Hi Guys, just a reminder, if you are reproducing a recipe here - from somewhere else on the internet or from a recipe book, you need to credit the author. - Otherwise you get into a grey area of plagiarism. Even if it is just copied from another website, you still need to credit the source. Sorry to be a Grinch.

Re: Copyrite
Not a grinch, Mrs. X. You are very correct and I have been remiss in allowing them without the proper attribution.

ETA: I liked what this food blogger had to say:

Re: Copyrite
What if you have a recipe but you changed it up some, does that count as copy right infringement?

I think you are best to say "based on".

However, if it really is completely different (Started off as an orange cake, and is now chocolate slice), that probably qualifies as a different recipe. :D
