How to Submit

I know this looks like a lot to read. 

In a nutshell it means send a pretty photo, a nice recipe,
and give credit if you got it from another source.

Submission Guidelines - PHOTOS ONLY

  1. My preference is for photos taken with food in juxtaposition with objects, people, places, etc. as this is a food blog but I'll also accept other types of photos if they're artistic, edgy, and/or LGBT centered.
  2. If you have a blog and would like for me to link it to the photo, be sure the link works. 
  3. Please make sure photo is sharp and focused. If there is glare from a flash, or it is over or underexposed I won't be able to use it.
  4. Write a short but interesting description of the photo.
  5. Please send only photos that belong to YOU or that you have permission to post.  
  6. Send photos to:  I'll try to let you know as soon as possible if I will post your photo.  I have a full-time job and do this blog for fun so please be patient.

Submission Guidelines  - RECIPE & PHOTO  

  1. The photo you submit (with your blog post/recipe) must depict a finished photo of the recipe you cooked or baked. Please also include a photo of yourself.  If you want to remain anonymous, send a pic of your avatar, pet, etc.  Just pick a photo of something that best represents you.
  2. Please make sure the recipe is easy to understand and follow.
  3. Please send recipes/photos to:  I'll try to let you know as soon as possible if I will post your recipe. I have a full-time job and do this blog for fun so please be patient.


If your recipe submission is from another source other than yourself, please read below:

  • If you're modifying someone else's recipe, it should be called "adapted from."*
  • If you change a recipe substantially, you may be able to call it your own. But if it's somewhat similar to a publisher recipe, you should say it's "inspired by", which means that you used else's recipe for inspiration, but changed it substantially.*
  •  If you change three ingredients, you can in most instances call the recipe yours.*
  • If you're adapting a recipe from a website, link to that site's original recipe page URL.*
  • If you're adapting a recipe from a cookbook, link to that cookbook on Amazon, the publishers website, and/or the author's website. You can adapt a previously published recipe and republish it, as long as you give attribution. But it should not be a word-for-word republication without permission. When it doubt, ask, then get it in writing.*

When in doubt, always give attribution. If you're not sure if those Chocolate-Chicken Pancakes were actually inspired by that recipe you saw in Gourmet magazine a while back, be a sport and give Gourmet a nod. You're never wrong to give attribution, and to me, finding inspiration from someone else invariably makes excellent headnote material.*
