Can I ask you a question about one of your recipes?
Of course! Ask away! While you can feel free to visit the contact page and shoot me a note, it’s probably best for the community of readers if you leave a comment on the specific post. After all, if you have the question, chances are someone else does too!
Did you/Can you post a recipe for [fill in whatever you’re currently craving]?
You can double-check what recipes I’ve posted by clicking on Recipes in the Menu and searching the website there. If there’s something you’d like me to share my spin on, feel free to contact me and let me know what you’d like to see: firstname.lastname@example.org. I can’t promise I’ll work out a recipe for everything, but I can always get back to you with a recommendation!
Is the nutrition information? Or, I calculated it myself and got something different, why?
When I include nutritional information, it is as an estimate based on the ingredients I used. I calculate all my nutrition information using MyFitnessPal. There are other options out there for calculating nutrition, that may have a different catalog of ingredients or information. Or, maybe you used different brands than I did. All of which can effect the outcome of calorie calculation. I cannot claim that the nutrition information provided is 100% accurate, but I can assure you that it is my best, educated guess based on the tools available. I always encourage you to calculate nutrition based off of the ingredients you use if you have any concerns. And a side note for my Weight Watchers friends. You may want to calculate points using the Weight Watchers recipe builder, as their formula may or may not include all of the ingredients I do.
Your recipe didn’t work for me? Is it wrong?
If you think you’ve identified an error, please, let me know! Otherwise, if I wasn’t in the kitchen cooking alongside you, it’s kind of hard to tell what might have gone wrong. Things like ovens, grills, and smokers are all a little different and so are personal tastes. I came about a lot of my ideas by reworking things that weren’t exactly right when I tried someone else’s version. At the very least, I hope each recipe can provide some culinary inspiration.
Can I post one of your recipes on my site?
As long as you credit my site, sure! To avoid any copyright issues, you should also use your own photos of the recipe and your own words for the instructions.
Can I post one of your photos on my site?
If your intent is to promote my recipe and site, then you may post one photo from the recipe as long as you credit and link to the site. If you would like to use more photos or photos for any other reason, please contact me directly for permission: email@example.com.
Who designed the site? How did you do it?
I did – and it’s a lot of work, to be honest. The site is designed using WordPress and the FoodiePro theme from StudioPress. It’s hosted through Bluehost. I relied on a lot of advice from experienced bloggers and a lot of support from those in a similar place as me. And my super awesome logo was designed by Karrie Gawron: karriegawron.com | firstname.lastname@example.org
Who takes the photos for your site?
I do! And since I only have one corner in my house that gets any natural light, it can be a challenge. I use a Canon Rebel T5 and I mostly pretend I know what I’m doing. I learned a lot (and still do) from Two Loves Studio, dedicated to food photography. I’m hoping to invest in other tutorials/books and will be sure to share my resources here!
