Let’s Talk Common Sense
I’m not a doctor. I’m not a dietician. I’m a cook. I write recipes for a living and have no claim to specialized medical or nutritional training. I do not dispense medical advice, I do not have a degree in health, medicine or nutrition (how many different ways can I say that?). I only discuss my own experience and what worked for me or my family. If you need medical advice, find a local doctor or nutritionist to provide it for you.

We make a good faith effort to keep up-to-date on gluten-free products. However, product formulations change frequently. Always check product labels for the most recent ingredient information and call the company if you have any questions as to the gluten content of a product.

Let’s Talk Common Cents
Some of the links on this site are affiliate links. If you click them and then purchase from that company, I will receive a small commission. That commission is used to pay for this site. Hosting a blog with decent traffic and turning out recipes isn’t free. By using my affiliate links, it’s like you’re leaving us a tip. We greatly appreciate it as it encourages us to crank out more awesome recipes.
We only affiliate with companies and products we personally use and love. I will not endorse a product or company without having tried them. It isn’t ethical. I will not run a giveaway for or do a review of a product I haven’t used.
We don’t sell our list of names, e-mail or physical addresses for newsletters, clients, menu mailers or anything else. I hate spam and I’m not going to send any your way, either.
We do host giveaways on our blog from time to time. Again, I will not do a giveaway on a product I have not personally used. When I write my review of a product, I will be honest in my evaluation of the product. Sometimes a company sends me something in hopes I’d like it and endorse it and gives me an opportunity to give one away to a reader, too. Other times, I like a product I’ve personally purchased so much that I’d like to give one away to a reader, too. I’ll tell you which is which in the post. We do not host giveaways in exchange for payment.
If we host a product placement, we will tell you in plain English that it is a paid product placement, as per the FTC rules. If we don’t mention that it’s a paid product placement, I’m doing it because I bought the product myself, I like it, and I think you’ll like it, too.
If a photo appears uncredited on this site, it’s a photo I have personally taken. I have invested time and money into buying the right equipment to get decent shots of my food and making stock photos for use on my own website. Please ask permission before using my work, I’m a nice person and you don’t have to be afraid to ask. I don’t bite. Then please give me full credit when you do receive my permission to use the photo. Play nice. Just one small link back to my site makes me happy. I don’t ask for your right arm in exchange for you using my photo.
If the photo doesn’t belong to me, I will include an image credit so you can click through and find the photographer.
If you use my photo without my permission, I’ll be sending you a nice, big bill in the mail and filing a DOMA notice.
