This one, called Foodily is a recipe collection site. MJ, you might ask, don't we have enough recipes for food we never make/use/eat? And I would answer, no, I don't think so! Of course, at one time in my life I owned around 200 recipe books, so I'm not the best source of unbiased information on this subject. Truthfully, I usually only use recipes as springboards, especially since moving to Culebra where you can't just run out and get that not-usually-around-the-house item. But for that very reason, something new and different sparking my food imagination is a very good and welcome thing.

Unsurprisingly, or maybe surprisingly, the other site is about home. It's a home design site, but a whole lot more. My brother turned me onto it because he is building a home in North Carolina and sent me a bunch of photo ideas from the site. I was immediately hooked. You can type in everything from tiny homes to houseboats to cabins to rustic kitchens to tree houses and get all sorts of visual eye candy (and just like any candy store, some will have that icky filling but you just keep going and find the good stuff - no one is watching, break 'em all open until you get what you want).
