Three ways to nourish your inner chef.

Eat Your Words
You could copy your beloved peach pie recipe for yet another friend—or you could take a minute and upload it to TasteBook. The design-your-own-cookbook site lets you mix your recipes and photos with favorites from across the Web, then save your collection online or print it as a hardcover version.
Explore Your Past
