I prepared all this food. The written content and photographs are mine unless otherwise specified. I try out a lot of recipes from other sources, but always give credit where it is due. Of course, sometimes pages disappear, and the links no longer work. If that happens, hopefully I have included enough information for you to find the original source.
This blog is meant to be a convivial space, a place where I can share my thoughts, recipes, and story with you. If you like what you see and want to share it with others, remember to attribute it properly. As a courtesy, please do ask for permission if you want to use my content. It will almost always be granted unless you are using it for commercial purposes.
Also, sometimes I tell you about things that I like. I haven't been paid to do this — but wouldn't that be nice? Picture it: a lifetime's supply of Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt . . .
