I love sharing recipes. And I’ve always thought it was tacky not to share a recipe. When restaurants put out books of their recipes, one can have no good reason not to share. A good homemaker will always be considered a good homemaker, whether or not other people cook the same dishes. Besides, it’s the ultimate compliment to be asked for your recipe!
And just think — all ye people who don’t share — where did YOUR recipes come from? Betcha you didn’t invent every single one of them. Someone had to be kind enough to share.
And one more note — and maybe the best part of the whole sharing thing — sharing recipes allows you to benefit from the creativity of others. They just might come up with a little change that will transform your recipe from something good to something great. And if I share a recipe with someone and they come up with an improvement, I surely would like to be the first to know about it!
