I welcome any comments, suggestions and food related questions you may have… you can send me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or write a comment here or in any other post.
Where do you find inspiration?
I am easily inspired when it comes to food. Often times the content of my refrigerator will be the main inspiration for our weekday dinners. Other times it can be beautiful fresh produce, food magazines or cookbooks. I have a pretty decent collection by now and I do use my cookbooks. However, I rarely follow a recipe 100% (except when trying out new pastry recipes, since baking is really more a matter of chemistry). I like to tweak other people’s dishes. But most of all, I like to compose my own meals and create healthy treats.
When is a recipe your own?
Everybody wins when good recipes are shared. Proper food writing etiquette is giving credit to whoever came up with the idea first. It is a grey zone, but technically a recipe is your own if you come up with it by yourself or if you change more than 3 ingredients in an already existing recipe and write the cooking procedures in your own words. Whenever my inspiration comes from a known source, I will give credit where credit is due by referring to that source directly. If there is no source referral, the source is me. If you like one of my recipes, please be kind and give me the credit by including a link to my blog. That would be very much appreciated and is the right thing to do. To read more on the matter check out what food blogger David Lebovitz has written on the subject.
Can I use the photos on your blog?
No, unfortunately you cannot. All the photos are my work and they are copyrighted. You cannot use them without my permission and you cannot republish any photographs unless you have my written approval.
