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 . . .

I am always puzzled when I see bloggers declaim against those who try out and post recipes from other sources. It just feels kind of snobbish to me. Most, if not all food people read recipes. Food people tend to … Continue reading
