If you're a bit of a foodie (I'll admit, I can be at times), finding recipes on the web from databases is often a... terrible experience. While some repositories like Epicurious do hold themselves to a higher standard, many big sites will put up 28 different recipes for the same meal, 26 of which are awful and tacky "tweaks" on classic dishes without any pictures at all. It's not fun to dig through that.
So, if you're smart, by now you've probably discovered a few recipe blogs that are more "your style" - like The Pioneer Woman, or Closet Cooking. The problem, though, is that digging through these blogs, while it can be fun, isn't exactly time-efficient.
