I love to cook. Do you? If I had the time, I’d cook all day, trying out new recipes, experimenting in my kitchen like a mad scientist. A dash of this, a little of that and voila! An amazing sauce!
Sometimes, I’m presented with ingredients that I have no idea what to do with or I find something in the fridge and wonder, “Is this still ok to eat?” Other times, I need some recipe inspiration. So I turn to a couple of my favorite websites for some help. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite websites so that you can have success (and some fun) in the kitchen, too.
www.foodsubs.com – The Cook’s Thesaurus. Basically, it’s a cooking encyclopedia with info on thousands of ingredients and kitchen tools.
www.stilltasty.com – Find out the shelf life and best storage tips for hundreds of foods.
www.calorieking.com – Want to know how many calories are in that cookie? The have the nutrition info for thousands of foods and beverages.
www.cspi.org– The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a.k.a, the Food Police. They do some great undercover work and have revealed the truth on everything from movie popcorn to chemicals in foods to fish safety.
www.drweil.com is my go-to site for alternative and integrative medicine and some fantastic recipes.
