In terms of recipes, let me guide you to some of my favorite sources. First of all, I discovered only in the last 2 years or so the delight of READING a cookbook! I picked up one by the founder of Earthbound Organic Farm, "Food to Live By" and read it cover to cover. I enjoyed it so much I now pick it up on purpose just to see what inspiration I can pull.
Also, these are a few of my favorite food blogs:
#1 hands down: http://www.remedialeating.com/
I follow these and others in a reader online, and when I have an ingredient or need inspiration I just do a search in the reader and see what hits where!
Also, Pinterest. Oh dear. Here is my Recipes board: http://pinterest.com/pilatespaula/recipes/
Even if you don't have an account you can still see all the yummyness. Again, I do searches and see what hits. I do like food... and visual aids.
