    If I'm looking online for recipes, it's usually because I'm in a bind and I need some ideas. So I usually type in the ingredients I have on hand and pray Google will spit back something good. One of my favorite places to search for new recipes is Pintrest. I can find a lot of really good copycat recipes.

    I usually look for recipes that are semi-homemade.  Easy recipes I can make with some store bought ingredients but enough ingredients that my meal will not have too many preservatives or additives.

    I good example is french toast.  I wouldn't make the bread but I would use store bought bread and make the rest from scratch. 

    I also like to look for twists on old classics.  New ingredients making burgers taste better or different ways to make fried chicken or meatloaf.

    I always have an eye out for cow milk free recipes, or ones that allow me to easily substitute cow's milk for almond or oat milk.

    I usually look when I have run out of ideas, only have certain ingredients in the cupboard. My favourite places are BBC food, or Channel 4 food (UK sites) or AllRecipes.

    Healthy and fresh food in general. I am very vegetarian now a days and I like to search for new ideas. Lots of veggies turn me on and I also search for desserts. Food photos must be great to catch my eye.

    I usually look for recipes that are uncommon, I like to try new things, so I would google something that I have eaten or heard about but have never tried cooking before. something like char siew pow.

    If I have ingredients but no firm idea of what I want to do with them, I start at Cooking Light. Actually, I almost always start with Cooking Light. If, though, I have a specific recipe in mind, I just Google search. I then look over a few and get an idea of how I want to make the dish. I still often check out Cooking Light in this situation.

    Thank you for all the responses to my question. I am an avid cook and I was curious as to what people are looking for so I will try to focus more on some of your suggestions especially the healthy eating as I also am very interested in eating and cooking healthier.
