    Yep! I have used it for the last 1.5 years. I found it right after I joined PC. You do have to be a little careful because the recipes vary sometimes. Also, don't let your customers get a hold of this site. We will never sell another cookbook.

    OH you are so true Laura I never thought about our customers getting ahold of it, that would'nt be good. But what a great site for any recipes, not just PC's.

    How can you tell if the recipes themselves are copyrighted?

    I grabbed the Celebrate cookbook and it doesn't say you can't copy or distribute the recipes, plus customers can go the the PC website and download them for free. And...look at how many of our recipes show up in Taste of Home magazines each month!

    I do agree with luvs2sellit - a lot of the recipes on Joyce's site have an ingredient missing, or different amount, so I don't rely on it.

    I don't think you have to worry about customers getting hold of the site - I think most people would still rather reference a cookbook. There's more information (tidbits), pictures, easily accessible, etc., and $14.75 is pretty cheap for our awesome cookbooks!

    missing ingredient

    You have to change three things about a copyrighted recipe to use it as yours. One of those can be as simple as the name of the recipe and then two ingredients. Wonder if this has to do with recipes being a little bit different.

    Honestly I changed most recipes I use to my liking even the PC ones.
