These were also the rules in force when I simply posted recipes on my LJ. I feel silly that it took me so long to codify them for this blog.
1. No recipe goes on this blog if I have not tried it. Usually, I also tweek it to fit my budgetary / taste needs.
2. If the recipe comes from a source, I name the source. If I've cooked something that was inspired by something I saw in a cookbook, but is not a direct recipe, I'll name the cookbook.
3. Some dishes are grounded in basic vegetarian cooking theory, those I tend not to attribute to any specific book. My three main vegetarian foodie inspirations are: Claire's Corner Copia Cookbook, Anna Thomas's The Vegetarian Epicure series, the New York Times's Dining In section, and various kosher cookbooks. (A chunk of my heritage is Central European, and milk-kosher food is as close as I can get to my family's comfort food.)
