Recently there was a blurb from a disgruntled food blogger about someone copying and pasting an entire recipe on their blog. Although the blogger gave credit and a link back this still annoyed the original owner of the content.
Quickly I reviewed my own recipes that have been published here and rarely do you see the recipe in its entirety. My method is to list the ingredients because I’m calculating and logging the calorie count. This is my great effort to put a healthier spin on it if I can. Some recipes are just comfort goodies and it’s as simple as that. Credit is always given and link backs are used.
However, this is not a food blog and I wanted to throw out the question to those that do this on a daily basis. I’m a Pinterest recipe hunter. The photo captures my eye and either I make it as is, alter the ingredients, or say forget it this is just a recipe that’s going to the hips!
What is the recipe etiquette among food bloggers? How can we use, share and modify recipes without upsetting the original owner? What are your thoughts? I would love to hear them.
