I made one of your recipes and it wasn’t good. Why?
There are actually a lot of reasons this can happen! I spend a lot of time writing/developing/testing recipes because I want them to turn out perfect every time. I take the time to write up a blog post to go along with a detailed recipe – so please make sure you read everything before you try a recipe. However, if you are still having trouble, or if you have questions or need help, please e-mail me! I’d love to help you make it perfect!
Can I make substitutions to your recipes?
Maybe. In most savory recipes you can swap out ingredients pretty easily, but obviously it’s not going to turn out exactly as mine has. However, I really encourage you to experiment in the kitchen. Cooking should not be taken too seriously! It should be fun and include ingredients you love. If there is a substitute that I know for sure works, I will always include it in my recipes. If you are unsure about something – leave a comment on that post, or e-mail me and I’ll be glad to give you some advice!
Now, when it comes to baking you can’t really swap out ingredients. That doesn’t mean you can’t experiment, but just know that you will probably have a few fails before successes! Again, if there is a substitution that I know works I will be sure to include it in the recipe!
I don’t have an issue with gluten; can I still make your recipes?
Yes! I want my blog to appeal to as many audiences as possible. I didn’t start this blog to be gluten-free, but it’s now something I have to adapt to since I can’t have gluten anymore. Whenever I make a specifically gluten-free recipe, I will always include instructions on how to swap ingredients if you don’t need it to be gluten-free.
For more information on my gluten-free journey/story, check out this post and this post.
Why did you start a food blog?
I truly love food, cooking, and sharing it with others! For more about this topic, check out my about page.
How much time do you spend on your blog?
A lot! Being a food blogger isn’t easy by any means. I write recipes, test them, tweak them, and start over. Then, there’s the time it takes to set up a photo shoot, edit the photos, type up a post, make sure everything is running smoothly on the site, answering comments, marketing through social media, and well you get the point. It’s a full time job and even when I’m not in the kitchen I’m doing something related to the blog – it’s my life and I love it!
Can I share your recipe/photo on my blog?
Yes, but only if you link back to my site!

I love questions! Please e-mail me or catch me on facebook, twitter, or instagram!
