Something a little special at RecipeLu is our Theme Weeks ! Each week we have 2 different categories that are featured.

Recipes posted for Theme Week are usually marked TW in the subject line of the post.

Here is the Theme Week Calendar so far.. so go grab your best TW recipes and send them on in.

Remember you can submit any recipe at any time.. no restrictions, TW related or not ! It's just a fun way to share specific topics that people have requested.

If you have any ideas for future Theme Weeks, please send your request to: List Mom Lu will add your request to the list...and you'll get some GREAT recipes.

To Post to the list, send messages to:

You can manage your account, set yourself to digest, go nomail etc by joining egroups.

If you need to reach me directly for administrative things, Unsubscribing to the list, or changing to digest or out of digest please don't post to the whole list.. I can be reached directly at: or talk to Diane at

Other Stuff
It would be great if we could make sure that we don't include the entire previous message when using the reply to button (just makes lots of duplicates). It also helps to change the subject line if applicable.

A couple of quick short forms that can be used in the subject line:

REPOST - indicating that the recipe was posted here recently

ISO or RQ: In search of/Request would mean we all new immediately that you were looking for a particular recipe.

REC or COLLECTION(3) - Would indicate that a recipe or collection of recipes was included. the ( ) changing depending on how many were included.

REC REV: Recipe Review ! We love these and titling them this way will ensure that everyone reads what you have to say =)

Comments, other suggestions, go ahead and post em to the list, but why not include a recipe, food fact, tip, trick, or joke?

TAG Rules 1. When you tag someone please send them a personal mail as well as post to the list.

2. Ask for a recipe or recipes that you have been looking for or a recipe with some ingredient you would like to use. Make it challanging not impossible!!
