essentials! Foodblogs have become my newest addiction, right up there with my stacks of library cookbooks. I just think these are the greatest things EVER and I can read, and read, and read until the wee hours of the morning!

These days mostly from websites, but I have several cookbooks from my parent's church and community with the awesome receipes that would always be brought to Sunday dinner on the ground. I still cook a lot of the dishes I made as a teenager. My Nanna taught me to cook, and it was all done by "eyeballin'". No exact measurements for any of those, but to this day I still throw them together.

I get most of mine from and, but I have found some really good ones on small blogs as well. I have so many freakin cookbooks and cooking magazines it's ridiculous, and I love to just read through them too cravinsugar!! But only when I'm not hungry, otherwise I start to drool!! :DROOL: __________ Zing!!

I go through everything looking for great new recipes. I find the most reliable, though, are the ones gathered through family and friends. However, these days I have been scouring the internet for recipes.

I'm addicted to the collection of recipes. I subscribe to many food blog feeds for the reason alone, and I love a good browse through a cookbook.

Actually, it's easy to just type in Google the name of the dish and I'll just browse until I find a good one =)

I have some from my grandmother, mother and other members of my family, but I love cookbooks and websites as well. I love the 30 minutes or less cookbooks (not Rachael Ray, but others) and I enjoy combing through allrecipes for good ideas as well.

i used to go online but now i'm in this 'buying cookbook' stage where i want to really learn more about how this ingredient affects another, techniques and etc etc. like cooking fundamentals. i love looking online and looking at th pretty pictures though :D online recipe searching has really diversified my tastes in food
