What is an RSS feed?
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a format for sharing web-based content through automatically updated links. Sites like
Allrecipes can provide public RSS feeds that include recipes, cooking related articles and food news. Subscribers to these feeds
use software to include this information on their own websites, or to read the information directly.
Allrecipes offers several “Daily Recipes” RSS feeds organized into topics. Each feed includes several recipe
items—these include brief descriptions and links to the full recipe.

What kind of content does Allrecipes syndicate via RSS?
Allrecipes provides two different link styles for each feed below. Clicking the first button (1) will subscribe you directly using
some news aggregators, if this doesn’t work for you try the second button. The second button (2) links directly to the RSS
