How many adaptations does it take...

Until you can claim that recipe as "yours."

One or two?
Enough adaptations until you can barely find the similarities between the adapted recipe and the original?
Or will it never be "yours"?

its not up to you, not matter how many adaptations

once people start asking you to make "your" burgers/pizza/dip/cake/peanut butter anchovie sandwiches/etc., or start saying things like "oh, i hope kitty brings her pudding/bruschetta/pulled pork/pickle cereal bars/etc" then it's yours....

keep in mind, you may meet some new people who make something the exact same way as you - then you need to re-establish yourself

Hmm, I never thought about it that way. Well, then I have quite a few recipes that are "mine."

I think if you've made just one subsitution, but that one thing really makes a difference, and you can easily tell by taste that you've done something different - then it's yours!
