  2. If you used someone else’s recipe for inspiration, but changed it substantially and the product is somewhat similar to the published recipe, give credit to the original by saying, " This recipe by (me) was inspired by ____________. The original recipe can be found here." and give a link to the original recipe.
  3.  If you change the ingredients substantially or completely came up with the product on your own; and you write directions in your own words for how you prepared it, the recipe is your own and you should claim it.
