Taste of Home is another great recipe site. It has a good search feature in which you indicate what ingredients you would like in a recipe and it comes up with a recipe for you. Have some sour cream, pasta, gravy and leftover chicken, but need a recipe? TOH will give you one!

Hey, you should check out Reci-P.com . it is a new recipe website that uses social bookmarking to aggregate recipes from the web. Then, using artificial intelligence, it figures out what is the important part of the page, and saves that on the site. give it a try.

Nice list. I also found a collection of sites highlighting top 3 recipes within different categories; soups, salads, drinks and desserts – http://www.top3soups.com, http://www.top3salads.com, http://www.top3drinks.com and http://www.top3desserts.com. It seems that the lists are small for the moment, but I guess people will make them bigger.
