Who We Are

Our website address is We share the joys of simple home cooking.

Our website contains published YouTube videos of our recipes and uses Google Analytics to better understand how our visitors (you) interact with our website. This allows us to provide you with improved offerings and other services. Please refer to the YouTube Terms of Service and Google’s Privacy Policy pages for more information.

While we do not run ads on our website, we participate in the Amazon Associate program, where we earn a small amount from qualifying purchases through affiliate links at zero cost to you. The product(s) that we share are curated from the ones that we use. If the exact product is not available, we will display the ones that we find are similar.


When you leave comments on the website, we collect the data shown in the comments form (name, email, recipe rating, website link, and comment message), and also your IP (Internet Protocol) address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


Email addresses collected through comments are only used for comment notification. It may also be used to respond to requests, inquiries, or complaints you made either through comments or via email that you send to us.

These email addresses will not be sold, rented, or distributed to third parties.


If you leave a comment on our website, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for 1 year.

We also store cookies that contain the recipe ratings you have submitted, your IP (Internet Protocol) address, and any other information you manually supply, including your name and email address. This information is used as a measure to prevent rating spam. These cookies last for 30 days.

For affiliate links or displayed products that we have curated from Amazon, clicking on them creates a cookie that stores our referral information. This is for us to earn the affiliate commission once the qualifying purchase is made. This cookie lasts for 24 hours.


We use Google Analytics to view our website performance and to understand how visitors interact with our website. As such, Google Analytics uses cookies to collect demographic and advertising information, and report website usage statistics without personally identifying you. These cookies will last for 2 years. More information can be found here:

Embedded Content from Other Websites

Posts on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites (such as YouTube) behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited them.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who We Share Your Data With

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our website policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety.

How Long We Retain Your Data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

What Rights You Have Over Your Data

If you have left comments, you can request to:

  1. access your personal data
  2. erase any personal data we hold about you (not including any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes), and/or,
  3. restrict from further processing your personal data

You may send us an email at [email protected] to notify us of your request. We will respond in a reasonable period of time.

Where We Send Your Data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Wherever we collect personal and sensitive information, it is encrypted and transmitted through a secure connection. You can verify this by looking at the lock icon and identifying the “https” at the beginning of the website address.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
