Do you have commercially-packaged dried herbs or spices still in their original containers? Manufacturers including Durkee, McCormick, and Spice Island have online resources that allow you to find out just how old your herbs and spices are.

Supercook allows you to enter ingredients and search for recipes that make use of them.
This isn't a new idea, but it is a very good implementation of it. In addition to entering ingredients, you can emphasize some of them over others. This is great when you are in the mood for something in particular or when you want to make sure you use something up before it goes bad.

Image by qmnonicI love reading cookbooks. My favorite part of a cookbook, though, is rarely a recipe. Usually it is the foreward, the appendix, or the aside: the place where the author gives some insight into their methodology and mindset.
What I like most about these things are the ideas they inspire.
