Favorite recipe websites?

I'm annoyed with recipe websites these days!  Especially on tablets.  Why must you give me a thumbnail picture and cut off title/description?  Why do I need to scroll, scroll, scroll to find the pertinent information?  Why must there be hundreds of <any dish> hits?  And then when I try to sort by ratings, I get something that's been reviewed by 2 people, related to the person who submitted it.  Or I get 30 video results.

The last time I tried allrecipes, they absolutely refused to consider my "exclude ingredients" list and kept giving me recipes that included canned soup.  I wound up winging it because it was no help to me at all.

I've been cooking a lot from Damn Delicious lately.  Simply Recipes is a long-time favorite.  Torey Avey has some interesting recipes.

Martha Stewart, Epicurious, The Splendid Table, Eating Well are also reliable when I want a recipe to work and don't want to scroll through a billion photos of butter melting and paragraphs of inane chitchat to get to it.

Budget Bytes, Simply Recipes, and Damn Delicious are the ones I use the most.

It’s not a website, but we have the Weber Greatest Hits grilling cookbook and use that one a lot during the summer. I can’t stand a lot of summer dishes (like potato, bean, or pasta salads), but there’s a grilled new potato salad recipe in there that is delicious.

The Kitchn has been my long time go-to for new recipes: https://www.thekitchn.com/

Someone posted a recipe from We Call Him Yes! Chef here and the recipes I've tried so far from here have been keepers. https://callhimyeschef.com/

I have found some great recipes in David Lebovitz's blog, but I like it as much for the reading about his culinary adventures. https://www.davidlebovitz.com/page/2/

Budget Bytes is my go-to, that I use MANY recipes from. 

I also use a variety of other sites (though none as much as Budget Bytes). The Lemon Bowl had great, flavorful ethnic recipes. Her Lebanese Chicken Tawook is yummy!

I use Genius Kitchen sometimes. 

Can't wait to check out Lemon Bowl!

Had to laugh at BarbecueMom raving over the grilled new potato salad!! But it looks amazing, I'll have to try it!!
