Photography & Recipe Policies
All recipes and photographs are created by me unless specifically noted on the photo or in the recipe. All recipes and photographs are copyrighted under The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie. If you would like to use my recipe please link back to me to give me credit for the recipe as I work very hard on creating them and taking photographs for the blog. I also request that you rewrite the directions in your own words. If you would like to use one of my photographs, please send me at email to Nicole(at)FoodieMisadventures(dot)com to get approval before re-posting. Also please note that I do not allow both photographs and recipes to be published together on any website.
General Product Review Policies
From time to time I will review products or events to share my opinions with my readers. I also occasionally accept products from companies to try for free. When I write about a product that was provided to me, I always make it clear in the post and provide an honest and an accurate reflection of my thoughts and feelings of the product. If I do not like a product I will state that in the review or will not post a review on the blog. There are times when I will accept compensation for sponsored posts. This will be made clear in the post and will be linked back to this policy. I occasionally use Affiliate Links that may not be disclosed in individual posts.
I follow the FTC rules for sponsored content. You can read more about these policies on the FTC website.
Please note that all disclosure policies listed on this page apply to tweets made from @marvelousfoodie, posts on the Foodie Misadventures Facebook page and photos shared on the Foodie Misadventures Instagram feed.
