Epicurious.com

If you haven't yet discovered this site--GO! It is the best online resource I have explored for finding new and good recipes. You can search by ingredient, occassion, and fork rating. You can even start your own recipe card index online, or print them out in three convenient sizes to however you store your recipes in the kitchen. The Guinness chocolate cake is amazing!

EPICURE:

One with sensitive and discriminating tastes especially in food or wine
synonyms EPICURE, GOURMET, GOURMAND, GASTRONOME mean one who takes pleasure in eating and drinking. EPICURE implies fastidiousness and voluptuousness of taste. GOURMET implies being a connoisseur in food and drink and the discriminating enjoyment of them. GOURMAND implies a hearty appetite for good food and drink, not without discernment, but with less than a gourmet's. GASTRONOME implies that one has studied extensively the history and rituals of haute cuisine.

CURIOUS:

Marked by desire to investigate and learn.

You do the math!

Though I am not yet in any home's role as primary cooker extraordinaire I have already saved several recipes I am eager to try. Right now my future, hope-chest, soon to be apartment kitchen equipment consists of a splatter shield, an old pan and an ice cream scoop. Oh the essentials!
