Where can I get good quality creative commons cooking recipes that I could incorporate into an iphone app?

I have an idea for an iPhone app but it will require a body of recipes. I think it would cost a ton of money to license them from one of the big recipe sites so looking for content that I might be able to use and provide attribution back to the creators.

Is it better than epicurious? Their recipes are from Gourmet and Bon Apetit. It's free. Not meant to discourage you. Good luck.

Why do they have to be licensed as creative commons? Recipes are generally not copyrightable. Check and you'll find the topic has been discussed here a number of times.

The ingredients of a recipe aren't copyrightable; the text, descriptions, images, etc., are. (link)

Nibbledish advertises itself as "over 2000 creative commons recipes", so maybe that's a good start?
