Do you blog full-time?
Yes, blogging became my full-time job in 2016. What started as a casual hobby for nights and weekends has grown into a successful business that reaches over 1 million people each month.
I love being able to develop recipes for a living, and I enjoy the creative freedom that comes with managing my own business.
Why do you have ads on your site?
Running this website is my full-time job, and advertisements provide an income to support myself. My display advertising inventory is optimized and managed by my advertising network, AdThrive.
I prefer display advertising compared to other monetization methods — like sponsored content — because it lets me write unbiased and helpful content.
Do you work with brands?
Currently, I am accepting very few collaborations, including sponsored posts, work-for-hire photography, recipe development, influencer campaigns, affiliate programs, and other client-related work.
If you are interested in working together, you are welcome to send me an e-mail. In the past, I’ve worked on sponsored content with brands including Google, Albertsons, Bertolli, Omaha Steaks, Hamilton Beach, Bob’s Red Mill, and T-fal.
Can I send you an advertising proposal?
No, I work exclusively with my ad network, AdThrive.
Do you offer guest posting on your site?
No, I don’t have guest posts or any content from other contributors on my website.
How do I unsubscribe from your email newsletter?
At the bottom of each e-mail newsletter, there is an Unsubscribe link. Click on that link to unsubscribe from my e-mails. To re-subscribe, navigate to my Subscribe page.
Who is Mr. Savory Tooth and what does he do?
Mr. Savory Tooth is my husband. He proofreads all of my posts, performs technical work in the backend like CSS and PHP, and cleans all of the dishes. Sometimes he even experiments with recipes in the kitchen, but usually only foods involving chocolate or peanut butter. He’s also an automation guru who hates doing the same thing twice, and likes doing fancy things in spreadsheets.
Are you on social media?
I’m active on Pinterest and I don’t spend much time on other social platforms.
Who takes the photos of the food on your blog?
I do. I wear many hats as a food blogger — recipe developer, chef, photographer, videographer, writer, social media marketer, software developer — but one of my favorite parts is the photography. I love the artistic and creative side of shooting and editing photos.
I shoot exclusively using artificial lights. There’s simply no substitute for the kind of reliable and constant lighting that you can get with artificial lights; daylight is simply too fickle and prone to rapid changes due to clouds and weather.
What kind of camera do you use?
Can I share your images?
If you have your own website, you may share 1 image from my recipe post with credit and a link back to the original recipe post. Please do not share more than 1 image from a post. You may not share the image collage linked to my Pinterest pin button at the top of each recipe.
If you’re creating a roundup-type article and want to reference multiple posts on my site, you may share 1 image from each individual post.
The only images I can provide are the ones on the site. I do not provide photos with higher resolution than what you see on the site.
Can I re-publish your recipes?
I do not allow re-publishing of full recipes in any form. This covers both online and print, including but not limited to websites, social media platforms, books, e-books, newsletters, product packaging, and magazines.
Can I ask you a question about a recipe?
Yes, questions regarding specific recipes should be asked in the comments section directly below each recipe post. Please do not send e-mails with recipe questions.
I try my best to answer as many questions as possible, and in some cases, other readers are able to offer help and share their experience with you.
To turn on email notifications so that you receive an email when somebody responds to your comment, click on the bell icon below the comment box to toggle notifications on/off.
Where can I find the number of servings for a recipe?
The number of servings is listed in each recipe above the Ingredients section. Note that the provided nutrition information is per serving.
How do you calculate net carbs?
Check out this guide on how to start a low carb diet, which includes information on how to calculate net carbs. Essentially, net carbs are equal to the total carbs minus non-digestible quantities like fiber and sugar alcohols.
A common question for people new to this diet is why they are calculating way more carbs for desserts than I do. That’s because they are including erythritol, which is a type of sugar alcohol, in their calculation for net carbs. Erythritol should be subtracted out since it’s not digestible by the body.
How can I save your recipe to Pinterest?
In every recipe post, there is a recipe box where the ingredients and instructions are located. At the top of the box, underneath the photo and title, there are 2 buttons: Print and Pin. By clicking on the Pin button, a window will pop up and you can select a board on Pinterest to save the recipe to. Make sure you are logged onto Pinterest.
How do you come up with your recipe ideas?
A lot of ways. I’m often inspired by meals at restaurants, seasonal ingredients at the market, family recipes, and random ideas that I come up with. I often merge flavors between different dishes to come up with new recipes.
I keep a list of all of my recipe ideas — currently hundreds on my list — and it grows faster than I have time to experiment and develop them into recipes. I don’t foresee ever running out of ideas.
Can I send you an idea for a recipe?
Yes, send me an e-mail with your recipe suggestion.
Whether it’s a vague idea, a favorite food that you’d like to see a low carb version for, or something more detailed like a family recipe that you’d like to share with me, I’d love to read your suggestions.
Do you offer keto meal plans?
I don’t offer weekly meal plans. If you’re looking for specific types of recipes to plan out your meals for the week, navigate to my homepage where you can browse by course and various other categories, which can help you find what you’re looking for.
Do you have any cookbooks?
I don’t have any cookbooks. I’ve been approached by publishing companies and literary agents, but I’ve turned them down because I don’t have any interest in investing the amount of time it would take to write a cookbook. My current focus is creating recipes that live on my website.
