GENERAL BLOG QUESTIONS
Q: Can you tell me how to start a food blog?
A: We have recently created a page on How To Start A Food Blog. Hopefully, this can help you get yourself started. We will be adding more information on a variety of topics such as social media, pinterest tips, SEO, etc.
Q: Can I share your recipe on my website?
A: All recipe photos/video/content on BakeItWithLove.com are protected by copyright laws. Photos can be shared with a link to our original recipe (not the bakeitwithlove.com home page). We do ask that you not copy the entire recipe.
Q: Where’s my comment? I left a comment and I don’t see it.
A: We love comments! All comments are personally checked for spam by us, and will be posted after we check them. If you leave a comment, even if it disagrees with the recipe, keep it respectful and constructive. Please know that we would love to help you get the recipe just right for you!
Any rude or offensive comments will not be posted.
Q: Can I use your photo/video in a round up?
A: If you are a blogger creating Recipe Roundups, then definitely, YES! Please feel free to use one of our photos or video embeds with a link back to the original recipe (not the home page!). You are always welcome to contact us to see if we have suggestions or to request a unique snippet to include in your roundup. Thank you!
Q: Do you work with brands for sponsored posts and advertising campaigns?
A: Yes, we do! We haven’t done too much of this to date, but we are available to brands that we know and love. We feel it is especially important to only promote the brands that we personally use. For advertisers, this means that we will easily have great things to say about you and your product(s). For our readers, this means that we are only sharing products that are we already know and love (and probably have in our pantry at any given time!).
All sponsored posts have a notice ‘this post was sponsored…’ that is clearly displayed on the post.
Q: Can I post a guest post recipe on your site?
A: Yes you can, all we ask that the recipe/guest post is 100% original and not published on other sites including your own as we want only original content. We will provide a back link to your site as well as create a guest author page/profile for you with a link to your website!
Q: How can I follow your blog and get updates?
A: You can subscribe to our email newsletter to receive updates each time we post a new recipe. Also, you can follow us on our social media channels! We are on YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and Flipboard.
Q: Can I print your recipes?
A: Each recipe has a print recipe button right at the top of the recipe page and within the recipe card with the recipe details! Before printing, you have the option to adjust the servings for the recipe by using the servings slider within the recipe card. Your ingredient amounts will be adjusted automatically for you, then select the print button under the image in the upper right hand corner of the recipe card.
Q: Do you have a recipe for _____ ?
A: If we do, it is here on Bake It With Love! We always have at least 10-20 recipes in the ‘to-do’ folder on our desk top, ready to be published as well as that many planned and in the works. You are most certainly welcome to ask if we have something coming soon. And if there is something that you really want us to make, let us know!
To search our existing recipes, use the search box in the right hand column, under the main website menu.
Q: I tried your recipe and it (burnt, was overcooked, raw, tasted awful, etc.)
A: Everything can vary on a recipe (the type of pan being used, type of oven, altitude, humidity, etc.). We do include times, but we also try to include other ways to judge the doneness of your recipe, such as internal temperatures, appearance, and texture.
As far as taste, everyone is different. We have a few recipes that are really good in our opinion, and most seem to really like them, but some will say it has too much of this or that. Cooking is a personal art form, and you need to be intuitive about a recipe and adjust the ingredients for your palate (example: If you hate Mayo and a recipe calls for a lot of it, try replacing the mayo with something else to your liking (like Greek yogurt)).
Q: I want to make one of your recipes, but I have questions!
A: We always welcome questions on recipe specifics! Your questions are, most likely, something that should be added into the recipe details. Use the ‘contact us‘ form, or comment on the recipe in question and we will happily get back to you ASAP!
Q: Can I email you directly with questions, comments or suggestions?
A: Certainly! All ‘contact us’ inquiries are sent to our email, but you can email us directly at angela @ bakeitwithlove.com
