Or Read It Now On Your...

What an honor to have one of "MY" (and I say this loosely), recipes in your cookbook, Laurie. I'm so glad you enjoyed them enough to post. My family usually asks for them when we make spaghetti or lasagna.

As for the negative comment, I will refrain from joining the chorus. Obviously, this lady didn't read the fine print and I'd venture to guess that MOST people who post a recipe here don't realize that it becomes "public domain". We're only human and her reaction is to be expected when they haven't read the fine print here. There is nothing private about the internet! This is why I like to post a small story about my recipes, so that if others do enjoy them.. they will know that it came from the heart and home of someone who loves to bake.

Truly, I feel so blessed to be able to share some of my favorite recipes. Enjoy!

No Rebecca I closed my website down, due to illness. But, I do post pictures of my creations on my FB which is Penny Hall, just friend me, and you can check out my pics, and this week I will be posting 30+ Angels, and I don't know how many faeries yet. I am able to just let insults and bad Karma from others just roll off my back. I have had 57 years to practice that. I just accept people for who they are, and let them be. But, when I see someone else being picked on, even if I don't know them, I will say something.

Yes, Rebecca, I SO agree with you. It is so easy to slip by the wayside when you are in the midst of turmoil of any kind. Negativity casts a grim shadow over what we should be focusing on in our lives. When that happens, we find ourselves praying less than we used to, and reacting more to our environment until we are caught up in the very things we don't want to be caught up in! Well, I choose to be happy, and that requires what you said, "FOCUS"!

Penny, would love to see some of your creations - do you have a website?

And Bonnie, what you said! :-) That is so true, life is too short to pay attention to the negatives. And its all about balance, don't you think? I am so easy to get focused on one thing in my life or one happening, hobby, etc., and forget to enjoy all the other blessings!

I hear you Penny, you are so talented and so good to share, too, as far as "unsavory experiences"...I make it a point to avoid the discord and drama of JAP as much as possible. I use the Unsubscribe button to all negative posts. Doesn't mean you have to be a doormat to the bullies, but life is way too short to pay homage to bad apples! Fill your life with positive people and positive thoughts. Who has time for anything else? Not me! I love God, my family, my friends, and my TNT group and love being on JAP for the recipes, but JAP doesn't define me as a person. There is a whole world out there! Besides, when you are on JAP you have no time to be cooking anything! :D

Amen Bonnie and Rebecca. The same thing happens with the Angels and Faery's I create. You cannot patent them, and I feel honored that I have been "copied" on the designs I have created. It just boost my creativity to the next level. Even the craft stores Michaels and Joanns has "copycatted" my designs on the Angels they set out each Christmas season. I have only had unsavory experiences with four people on JAP, and countless wonderful experiences with so many other Great JAP members. There are always "bad apples" to find and discard.

Lori, thank you for choosing my "Meme's Cinnamon Rolls" recipe for your cookbook. If you get a chance to make them, please let me know how they turned out for you!

As for using our recipes in the cookbooks, when I first started posting some of my family recipes to different websites, I did feel "territorial". But after awhile, I came to realize that no matter how special you think your recipe is, if you search the www you will find another recipe just like it (or very close). The old saying, "there is nothing new under the sun" applies to recipes, too!!

Thank you so much Lori for including my recipe in your cookbook!

Well said Bonnie! I feel the same way! It is a great trade-off!

Lori, thanks for including my recipe in your cookbook!

This is why it is so important for us as members to read the fine print. I wish more people would take the time to do it, too. Under FAQ for the club it says: By posting a recipe on this site, you have granted justapinch permission to edit the recipe and to publish the recipe and the content on this website for others to use, copy, edit, or download free of charge.... So they can sell your recipe. But look at what we get in return. We have a place to share our recipes, and a social place to gather, and a great database of wonderful recipes. That is a great tradeoff. They have to pay the bills somehow. I don't mind them using my recipes in cookbooks. If I did, I wouldn't be sharing the recipes.

Lori, you did a wonderful job on your cookbook! Thank you so much for including my Key Lime Bark in your cookbook. I really appreciate it.
Penny Hall - Oct 28, 2011
Pretty cookbook Lori, and thanks for using my crepes recipe. Don't take offense of some on JAP that do not understand that this is a "sharing" site, and are becoming "territorial" of their recipes that they have shared here. These books are nearly $30.00 each to purchase with shipping, so I don't see where a "profit" would occur. Making a cookbook is a creative endeavor, and it is an honor to have a recipe you have posted here to be included in a JAP members creation.

You really did a good job on it. Is that you in the picture in front of your cookbook? I love it.

If my recipe was used, without my permission, to be put into a book to make a profit... then shouldn't I at least be entitled to a free copy of the book?
