Culinary arts.

I love to cook, but it's just another one of those hobbies that seems to have gone by the wayside since I started grad school. I am pretty good about making a soup a week so I can stockpile individual servings in the freezer for those days when I am in a bind for food and need something quick and easy. And every once and a while I have people over and will try to make deliciousness to entice them to come back again (I live out in East Bum Brooklyn so I do what I can to lure visitors to my neck of the woods). But since I can't cook all of the time, it's nice to be able to feast my eyes on some tasty looking recipes, courtesy of They Draw and Cook.

What I love about this website is that it is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it is a searchable recipe index. Yes, this means if you are looking for a recipe for cookie dough cupcakes, you can plug in a few key words and find a beautifully illustrated recipe that you can download and print. And tack up to your bulletin board or fridge or stick in your recipe binder. With all of the digital rights / artist rights issues as of late, it's nice to see a website that has avoided all of that by creating a welcoming and fun platform for people to share recipes and art, my two loves.
