For me, as much as I could sit and watch Food Network and Cooking Channel for hours, I pretty rarely get recipes form them. When I do see something I want to try, I look it up on the respective website (which is super simple since both websites have an "On Air Now" widget).

I frequent the website PunchFork, because it's a round-up site of several cooking blogs and such. I also love the blog BudgetBytes; she's not on PunchFork, so I have her bookmarked separately.

I also subscribe to Everyday with Rachael Ray, Everyday Food (a Martha Stewart publication), Food Network Magazine, and Cooking Light.

Any time I see a recipe anywhere that I want to try, I cut or print it out and organize it in an accordion binder. The binder is filling up much faster than I can try the recipes, but at least I know where they are

Tastespotting.com rocks! It's great food porn, and I've found some of my favourite meal recipes on there.

I'm a server at my family's restaurant, and sometimes when we're slow I will watch the chef cook. I've found some great recipes that way. I enjoy watching Food Network, but I don't often get ideas from there for some reason. I do like to get recipes from Blogs all the time.

I work at a publishing house where we have tons of cookbooks so I usually just sneak a peak at our warehouse to find recipes.

That's what I usually do too! And I might look up the internet to see if I can find something similar.

I just wanted to give my 2 cents, I absolutely love punchfork! I have gotten lots of inspiration from that site.

You should check out the food/drink section on Pinterest. People post amazing recipes from all over the world and the internet. I've found some great stuff there.
If you aren't already a member, I can send you an invite to become one if you're interested!

As far as blogs go though, I really like:
The Girl Who Ate Everything
Chef In Training
& Recipe Girl

Also, BHG(Better homes & Gardens) has a great recipe section on there website & All Recipes is really useful as well, you can even post your own recipes on there.

Hope this was useful somehow.
