[Sca-cooks] Webbing of Documentation (was Cooking Help Please!!)

Since some of the cooks here are also lawyers, I have a question that deals 
with copyrights.  I have taken to webbing some of my cooking and sewing 
projects like others do.  In the case of the cooking, I tend to remove the 
translations of the recipes in deference to copyright.  But in my sewing projects, I 
have quoted bits and pieces of the costume historian's work, but I remove the 
pictures used from the book.  (The one exception was a class handout on clothing 
that I posted.)

Is it ever OK to use the recipes or pictures or commentary?  Or should that 
always be removed when the documentation gets posted on the web?  In writing 
the documentation, I figure it is acceptable (and required) to use all that as 
part of educating my audience and judges (if needed).

I read and re-read the laws and it still doesn't quite click for me.
