It’s a funny world I live in. I work, live and breathe the internet. I spend a good third of my life sitting in front of my computer. When I need to check the movie schedules, pay my phone bill, or look up just about anything I go online to find it.

When it comes to food for some reason, my wife and I primarily turn towards good old fashioned cookbooks when looking for recipes. I thought about this the other day and I don’t really understand why. There are many sites out there that have great recipes for free, why must we litter our cupboards with books?

There is no denying that good old cook books seem to fit the bill most of the time, but why go out and buy one if you are just looking for a single chicken recipe. I guess my downfall is that I don’t do a lot of the cooking.

Don’t get me wrong, I can cook, and I can cook a lot of things quite well – but as I am a man, I seldom follow any recipes. Even when I do follow a recipe, I often change it up a bit – something that I get dirty looks for from my better half.

Over at ivilliage.com they have a bunch of great food recipes that I have just discovered they have a ton of great looking food ranging from chicken to pasta, as well as great recipes for kids and a number of mouth watering deserts.  I just discovered this site today, and have yet to give any of these a try, but I will definitely be cooking up something I find here!

Anyways, there are a lot of great recipes out there floating around on the internet, so if you are stuck for ideas, go search around and find that perfect dinner, you just might find something perfect, not listed in your favorite cook book.
