Questions about ingredients or recipes on The Perfect Pantry

One of the ways I learn is by trying to answer your questions. When I don't know the answer, I'll read and ask and find the answer for you, or refer you to a more qualified source.

The best way to ask questions about an ingredient or recipe is to leave a comment on the relevant post.

However, if your question is off the topic of a specific post, please post your question on our Facebook page or email to me.

Please note that I share hundreds of recipes here on The Perfect Pantry, and it takes a lot of time to create and test those recipes for you. It's my policy not to send readers recipes that I have not published here. Sometimes I have recipes waiting in the wings, and I'll let you know if that's the case. (The best way to ensure that you see every recipe is to sign up for email updates.)

I hope you understand that I do not have the time to do personalized research to find recipes for you. Please check Food Blog Search through this link, or use the Food Blog Search box at the bottom of the right-hand column, if you don't find a specific recipe here on The Perfect Pantry.

Reprinting content or photos

The content of The Perfect Pantry is protected by copyright laws of the United States. If you would like to excerpt text or use a photograph from this blog for noncommercial purposes, you are welcome to do so, with credit given and a link back to this site.

If you would like to use my content (text or photos) for commercial purposes (including television or radio appearances, books, magazine articles, or blog posts for which you are getting paid or which readers must pay to access, or posts on blogs that carry advertising, including Google AdSense), please ask for permission. In most cases, permission will be granted.

Please do not steal. Using any post in its entirety is content theft. And it's not very nice.

Links and link exchanges

Every post on The Perfect Pantry contains links to recipes I think you might enjoy on several other sites. I use Food Blog Search to search more than 3,000 food blogs for recipes that use the ingredient I'm featuring in any given post. It's a great way to discover new blogs and new recipes. (Please note that if a blog uses profanity or obscenity, I probably won't link to it. That's just me.)

Also, I don't do link exchanges. Every blog I link to is one I read, enjoy, and think my readers would enjoy. If you request a link exchange, I'll probably follow your blog for a while before deciding whether to add it to my blogroll. If I do, I'll send you a note to let you know.

About advertising

The companies that advertise on The Perfect Pantry help to subsidize the cost of producing high-quality content, and the cost of keeping that content free to readers. I try to incorporate advertising in a way that doesn't impede your enjoyment of this site, and I carefully monitor the ads to ensure that the content is appropriate for blog readers of all ages.

If you would like to advertise on The Perfect Pantry, please follow this link to BlogHer Ads.

About product reviews, samples, books

Before you add me to your email blast for public relations, product endorsement, free samples, cookbook reviews, etc., please read my Product Review Policy. (Full disclosure: I don't accept free stuff, and I don't accept payment to write about anything that appears on this site.)

Thanks for visiting The Perfect Pantry.
