The JLS Lister Cookbook

Favorite recipes from members of the James Lee Stanley mailing list

Welcome, folks! This "cookbook" sprang out of a discussion on the James Lee Stanley mailing list in December 2003. We were sending around one of our periodic questionaires. Several questions referred to food preferences and our favorite holiday foods… which (of course) got us to thinking. (Always a dangerous thing where the JLS list is concerned!)

Some of the dishes people mentioned sounded soooo good, we decided to collect the recipes and publish them here for everyone to share.
