Overall it's simply beautiful, and so helpful. I would reduce the size of each block on the left margin on the recipes page, however, perhaps switching to dark grey on white for the name of each recipe, with a light border in dark grey on the bottom of each caption box, and a bit more white between them. That particular design configuration, given the prevalence of dark neutral backgrounds in your food shots, seems quite heavy and out of balance with the light and elegant touch you've achieved on most pages. Just a suggestion . . . . Otherwise, I love it!! ;o)
