These days I mostly just use google. I tend to look at at least the first three results but sometimes at ten or more. Some I discard because they take too much time or use an ingredient or technique I don't want to use. Some make too many or too few servings. To make the final decision I compare preparation techniques and ingredients. For example I recently was looking for a recipe for zucchini bread. For a similar-sized result the amount of sugar used varied widely. As I am not a big fan of too sweet things (don't get me, wrong, I have a sweet tooth; but if all I can taste is sugar, thank you, but no), I picked the one with the lowest amount of sugar.
