I just came across this site and thought it was so interesting and helpful, I felt compelled to share. For those of you constantly trying to figure out what to make for dinner, they provide WHOLE MENUS each day - not just a main course, but side dishes as well. They also have a very organized list of what to buy, what to get from your pantry and the tools you need. Then, instead of breaking down the steps like a normal recipe would in a big paragraph, they have each step bulleted and the order in which to do each step so that everything is done at the same time. Genius!
Here is the site: http://www.notakeout.com/
This week their guest contributor is Patricia Wells, who has been very influential to Ina Garten (of Barefoot Contessa fame) and whom I love, so by extension I also love Patricia. One of the most appealing things about this site is they emphasize seasonal, fresh ingredients but in a way that isn't intimidating. You can subscribe to this site for free and each day they will email you a different menu. Obviously no one wants to go to the store each day upon receiving the new recipes, but what a great way to build your recipe collection!
