A Recipe is What?

My husband cooks and bakes often and he enjoys it. Sometimes I stand behind him trying get all the information so that I can recreate the same item. Standing behind him and writing down all the ingredients does not make me the author of the recipe. It is his.

Many of you may remember the problems on sites that went belly up. Part of the problem was posting recipes as their own and people going after the site for plagiarism. How do I know? They had to pay me because one of my recipes appeared on their site without my permission.

So how can you share a recipe and still make an article? Let me help.

You can place a link to the recipe and put links here about the pan they may make it in or some brands of ingredients they might use. If you just reprint the recipe the original author can seek damages.

Here’s an easy recipe for easy  Stroganoff.

What do you think?

  1. As a rule, I start with a recipe that someone like my mother wrote. I then almost invariably change it, sometimes substantially, so the recipes I post are normally original. That doesn’t mean that someone else couldn’t come up with them, too, but that isn’t common. If I write one that is basically unchanged from how my mother made it, I mention it in the recipe, but there are no links. She never put anything on the internet and passed away in 2007, so her recipes only exist on recipe cards or in my memory. :))
