Have you tried looking at Pinterest? There are HEAPS of recipes on there that are healthy & a variety of different recipes for different diets. You could cookbooks on there too I'm sure

The Skinnytaste Cookbook: Light on Calories, Big on Flavor

I tend to come up with my own recipes though, but I use a website with a food database so I have an idea of how many calories are in such and such.

I was gonna suggest Pinterest too- LOVE getting recipes off there. But, I also go to this site a lot (for clean eating):

There is a recipe index and I can find almost anything I search for. Plus, with clean eating, there are recipes for so much- it's just all natural and healthier foods. There are desserts too- but with clean sugar, not processed. Personally I need to make the chocolate bar again... YUM! Good kids snacks ideas too!

I'm a great baker- but not a cook... I always need a recipe!
