Before you proceed

Although I provide content for readers at no charge, the goal of running a blog is to direct readers to my site for my recipes, not for them to be able to get my content from other sources. Although advertising is not the bread and butter of my efforts, any earnings from it helps to defray the several hundred dollars a year it takes to keep this site up for readers to use free of charge.

Please be respectful concerning that effort and the many hours of work that go into this blog. Don’t become the reason we can’t have nice things and ruin it for everyone – don’t steal or misdirect my — or any blogger’s — traffic!

The nitty gritty (and this is important!)

  • Permission is granted on a non-exclusive basis to SHARE LINKS ONLY with accompanying photo(s) TOGETHER on ANY SOCIAL MEDIA (no cutting/pasting/posting of full recipes or any other content.)
  • For OTHER WEBSITES, you may cut and paste recipe INGREDIENTS ONLY and must include a link back to the recipe on this site for directions/instructions on completing the recipe.
  • Under no circumstances may you cut and paste, copy, or use accompanying text/content within the post from my stories or any other content that is not part of the recipe ingredients.
