Would you ask Stephen King to give you his book for free? Or Picasso to give you a painting? Or any other talented person to give away for free something they have put time and work into? Probably not. Though I’m sure they have been asked often. Because some people just don’t have any sense of value of an artists work.
Well, for the record, my recipes are off limits. Yes, I will print an extra copy of recipes I find online for select friends who do not use the internet often. But my personal recipes? The ones I have tweeked and experimented with? The ones that are uniquely mine? The answer is “No”. I’m going to practice saying these words: “This is a personal recipe that I don’t share. You can probably find something similar online. Just Google it.”
