The Food Network has just made what has to be the greatest event in the history of the relationship between food and the Internet. The beta site is up today, and so far it looks fantastic. To get in you'll have to register for the beta. Don't worry, everyone gets in, you just need to register. It's even free, so being a poor college student isn't an excuse.'s user interface is fantastic. You have a recipe box, in which you can save your favorite recipes for easy access. You can also submit your own recipes if you want, and finally get some credit for your culinary inventions. You're also free to search their massive database of recipes to your heart's content.

Whatever it is you're hungry for, chances are there's a recipe on for it. When this catches on (and it will, the Food Network has pull with all of the Internet-connected old ladies of the world) their recipe database will just get larger and larger.
