Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

Under our Terms of Service, children under 13 are not allowed to access our service.
Links to third party Websites and Affiliate Discretion
We may include links on this site for your use and reference. We are not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You should be aware that the privacy policies of these sites may differ from our own.
I may occasionally insert affiliate links to services and goods that I can wholeheartedly recommend. If you click on any of the affiliate links and make a purchase within a certain time frame, I’ll earn a small commission. The commission is paid by the third parties, not by you.
Money earned helps me to continue sharing my passion, which is sharing recipes and photos with my lovely visitors. Thank you very much for your support!
