However, it is most likely that I will use the first option, deletion of email or comment without response from me.

 The Nitty Gritty

Recipes. As for the recipes on this blog, many of them are my own creations. If a recipe belongs to someone else, I clearly state the author of the recipe or where I found the recipe. You may re-post the ingredient list from my recipes on your personal blog or website, but you must rewrite the recipe instructions in your own words. A link back to my blog is required. If you use one of my recipes and make alterations to it, please give a link back to my blog for the original recipe.

Photos. Unless otherwise noted, all food photos are my own…for better or for worse. My photos may be used, as is and without any changes, on Pinterest and Facebook with a link back to my blog page on which the original photo is posted. All other uses of my photography is strictly prohibited without express written permission from me. It is absolutely prohibited to reformat any of my photos or to reassemble them in a collage format for any purpose without my written permission.

  • Note to bloggers who wish to use one of my photos in a collage format for a recipe round-up: I truly appreciate being included in “recipe round-ups”. However, my written permission (via email) is required for posting a photo from my blog. I am quite generous to fellow bloggers, so please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    I have just been reading through a few of your recipes (drawn here by the glut of patty pan in my garden) and gleaming some ideas. I think your page will be added to one of my favorites for food ideas.
    Here is a idea for you to try out, if you want, Lavender Butter Biscuits. I recently tried some at a community garden, they were made with the flowers (not the seed heads) and were last years flowers. It was an amazing taste. I have never really thought to eat lavender but it is different. I was not given the recipe but the lady who made them gave me permission to try and create my own. If you have a chance or inclination to try these I would be grateful to see how you did with them.
    Thank you for the ideas

      Hi, Helen. Lucky you to have patty pan squash. They have always been some of my favorite type of summer squash. The Lavender Butter Biscuits sound really delicious. I have eaten a few things with lavender, including a wonderful lavender fruit drink this summer at the farmer’s market. You’re right, lavender gives food an amazing taste. I accept your challenge to come up with a biscuit recipe using lavender. Thanks for the great idea. ~Terri

    Your choice of light green in your recipe index is difficult to read. A darker color would be appreciated.
