Tastespotting is a community-driven visual potluck with irrestitible photos. You can sign up and submit photos and recipes, or just browse the tempting site.

The photo here shows Creamy Scrambled Eggs and Asparagus on Toast, submitted by Sarah. She found the recipe and photo on the New York Times Health & Fitness page, so it's good for you too.

Nothing special about the photography. Sometimes a macro lens was obviously used, but that's child's play. I think it's the presentation of some of the dishes, along with the fact that it has a very cookbook-ey look to it.

Aaaand, now I'm hungry.

As one of the photogs that is (sometimes) accepted on Tastespotting (you can put my name in the search bar), they are not done professionally. There is, however, a standard to the photographs that will be accepted. It's a labor of love for many of the non-professional photographers who are accepted. Some of the photos are professional, but the majority are done by people who just love to cook.

I agree, Kalel. It doesn't look at all like a user submitted photo, but rather something out of a cookbook. That said, it is a great idea with a lot of great recipes.

Something odd about this; All the photos are not only professionally done, but they use so many of the same techniques that I suspect the same photographer. Even deep into the website, same photos. I'd expect much wider variety with community submissions.

HOWEVER, it's a wonderful idea nicely done, so that this website earned a rare honor -- a place in my Favorite tab.
