Interested in writing an extensive hub on a certain type of dishes. My question is when using recipes I find on the internet, are recipes cited?
Recipes are under a somewhat partial copyright. You can reproduce the ingredients and measurements, but not the actual preparation and cooking methods.
As with any material on the Internet, you cannot simply take something like a recipe, article, etc., reproduce it in its entirety and consider it fine as long as you give attribution. You need to have express permission from the owner of the recipe (or article or whatever). You can cite small snippets as long as you use quotes and give attribution.
If you do not have a recipe of your own, your best bet is to describe the recipe and then link to the original.
Thank you. I was not sure of the particulars on recipes. I appreciate your help with giving me clarity on writing hubs with recipes. I see I would simply write for example; for complete details please go to (then put the link).
I have wondered about that because there are a lot of recipes on HP.. I saw one of my cookbooks tonight and thought of incorporating recipes into articles about specific subjects, not so much cooking related topics but maybe a cozy recipe included in a hub about winter activities.. etc.

It seems to be a regular sentiment in the forum threads. Are you waiting to see what will happen?

I didn't. I stepped away for about nine months for stupid reasons, which caused me to lose a lot of productivity time.I look at people who have been here for short periods of time who have written more hubs than...

Just an idea... but I think it would be cool to have a standardized way to list works cited. Perhaps a "works cited" capsule or something that could go above the comments or somewhere... similar to the...
