Recipes as flavor combinations

cambridgesidefoodnerd | Feb 3, 2009 03:50 PM

I don't post much here, but love lurking around. I'm a huge fan of simple recipes-- not necessarily simple to make, but simple text. If I'm wading through a long list of recipes, it's a lot easier to read a list of flavor combinations than to read full recipes with numbers of cups/tbsps and minutes of cook time etc. For example:

Sear corn kernels in olive oil with minced jalapeƱos and chopped onions; toss with cilantro, black beans, chopped tomatoes, chopped bell pepper and lime.

Comes from http://www.nytimes.com/2007/07/18/din.... Elsewhere an author would say how much of each veggie, how much lime juice, etc.

My question is: does anyone know of other places to find lists of recipes like this? Where the recipes assume that you're not ignorant in the kitchen and can put things together in good ratios?
