Thank you Alex for a wonderful description of our rights. This does appear to be somewhat of a tightrope that we walk as food bloggers.
The results so far of our poll on this topic reveals that everyone seems to be in agreement that if you simply credit the author for the recipe than all is ok.
I believe we have a wonderful craft in baking and cooking. This wonderful art involves more loving people than those worried about their “secret recipe” getting out. In regards to this site I will credit the author and not give overly specific (verbatim) directions on how the author instructs us on how to bake – this is where I will paraphrase. (This is of course my own interpretation of this law and should not be used in place of your own opinion – can you tell whom I’ve been talking to :) )
Now back to baking!Today I will be trying to recreate something that I have been wanting for a while now. You will notice that with my 1-pound Oreo cookie recreations earlier that I was under the impression they were going to be a lot like oatmeal cookies. Although they were wonderful they were nothing like the oatmeal variety.
So, as I enter the kitchen, tester recipes in hand, I tip my newspaper made chef’s toke in everyone’s directions and bid you a week of good baking.
