New Dinner Ideas??

I just recently started cooking/baking a lot more and I've discovered I really enjoy it! My only question is, how do you keep coming up with new things to make for dinner? I feel like, while trying to cook somewhat healthy, all I can think to do is alternate pasta, chicken, and fish.... I can't fall into a rut yet! How do you think of or come about new ideas without making the same thing over and over?

Sometimes if I have a hankering for something i'll consult the online cooking sites.  I like epicurious and foodnetwork.com..... I'll also check out eatingwell.com for new recipes and sometimes you find something that's awesome and sometimes it's something that totally falls short.


 


I think forums like this are also helpful.  I'll post recipes that are healthy that I enjoy and i often try out recipes that others post on here (this week I'm trying misshammy's taco soup recipe).

I LOVE LOVE LOVE allrecipes.com!!!


They have GREAT recipes in there and the best part is you can search by ingredient so you don't have to run to the store if you want to cook with what you have! Also, there are a lot of reviews where people alternate the recipes to make them even better. I seriously LOVE that website!!!!
