I have a question about one of your recipes, how can I get in touch with you?
When you leave a comment on a post, I should get your comment/question via email. And when I respond to your comment, you’ll also receive an email (I love WordPress plug-ins!). You can also try to catch me on Twitter. I try to answer every question within 24-48 hours but I do get hundreds of emails a week. If it has been longer than that, I didn’t see it.
I want to print a recipe, but I don’t want to print another story about you trying to get your husband to eat vegetables. What do I do?
Whaaaaaat? I kid, I kid. At the top of every post, there is a nifty little PrintFriendly icon. For the recipe only, click “No image” from the PrintFriendly screen, and then click any extraneous text that you don’t want to print (a single click gets rid of an entire paragraph). When you’re happy, click Print!
How do you decide which recipes to post?
We don’t blog every dish that we try. Life is too short to share just an average recipe. The benchmark for publishing a recipe is: Did we love it? Would we serve it to guests? Cooking is a way of showing our friends and family that we love them so if I ever serve you a rubbery, bland pork chop… maybe I’m trying to tell you something
Official giveaway rules can be found here. Entry methods for each giveaway are announced in the individual giveaway post. The goodies that we give away on our blog were purchased by us (not provided by a company) unless otherwise stated. They’re cooking & baking gadgets that we love and think that you will, too. Your visits have made this little ol’ blog successful beyond our wildest imagination. And then even beyond that. It’s our way of saying, “Thank you.”
My nutritional information came out way different than yours. What gives?
I use and recommend SparkRecipes for calculating nutritional information. You’re going to see some brand-specific variations but I try to note those when I think they will make a noticeable difference (ie, I always use Dreamfields Pasta and Fage 0% for fat-free Greek yogurt). If you’re looking for recipes where I’ve already done the math for you, you can check the Weight Watcher-Friendly tag.
