Label Glossary

People who read blogs regularly probably notice things like tags on blog entries. If you haven't noticed them, I (along with many bloggers) use tags as a way to categorize and organize the various posts I have. This is a different way of organizing from my Recipe Index, as some tags cross types of recipes (e.g., the "summer" tag could apply to a dinner AND a dessert). Since I use tags, I figured it would be convenient to have a glossary explaining each of the tags I use. In addition, you can click on each of the tags and see only those recipes associated with the tag you clicked.
