How to find a good recipe on the internet

In general, I  appreciate the way the internet has democratized recipe-publishing.  But when two generations who were raised on packaged food  started watching reality food shows and found Pinterest, some weirdness was bound to ensue.  There are hundreds of thousands of recipes on the internet, and a lot of them get circulated more than they deserve, mostly by people who haven’t actually made them yet.  I’ve fallen prey to “BEST _______ EVER!” recipes that were not only not the best granola or chicken or whatever, but weren’t even good.  So, I’m pushing back, world wide web.  I’m writing a series on how to find good recipes on the internet.  A little meritocracy could be a very good thing for us all.  Stay tuned!
