Can I repost / republish your recipe or photo?
If you would like to republish a recipe of mine, please feel free to do so by using one photo and a link back to the recipe. If you would like to republish the recipe on your site, please link back to the original recipe at the top of the post, and rewrite the recipe in your own words to put your own spin on it. The method of a recipe is my intellectual property so unless you have asked me specifically if you can republish this, you need to write it in your own words.
Why do you post in grams?
Lots of my recipes are posted in grams - the reasoning behind this is that it is the most accurate way to bake. I don't post my recipes in cups because cups are not an accurate way of baking. You won’t go into a commercial kitchen and see them making a cake measured in cups. If I have recipe tested in grams, the recipe will be posted that way too, because I want you to get the most accurate outcome possible! I don’t see the point in adding conversions that weren’t recipe tested - all that would be doing would be increasing the chances of the recipe failing. I already test each recipe multiple times before it goes anywhere near the internet and it is a waste of my time and ingredients to then also have to re-test a recipe using a less accurate method when I already have one which works perfectly.
A main issue that I see on blogs is that a recipe will come out differently to how it was intended due to differences in measuring technique. Using a scale eliminates this completely and by posting in grams I can ensure that the way you are measuring your ingredients is the same way that I am too. You can purchase a scale very cheaply (mine was $22 on amazon and I use it multiple times daily and it has lasted incredibly well), and it totally removes the margin of error caused by baking by volume. Scales are great - they are super accurate, and you have way less dishes! Please don't ask me to provide conversions, as I would just be googling the result to provide you a less accurate version of my recipe. You are welcome to do the google conversions yourself though!
I made your recipe but it didn't work can you help?
I'll always do my best to help but please know that my ability to help will be limited if you have made substitutions to my original recipe e.g. if my recipe calls for brown sugar and you use white sugar instead or if you use 1 egg instead of 2 - these seemingly small changes can have a big effect on the end result. I am happy to help wherever I can though!
I want to make a substitution, can you tell me if it will work?
(see above question) The short answer unfortunately is probably going to be "I don't know sorry". I create and test recipes to be reliable with the ingredients and method listed in the final recipe, anything beyond that I could make a guess about but it is really just a guess.
What is your Instagram handle?
I really love your stuff, how can I support you?
The best way is to stay in touch! Sign up for my email list here. Pin the recipes if you like them. Check-in from time to time to see new recipes - share your favorites with your friends and family, leave me a rating and a comment if you make it (these help so much), and if you make a recipe tag me on Instagram, one of my very favorite things is seeing people make and enjoy a recipe of mine!
