Privacy and Other Policies

Our Privacy Policy

We consider everyone who visits us here to be a friend. And because you all are our friends, we will never sell or share any personal information about you.

Affiliate Notice

We do not use obvious ads on our site. We’re sure punching the monkey is as annoying to you as it is to us. We do earn money as members of affiliate programs, including Amazon Associates. In these programs, we provide links to items on ecommerce websites. When one of our readers clicks on one of these links and makes a purchase on the site — the original linked item or not — we earn a small percentage of your total. This does not affect the price you pay; rather our portion comes from the seller as part of their cost of doing business. Most importantly, we only link to companies that we like and trust. The only shady site we will ever send you to is this site.

Samples and Reviews

From time to time, we receive samples from manufacturers and producers. If we like these products and think they will benefit you, we will review them and/or use them in recipes. We will always tell you when an item was provided to us for review. And we will never take money to review a product.

The Bottom Line

Honestly, we’re not in this for the money. We started a blog because we missed writing things other than technical specs and business procedures. We have been fortunate in that we have had the opportunity to actually make money writing books and articles. But nothing is more important to us than you. We love to share stories and ideas. You, our friends, are truly the reason we do this. Because of that, we want very much to hear your thoughts, ideas, and concerns. Please feel free to let us know what’s on your mind by using our contact page.
