I was going to recommend BBC Good Food too!

love bbc good food
deliaonline is good too - her recipes are as foolproof as you can get

I like www.smittenkitchen.comsmitten kitchen. I don't necessarily cook that many of the recipes (although the baking is great, and anything I have made has turned out well), but I love the photography and how she writes.

clearly I can't do links. Google smitten kitchen and you'll get there in the end blush

Can highly recommend big fat noodle's blog.

I'm just a home cook and I blog what I cook for dinner every night with recipes and photos. None are hard recipes.

Otherwise you can't beat Good Food!

Good food is the one I tend to use as well - but always read the comments (just the first page will do) as they are good at giving a good apprasial of the recipe, hints/tips and variations and they are good at picking up any issues/problems.

I do find it a bit basic though, good for family weekday meals, (and some of their recipes dhansak ) are nowhere near authentic (I'm not obsessive but if I am looking for a dhansak I would like a dhansak (sweet and sour lentil based curry) rather than a bog standard british style basic curry with a tomato base and a couple of spices chucked in) and am looking for a more challenging one though if anyone has any good ones?

I really like this site which is the blog of (IIRC) a DH of a MNer.

TheArmadillo - I've been using Rak's Kitchen for curries etc. Not sure whether it counts as challenging but seems authentic and everything has been yummy (a delicious korma).

Thanks everyone I have made a note of

TheArmadillo Mon 03-Oct-11 12:35:57

Thanks I'll have a look at that one.

Oh, I like TheLickerBowler

My favourite food blogger is Foot, football and a baby - she has lots of delicious Indian meals.

I have a few easy recipes on my blog (link on profile)

i really recommend its really good if you are looking for inspiration.

I'd say for more fail safe and tried and tested - BBC good food - the comments are great. I also trust BBC food, Channel 4 and UKTV for market kitchen etc.

Delia also safe.

I agree with Smitten Kitchen. Also check out Orangette.

For great photos as well as recipes try Cannelle et Vanille.
