About Nourished Kitchen Recipes

  • About Using Nourished Kitchen
  • I love, love, love your site.  How do I get more? I love, love, love these emails!  The first way to get started is by subscribing – check out the subscription options at Nourished Kitchen here.  Once you’ve done that, make sure to follow Nourished Kitchen on Facebook, on Twitter and on Flickr.  Also, please check out our challenges and  online cooking classes.
  • I thought that you offered a free cultures and starters exchange?  What’s the deal? We did, at one point, a long while ago.  And we will again, eventually.  In the mean time, I recommend that you check out the resources page for affordable starters and cultures.
  • Hey!  Every time I go to your resources page, I don’t see any listings!  What gives? You’re using an adblocker, and that makes me sad.   Disable your ad blocker, and you’ll be able to see the content on the resources page.  Incidentally, viewing a website with an enabled adblocker is like stealing from the website owner. Displaying ads is one of only a *handful* of ways that bloggers like me get paid for their work, so when you enable an ad blocker and surf the web, you’re taking up bandwidth (which costs site owners money), but denying the site owner any potential earnings they’d earn from your loading their pages (which, by the way, costs you nothing).  Moreover, at Nourished Kitchen, when you view the site with an active adblocker, you’ll also be blocking not only ads, but also some really good content. And that’s not going to change.
  • I’m getting your emails!  I don’t want them, and why am I getting them in the first place? Well, simply put, you’re getting them because you signed up to receive them.  At the bottom of every email sent by Nourished Kitchen is an unsubscribe link.  Click that, and you’re golden.
  • I’m a (insert your religion here), and I’m shocked that you’ve addressed (Halloween, Christmas, Yule, Ramadan, Rosh Hashannah, Obon, Easter, Easter Eggs, Eid al Fitr … you name it). First and foremost, Nourished Kitchen is about food – it’s about healthy food and that includes making the well-loved foods from our favorite cultural and religious festivals special.  We embrace and respect all religions, cultures, political affiliations, you name it.  If you like good food and want more, this is the place for you.  It is not, however, the place to degrade any cultural or religious tradition that you don’t personally follow or to spread unsubstantiated ‘facts’ about other religious or cultural traditions.    There are over six billion people in the world, learn to respect the traditions of others.  If you don’t like what you read, then simply don’t read it and let others enjoy it.  So, I’m not interested in whether you think people were vegans before the “Great Flood.”  I don’t care if you think pork and shellfish are treyf.  I’m just here for the food, folks.

I (my husband, my child, my sister-in-law, best friend’s dog) suffer from [heart, liver, you name it] disease.  What do you know about treating that disease through food? Nothing.  I honestly can’t, and shouldn’t and won’t respond to questions surrounding specific medical conditions.  You need to talk to your doctor or health care practitioner, I’m neither.  I know how to cook, and I do that well, but I just can’t tell you whether a certain food can help you with any number of ills.   What I do know is this: whole foods, traditionally prepared to maximize nutrition, are good for you.  So is an active lifestyle.  The more you adhere to both, the better off you’ll be.

Q: I work in advertising/PR/marketing/freebies-r-us and I want to send you free stuff!

A: Why thank you.  Who doesn’t love free stuff? To be perfectly honest, I’m really only interested in small-scale farms and companies producing sustainable goods.  And I hardly ever mention brand names on Nourished Kitchen outside of giveaways, which I only conduct rarely.

I love your recipes!  Can I post them to my blog/website? Please do!  However, please refrain from copying posts word-for-word or posting my photographs on your site as doing so infringes upon intellectual property rights.  If you would like to share a recipe, please consider posting about why you liked the recipe, how it appealed to you and include a link back to the recipe and to Nourished Kitchen.   Alternatively, you may rewrite the recipe in your own words, using your own photograph, indicating that the recipe is adapted from Nourished Kitchen – using a link back to Nourished Kitchen and the recipe in question.  Another great way to share the real food love is by sharing a link to your favorite Nourished Kitchen recipe on twitter or facebook.
