Copyright and Fair Use Policy

We retain all the copyrights for the material on this blog. We work hard to create these articles – We will not put up with stealing or scraping our content or photos.  Everything on this site is copyrighted material, therefore Fair Use does not apply.


You may use one photo when sharing or curating one of our posts as long as it’s linked prominently back to our site, and we are given the proper attribution. We require that the photo you use must be the first photo on the post, the one that contains the title and our water mark.  Editing of the photo is only allowed if the edit DOES NOT remove the portion of the photo that contains our website address.  If you do not attribute our photos to, you will be in violation of this privacy policy.

Use of other photos in the post is allowable under certain situations.  But the photo must be attributed to by including a PROMINENT attribution that includes a link in both the photo and the attribution back to  You MUST receive permission to use any photo other than the title photo, you may request this permission by emailing us at  We will try to respond to all requests, but if you do not receive a response then you DO NOT have permission to proceed!!

Please also include a link to our homepage if possible or the url of the post you are sharing.  Note that any content shared by you on any medium MUST include a link back to  If you use any of our content or photos and do not include a live “clickable” link back to our site you are in violation of this policy!

Be advised that this policy extends to images we create for Pinterest. If you use or repin our image on Pinterest then remove the link to our website and replace it with your own, you are in violation of our privacy policy as well as Pinterest’s because you are stealing copyrighted images.

After I notify you that you have stolen my images, you have 24 hours to either remove my image from your board or replace your link with mine. If you do not do either of these, I will forward whatever information you have provided to WHOIS to my attorneys and invoice you for reprinting my copyrighted material. I will also file a complaint with Pinterest to have the image removed, as well as ask Pinterest to remove you as a user for repeat offenses.



You may not reprint any of our recipes at all or any of our articles in their entirety.

You may use 10% of my original content.  Most of my articles average between 800 & 1100 words, that means you don’t have much you can use on your site, between 80 to 110 words for most posts.  You MUST (repeat MUST) link back to my site PROMINENTLY. This does not mean a small author link at the beginning or end of the article, it must be obvious.

If you wish to republish my articles for any use, please contact me directly at and we can talk about it.

Summarizing my articles in your own words and then prominently linking back to my site for attribution is fine. In this case you may use one photo from the article and that photo MUST be the the first photo from the post, the one that includes the post title and my watermark!  I would also request that you add a link back to the post to the picture.

If you reprint my articles or recipes, or use any photos outside of the permission I grant above, you will receive an invoice for reprinting my materials at my normal rate, which I reserve the right to determine.

If I contact you regarding a copyright infringement, I expect a response within 24 hours. Failure to do so will result in a DMCA complaint and I will forward whatever information you have provided to WHOSIS to my attorney.

I take copyright infringement seriously.
