This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. My goal is to share my 20+ years of cooking experience and vegetarian recipes I have made in my own kitchen along the way.
You have my word that I will only promote products that I personal use or can recommend without hesitation.
Any cooking tips, utensils, or products I recommend on this website are based on my own independent viewpoints. After trying many products, I am providing unbiased recommendations for products that we have been using. These are solely my personal opinions and viewpoints. This site is not responsible for any issues which arise from purchase or use of the recommended products or websites.
I also provide vegan and gluten-free information and recommendations but do not claim to be an expert in those areas.

This blog accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. However, at the current time I do not have any ads on my site. The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network.

Nutritional Information Disclaimer
I am not a nutritionist or a dietary specialist. I manually calculate approximate nutritional information (at the request of followers) through a free service provided by this website: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp where I enter in ingredients and serving size. I am unable to verify every ingredient, it’s source, and it’s nutritional information in their database, and therefore I DO NOT guarantee 100% accuracy of the nutritional information provided above.
