    No, unless you get permission first. I'm betting most of them would say yes, if your site is half-way decent.

      You don't have to ask permission. Permission is granted as long as you follow the
      creator's rule.

      Nobody is really going to do much if you don't give credit for recipes.

      There's not much you they can do. Every restaurant in the world copies
      recipes.

      Now, what in the world can you do with a single ingredient?

        You're right: but I take following the creator's rules is asking and receiving permission all in one. And I keep forgetting that people who come upon such creative restrictions don't bother to read the restrictions.

        You're right: most people can't do anything about it. But, every now and again, someone can do a lot. Why risk it when not risking can involve as little as giving the creator a nofollow link?

        What can you do with 1 recipe? That depends on the recipe, I guess. If you used hashish made from organically grown poppy, you'd probably make it big with the all natural, vegetarian, organic crowd, don't you think? (Assuming, of course, you are a good chef that can also present dishes well.)

      Strictly speaking that depends on the license. Not all CC requires attribution, for example. But I'd bet that generally speaking this is the case.

      Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.
      Who told me this? An ex Google web spam engineer.

      What's your excuse?

    I know you think it's going to be easy money but Adsense doesn't pay much for recipe related ads because the folks spending money on recipe related ads aren't paying much money to begin with.

    The recipe niche is also very competitive from an SEO POV. Been there, done that...

    IMO, the recipe niche only makes sense If you're selling your own cookbook/product where you set your own price for the product & keep 100% of the profit.

    +1 what yukon said.

    I talked with a girl that made $10k a month from selling an eBook with recipes using a single ingredient. She ranked for the keywords surrounding that ingredient.

    The ingredient helped a lot of people with a specific medical issue, so they were more apt to purchase, too.

    Sorry for being vague but I checked and it's still ranking -- I don't want to out her.

      No one here is going to pay you back for any legal expenses nor are they going to help you get your Adsense account back or anything else. You need to look at the license, understand the limitations, and make your own decision.
