Last year I was in trouble with the copyright/trademark people for the use of "Kentucky Derby Pie". Now I have someone, Maxine, telling me I should give proper credit to people who's recipes I use. I really make a sincere effort to do that. However, if I've changed a recipe the original person with the recipe might not want credit. I have been making an apple cake for 40 years that Paula Deen featured on one of her shows a few years ago. Her recipe came from her Aunt Peggy, mine from my mom. Point is, it's an old Southern recipe. Who knows where it originated. I have lots of recipes like that. Not every recipe in a cook book originated from that book.
Lets just enjoy reading our food blogs and getting new ideas and recipes and not worry about who's recipe it is. Recipes belong to everyone. Am I right?
Maxine, or anyone else, if you need to tell me something, leave it as a comment or e-mail. I'll be happy to answer anything you ask. But I do need a way to get back to you. Thanks for visiting the Back Porch.
