"You like weekend cooking," was what my wife told me the other day.  By that she means that I like to spend a lot of time preparing somewhat complex food, and it's a very true assessment.  My secret, or one of them, is that I find great recipies on Epicurious.com.  Typically I have a few key ingredients I want to work with, and I can generally enter a search that uses them all and find great ideas.  I never use Google to search for recipies, as I've found that the results vary so much that they are useless.  If you like "weekend cooking" you need to spend some time searching through Epicurious.com.
