Answer:
SPAM was the starred out word, which all of you got.
But full points to only those who mentioned GMAIL. If you go to your spam folder in GMAIL, you will start seeing SPAM recipes in the web-clips instead of the usual links and ads.

Nice one!

    Starred word is Spam (also known as canned meat)…
    special because they are annoying spam recipes’ advertisements which pop up on the gmail toolbar.

    SPAM.
    all recipes in the gmail web clips while you are checking spam.

    and no, no updated blogs… too much work.

    The word missing is SPAM.

    These are actual legitimate recipes which use the canned meat SPAM. I don’t know if there’s a further connection.

    The common term is SPAM, not to be mistaken for spam. SPAM luncheon meat is a canned precooked meat product, the original meaning being “Shoulder of Pork And haM”.

    The repetitious nature of the Monty Python sketch, in which the customer becomes more and more exasperated by the appearances of “Spam” in every menu item, gave rise to the term Spam as the common term for unsolicited bulk electronic messages

    Spam

    To help promote the release of “The Book of SPAM”, the SPAMFAN planned to eat SPAM for a consecutive 30 days — July 30th to August 28th,2007 and hence the title.

    By some strange coincidence, I saw the gmail.com spam folder, and it gives a list of Spam Recipes on top (where in a normal folder, it gives links etc.). Heh.

    Spam.
    All these food items featured in Monty Python’s Flying Circus- a specific sketch from which the term originates.
