    Is it unethical or illegal to repost recipes from cookbooks here on hubpages. Obviously, over...

    the years we share those recipes with our friends, but can I share a recipe that I like here, out of say williams sonoma, without repracussions?

    I would come up with your own recipes.  Most recipes can have your own ingredients and twists as that is how experimental chefs cook anyway.

    to copy someone elses recipe from a cook book is plagerism.   
    To take a recipe from a cook book and change some of the ingredients is OK.
    To take a Family recipe handed down from relative to relative is OK as long as you give recognition to the creator like "Aunt Janes Banana Fritters"

    I do a lot of cooking myself and when I find recipes somewhere else, I usually make my own alterations to the ingredients or preparation. When I post the recipe though, I try to give credit to the original author/cook by saying "Adapted from 'The Joy of Cooking' " or "Adapted from [blog title]."
