Recipe Websites

"We may live without poetry, music and art;
We may live without conscience, and live without heart;
We may live without friends; we may live without books;
But civilized man cannot live without cooks.
He may live without books, --what is knowledge but grieving?
He may live without hope, --what is hope but deceiving?
He may live without love, --what is passion but pining?
But where is the man that can live without dining?"

-Lord Lytton

Thanks to all who commented on their favorite recipe websites. Here they are:

Feeding America: The Historic American Cookbook Project - this one is particularly interesting..."The Feeding America project has created an online collection of some of the most important and influential American cookbooks from the late 18th to early 20th century. The digital archive includes page images of 76 cookbooks from the MSU Library's collection as well as searchable full-text transcriptions."

I'm sure there are more out there that would be a benefit to us all - so if you have one, let me know and I'll add it to the list.

That Feeding America one sounds fascinating. I grew up 15 minutes from MSU but I've never seen this before. Thanks for the info!
