Recipe mailing lists

Here's a few that I know of! Of these, the MC and MM lists are probably about the busiest, tons of recipes each day. Not many recipes in BBQ, lots of good talk about how, etc, to smoke, grill, etc, types of equipment. Chile-Heads (my favorite!) has some recipes, read good archive of hot recipes, lots of talk about different kinds of hot peppers & other food, growing tips, etc. Foodwine is very laid back, good recipes. EAT-L has good recipes, just don't stray from the list rules. Jewish food, obviously, is for the discussion of Jewish food, lots of good recipes! FATFREE is very low-fat AND strict vegetarian (i.e. don't post m*at recipes!).

If any of these don't work, mail me & I'll find out what's changed and exactly how to subscribe.
