Recipe/Cooking websites please

datoofairy, Feb 14, 7:30pm
I am fixing up a computer to give to a friend who has never had one before and is just learning about the internet.
I want save a few cooking/recipe sites for her, to give her some ideas of whats out there.
She's an older, semi-retired lady who lives with just her retired husband. I wouldnt think she would be into gourmet cooking, just your average, every day kind of food.
Please can anyone suggest a few sites she might enjoy, to get her started. I know she will eventually find her own favourite sites, but the choice is quite overwhelming if you've never been on the internet before so I want to give her a few good ones to start with.
Thanks :o)

www.foodlovers.co.nz is great and has a forum as well

Thank you both, I will check those out for her.
I know Google is the best bet for most of us, but when you've never been on the internet and have never used a computer before, Google is very overwhelming and having so much choice, some of which isnt what you want, can be off-putting.
I figure a few good sites she can just click onto might help her gain her confidence and learn her way around :o)

I also recommend this site. Run by Helen Jackson and has some wonderful recipes. The forum is a very friendly and helpful place too.
