This person has no recipes just negative post on people posting recipes, but thinks it's a justified comment to put on other chef's pages! Please take a look for yourself! Tim

    Well, at least they did not assign one star to it, which would have made it worse. Most people try to reference the source of the recipe, but in many instances it's not known - maybe your mom gave you the recipe, or a friend, or you found it on another site. I've seen recipes published in cookbooks that were taken without acknowledgment from another cookbook - saw one just this week in a book I picked up from the library. The comments aren't nasty, just factual (arguably so, anyway), although I am amazed that this person has enough time in their life to do all of this. And the last one was almost two years ago, so perhaps they are bored.

    Equally annoying are the political correctness reviews - this is not a German recipe, it's Austrian or whatever - get a life, you really think recipes pay attention to borders? Basic food stuffs are the same, especially if you think of farm communities, and many cultures can come up with the same or similar dishes..... Someone criticized my recipe for grits as being something no Southerner would make - well, there is a reason the South lost the war icon_lol.gif I made no such claim, it's my recipe and I like it that way.

    So while annoying, it's at least not harmful - no single star to downgrade rating for reasons that have nothing to do with the recipe itself.

    Actually, I think these reviews SHOULD be there. Listing the source prevents the original recipe writer from being able to claim that the poster stole it (as has happened from time to time). There's nothing negative about the comments, nor are they misleading. As duonyte points out, many people don't remember where they got a particular recipe. (I also get a little miffed about that "this isn't authentic" nonsense, particularly when it turns up on a recipe whose description starts with the very same words! icon_lol.gif )

    I actually had a review on one of my recipes for a coffee cake say the recipe name was either incorrect or an ingredient was missing because there was no coffee in it lol! Well there is no tea in an English Tea cake either icon_smile.gif

    I disagree but thats my opinion! In the recipe that is shown above, it was received from a Employee not Todd Wilbur's copy cat book,there for the information posted is incorrect and also the statement made.I am in agreement with Steve!

    I think the vast majority of people see these types of reviews for what they are and ignore them. They say far more about the people posting them then about the recipes.

    There's a recipe here whose description begins something like, "I couldn't believe none of the tartar sauce recipes here have cream of tartar in them. . ."

    I don't think this is anything to worry about.

    Incidentally, does anyone know the origin of this recipe? I know I got it from a cookbook, but I wrote it down by hand and somehow misplaced the source.

    Although that may be true, you don't know where that employee got it. These are not negative reviews. He is just citing the source. We encourage our members to give credit where credit is do. What recipe in particular is this in reference to and we will be happy to look into and clarify if it is a copy and the correct source?
