I need to do a major overhaul of our dinner repertoir. DH is completely bored and I want to find some new and interesting dishes!
I need inspiration and thought I’d start hunting the web for dishes that would work for us! (We tend to stay away from processed foods – so most packaged sauces, soup bases, added sugar type things are out)… which, surprisingly, is limiting!
If you have any knockouts, you think we should try, I’m ALL ears!

Hmm…I like skinnytaste.com and crockpot365.blogspot.com, but not sure they would meet your requirements.
I currently have an Emeals subscription and LOVE it. They do have different options, including gluten-free, natural/organic, clean eating, Paleo…might be worth taking a look at some sample menus and deciding if it’s worth the cost. For us, because I’m tired and pregnant, it is. Between doing a year’s subscription and googling a coupon code, it came out to a dollar a week. No brainer for me!

Pinterest- but be warned, they are lots of either super comfort foods with cheese and carbs usually haha or very healthy quinoa patty-esque. If you sift through a bit there are some gems that I’ve made.

Pinterest… My Mom has been on a kick and making lots of recipe’s from Pinterest. And they have all been delish!

@mstellah: this, and also food.com!
I typicall don’t use processed ingredients either unless it’s like prepared mustard or boxed chicken stock, and I can almost always find something on those sites. I’m also allergic to gluten and refuse to eat animal protein beyond chicken breasts or salmon, so it’s a wonder I can find anything anywhere but I like those sites.
Also, simplyrecipes.com is my favorite cooking blog.
Side note, pinterest cracks me up because every recipe contains cream cheese, canned dough and/or condensed soup, and these recipes tend to be pinned right next to a fun “workout plan”…lol right, gross.

I also like allrecipes. Then if you have an idea of a recipe, you can go and find the BEST one (and even read the comments of how people tweaked it to make it better!) Pinterest is sooooo hit or miss (mostly miss. Lots of stuff that looks delicious, but no one bothers to make and just repins, lol…)

I second epicurious, but I’ll also add Saveur and Food and Wine.

Chowstalker.com…it’s almost all whole foods, so I don’t have to modify so much.

allrecipes.com. I have not made a bad recipe from there yet and I always read the reviews, which contain suggestions from others.

I also ditto the PPs who have said allrecipes. It’s always my go-to if I am looking for something specific. The reviews are great!
I do also have a lot of recipes on Pinterest, but I generally only try things that have a lot of comments on the blog from people who have actually tried the recipe. So far I’ve had good luck! Only one dud from dozens of dishes I have made.
