How do you organize recipes you find online?

I wanted a place to keep my recipes online, so I could access them at home or at work. Having entered a slew of them into a recipe box on epicurious just to run up against the limitation of not being able to search the box, I just tried, on this suggestion. It does have the ability to search and pobo, you can create your private recipe box without being a supporting member.

Brazilian food? (not churrascaria)

Ate at Casa last night. The staff was nice to us. We liked our shrimp cake appetizer and the little dish of hot stuff, but both of our entrees were boring and the room got super hot and stuffy. I wouldn't bother to go back.

Best Lobster Roll in Manhatten

I like the Mermaid Inn very much, but I was disappointed in the lobster roll there when I had it last year.

corned beef and cabbage

Yes, I do the Silver Palate recipe, not just for the sauce, but for the whole dinner. Classic, but the veggies are a little fresher than the usual.

Getting cold feet about moving to Jackson Heights....

When we moved to JH a year ago, we were without a kitchen for a few months, so we had a lot of delivery. We had a short list of dinner options, so The Ranger at Legends was in heavy rotation. We still order from there occasionally, and I can say that they're really inconsistent. One time, succulent, the next, just tolerable. I'm not wild about the sauce on the pulled pork sandwich, but the pork shoulder sandwich (a different texture and sauce on the side) can be wonderful.
