Hi Rachelle, I don't do recipes simply because I am not a good cook. But there are lots of hubbers doing recipes, so I suppose recipes make money. Look at the traffic of hubbers who write recipes, and judge for yourself. You can go to their profile and check the accolade on traffic. For example,
crazyhorsesghost - this hubber writes on several different topics, but mostly on food and recipes. - 1 million views plus so far
Good luck and happy hubbing!
