Friday Finds: St. Patrick’s Day Cookies, Blog Recipe Etiquette, Google Recipe Search

Happy Friday! We’re supposed to get into the low 40’s next week, so that’s exciting — especially after snow earlier this week. Hope you all had a wonderful week.

OK, on to the finds…there’s clearly a rainbow/St. Patrick’s day theme!

  • Mini-Eco’s sewn paper garland looks like a great project – simple and would certainly brighten any room.
  • Something that I’ve struggled with on this blog is how to handle reprinting of recipes. I don’t really have the time or inclination to make up brand new recipes. After all, there are so many great recipes already out there. But I don’t feel entirely comfortable reposting an entire recipe that someone else developed. This is quite the murky issue. Sound Eats and Healthly Living Blogs offer their take on the issue. (I remain not 100% comfortable with reprinting entire recipes even if I offer a source.) If you are at all interested in this issue, these are great links to read.

Wishing you and yours a lovely weekend. I’ll be running a 10k and baking lots of sweet treats. Not sure those two activities reinforce each other!

Thanks for reading!

      Thanks, Carol! You are so sweet to think of me. It was a great day! Did some baking which I’ll be sharing on the blog soon — though some of it was dare I say …. too sweet?! Can you imagine 🙂

    If it’s a printed recipe (book, newspaper, magazine), I think following the same rules one follows when writing an academic paper is perfectly acceptable. Cite your source. If the recipe comes from another blogger, perhaps ask permission and link to their site. I don’t know of many bloggers who aren’t interested in additional positive traffic to their blogs.
