Recipe Protection... - Page 4

post #46 of 52
Got so excited about the cabana boy I forgot what the OP had asked icon_redface.gif I tend to share almost all of my recipes with the exception of those I use in competitions. I would pass these on to ppl in other areas of the country knowing that I would not have to compete against them. Now there are ppl that I will share nothing with at all. No no no to my MIL. I have this pork chop recipe that has a whipping cream base. She wanted to make it for her BF so I gave it to her. Well the next Xmas my DH's family puts together a family cookbook and guess what...yea my recipe her name on it. I know its petty of me but crap I worked hard on that.

I know that sharing is a good thing, however, there is a lady who loves to bake and wants my recipe. Don't get me wrong, I was not the originator of the recipe but I don't want everyone knowing my "business". Is this wrong? What's your opinion?

Forgive me in advance if I am being selfish... icon_redface.gif

I'm so stupid that I give any recipe that people ask for. And Debi--I have used my same cc cookie recipe for 40 years so I won't be begging for yours. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif I'm too old to switch recipes now.

Girls.......maybe you could hypnotize her and get the recipe. icon_rolleyes.gif

Of course my favorite is when someone asks if there is any way I will share a cake recipe and my daughter and I look at each other and roll our eyes. I tell them to call Betty or the Doughboy and get it. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Bree was a hoot last night with the recipe....funniest part being that her husband is just as anal about those things as she is.

Hahahahaha! I was just going to write the same thing!! Bre is a mess. She meant she was going to get that woman's recipe by any means necessary! icon_biggrin.gif



Ha ha ha! At that point last night my husband turned to me and said "honey, this show is not that good" but I was laughing!! Love Bree! So, calm and collected in public even when she's mad. But in her house... she's a NRA card-carrying-crazy-pie-making-fake-baby-impregnated-Stepford Wife.

I love her!!!!

I don't share recipes because I'm not that good of a baker....yet icon_wink.gif So nobody wants em icon_cry.gif and....I really don't have anything special that ya'll don't have.

Debi-I'm opposite of you. People rave over my chocolate chip cookies, but it's the same one on the Nestle bag. I don't know why mine are better...they just are. My OATMEAL one however, is NOT leaving me for anything. I just won first place in the State Fair with them and they sent a form asking if I'd like to compete next year in the blue ribbon bakeoff. Um, NO, I have to submit my recipe!!! Not in this lifetime!!!

I LOVED the Deperate Housewives episode this week. I would be Bree.

If I sold items- I would not share those recipes. But for things like family recipes, church potlucks, reunions, etc.. I would gladly share whatever recipe I had! Why take something to the grave with you? I like to past on the information! icon_biggrin.gif

I'm the type that *usually* will share recipes...but then as is the case a person will make it "their" way, and it makes me think "why did I bother sharing it".

Prime example...I uploaded my recipe for RVC into the CC recipe forum, and then I read another post from a fellow cc'er who used my recipe and stated they used a cream cheese frosting...after reading that statement, I almost requested my recipe to be removed...b/c my personal motto is simply "If you don't want to follow my recipe...Don't use it!"

Seriously, I almost hit the ceiling...it made me mad tapedshut.gifthumbsdown.gif
