    She probably has no clue it is a PC recipe. Without comparing it word for word, she may have modified it.
    Truthfully, I didn't think you can "copyright" recipes anyway. Yes, give credit where credit is due, but with the internet, things float around so much, know one knows where things started.

    Imitation is a form of flattery, yes? :)
    If you saw it on Pinterest, just post a comment that says.... "Oh yes, I love this PAMPERED CHEF RECIPE!". haha. :)

    I sent her an email yesterday letting her know it was a PC recipe, she said she had it for 20 years and didn't know where it came from, but she changed the author on her post to PC. I thanked her for correcting it.

    I guess it just really annoyed me with everything the blogging community was saying about PC consultants using pics/recipes that weren't ours and how we should not post anything (known or unknown) without proper permissions and here was a blogger posting something she didn't create and take credit for it.

    I am glad she corrected it though because now with the many pinterest people that see it will know where it came from.
