Disclaimer On Reviews Of Products and Food:

We do not take payment for our reviews/blog posts but we do receive items from manufacturers, companies and public relation firms to review. We try keep an honest opinion about the items and to let our readers know we received the item to review. If the item is so bad we cannot test sample it or it is unsafe, we decline not review it publicly and/or simply turn down the chance to review it in the first place. We enjoy getting the chance to review books, food items and other things, it is enjoyable part of blogging after all! (Interested in the FTC Regulations on disclosure of freebies for review? Head here!)

Disclaimer on Affiliates:

We actively use affilate programs to support the cost of running the blog/website. We really appreciate our readers who click thru (thank you!). All companies we use affilate programs with are companies we do business with ourselves and feel have good business practices – we only recommend those we have had good dealings with. We often post links in our writing to make it easy for our readers to see the products used in our recipes or reviews.

Thank you,
