Extreme Web Surfs!
Saturday, March 13, 2004
Well, since I was mentioned by Maarten in the 'Dailyrecipes' group as a possible source for recipes from the Great Depression, I got started on a search. However, that's a rather difficult topic, and I'll need more time to delve into it. Meanwhile, I got really bummed out by ending up at all those sites about 'depression'...thanks, Maarten!
But, as usually happens, just getting started on any search leads me to some sites of interest, so I'll share a few food related links I found. If you are visiting from the recipe group, welcome, and I hope you find something to make your visit worthwhile!
Aunt Runner's Recipes - nice site, which also includes a 'lost recipe message board' wherein you can request help in locating the same..

To crave for happiness in this world is simply to be possessed by a spirit of revolt. What right have we to happiness?
