Are your recipes any good?
Well, that depends on your taste buds. It also depends on how crazy the recipe is in structure and if I tested it before sharing it. Sometimes I spend so much time with the photos that I decide that work shouldn’t go to waste. Thus, I may post the recipe anyway. If someone gives it a try, doesn’t like it, and tweaks it to make it better I just hope they choose to share their changes with me. (See my Usage Rights Policy for more details.)
Why do you have step-by-step?
Let’s just say my training development background has seeped into my blog. As a former instructional designer I know some people learn best through visuals. I’ve also had more than one reader thank me for the steps. If you aren’t into steps then you are in luck due to reason #2.
Why are there no stories?
Honestly, I love finding recipes on other sites, but I think The Pioneer Woman started us all on a craze of “you gotta have a background story.” Well, I disagree, politely of course. I always scroll right past the story to get to the recipe format I can print out. So, my recipes will always have the recipe at the top of the page. If you want a background story, reach out to me, and I’ll let you know if there was a story behind it.
Are the recipes created by The Flip Flop Wife?
Yes! If they are not mine, but I tweaked them, I link to the original recipe rather than reprinting it. Why? Because I believe that if another person put all that time and effort into creating a recipe I’m going to give them the kudos for it. That means anyone, be it a big food company or another blogger.
