How to Contact Kalyn

Thanks for Your Interest!
Kalyn's Kitchen is my personal blog, where I share recipes I'm cooking in my own kitchen. I'm a fan of the South Beach Diet, and unless otherwise noted, I try to make my recipes suitable for the low-glycemic index way of eating made popular by that diet. This site is not directly affiliated with The South Beach Diet, and any information or suggestions provided here are merely my opinion. If you're interested in Getting Started on the South Beach Diet, I always recommend reading the book first so you understand the science behind this way of eating.

But not everyone who reads this blog is a follower of the South Beach Diet, so in 2013 I gave my blog a makeover, adding Recipe Labels so it's easier to find recipes for many other types of diets.   Just click any of the category labels in the new second row of tabs below, and you can scroll through all the recipes on the site that are suitable for that type of diet.  (Here's more about how the new categories work.)

Answering Questions from Readers:
I love to hear from people who are readers of Kalyn's Kitchen and will do my best to answer simple questions, although I don't have the training or the time to give full-fledged dieting advice. If your question is about a specific recipe, please consider leaving it as a comment on that post so others can benefit from the answer.

How to Leave a Comment:
To leave a comment, just click the link that says *Comments* at the end of the post. If you have a website you can choose one of the OpenID choices from the dropdown menu.  If you're not registered with one of those choices you will have to use your Google Account in order to comment.  (I used to accept anonymous comments, but due to excessive comment spam I had to stop allowing them.)  Type the comment and then click *Publish Your Comment.*  The comment will come to me in an e-mail and won't show up on the blog until I publish it, but I will try to respond as quickly as I can. If you prefer to e-mail me directly, see the contact information at the end of this post.  (PLEASE NOTE:  If you're leaving a comment  with a question on this post, there are now more than 200 comments, which means you need to click "newer" at the end of the 200 comments showing if you come back to see the answer.)

Reach me Through Social Media:
I'm probably not young enough to be a wildly enthusiastic user of social media, but I do check in with Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ a few times each day, and try to respond to people who reach me there.  If you're on Facebook, "liking" the Kalyn's Kitchen page is one way to be sure you'll see every time a recipe is featured on the blog.

My Thoughts About Reviewing Cookbooks or Products
This blog is about what I'm cooking in my own kitchen, so I'm only interested in talking about cookbooks or products I'm personally using and would happily buy again. Because I have limited time to try new products or cookbooks, I have decided to no longer accept books or other products for review.  I do love to mention cookbooks I'm using and talk about my favorite products on the blog, but when I do that I enjoy being able to tell my readers that I bought them myself.

There are so many food bloggers writing cookbooks these days, and I try to buy as many as I can to be supportive to my fellow bloggers.  If you're a food blogger who has written a book, feel free to drop me a line to let me know about it and if it interests me I'll be happy to buy your book.

About Advertising on Kalyn's Kitchen
If you are promoting a food-related product and would be interested in advertising on a network of food blogs, please contact BlogHerAds, PlateFull, or Lijit. I only accept advertising through those networks, and  don't sell text links of any type.

  1. Thanks for letting me know you're enjoying the blog. If you read the Frequently Asked Questions, I talk about why I don't provide nutritional information. I do tell how many servings I think it makes on each recipe, but it's not precise because South Beach doesn't limit servings on most foods and there is no idea how much would be a serving for you.

  2. Finally a site worth visiting for us on the southbeach diet!!!!!! yay!!!!!

  3. You had a recipe for ground turkey with cilantro mayonaise in a wrap. Can't find it

    Help

    ReplyDelete
  4. Thanks Tammy!

    I don't know if you tried entering "ground turkey cilantro" into the search box, but that's the easiest way to see if a recipe is on the site. I can't think of any recipe I've posted that used ground turkey, cilantro, and mayo however, and I'm sure I haven't posted a wrap with those ingredients. Could it have been these Turkey Lettuce Wraps and maybe you added some mayo?

  5. Your are a sainted person to do this site! We love soup and didn't think we could have it much on SBD phase 1 but i just printed a bunch of your wonderful recipes and am going to make soup right now!!! thank you so very much - your efforts are gonna keep us on the diet and we WILL LOSE WEIGHT!!!!!

  6. Dear Kayln,
    I just wanted to thank you for your blogs. I need to lose weight and not sure what plan to use. My neighbor say to try South Beach. I'm not a cook but must learn to change my life style and when goggling, I found your site. There as so many recipes I would like to try. Seeing all them on your site seems that this is a do able life style. Thanks for all the work you have put into it.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Good luck to you in your weight loss efforts. I know South Beach will work if you stick with the plan.

  8. This is a reply to the anonymous person who left the links here to an organization which has reportedly "banned" agave nectar. I am not posting your comment, because after about 10 minutes of internet research I came to the conclusion that this is not a legitimate organization, despite their slick-looking websites (all of which link back and forth in an endless loop to each other.) I don't find any mention of this organization in legitimate discussions on the web about the glycemic index, not even on Wikipedia or The World's Healthiest Foods, both of which have a long list of sources for Glycemic Index research. Doesn't that seem a bit odd for an "Internationally Accredited Testing and Certification Organization" that is "Approved by International Governments, including the United States Government." In fact, the longer you click around on their site you will see that every link leads to another version of their slick website, without a single name on the contact page.

    As for my own opinion regarding agave nectar, I continue to believe that it is safe for most people, particularly in the very small amounts that I use it in my recipes. For persons with diabetes or other blood sugar issues, I recommend you consult your doctor if you have questions about using it.

  9. Hi Kalyn,
    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your wonderful recipes. Haven't tried one yet that I didn't love. It makes it so much easier to eat healthy.
    Please keep up the great work!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Thanks so much; I'm so happy to hear that.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Kalyn! I've been meaning to thank you for months now. Your recipes have made my family love me a little bit more :) lol The stir fry green beans with pine nuts are a big hit (made at least once a week) as well as the garlic roasted broccoli. Simple and ah-maze-inggg! My 2 year old can hardly wait for his veggies to cook anymore! I also love the west african peanut stew!! I don't know what made me try it, but I am so glad I did. I keep all those ingredients in the pantry in case I have no time to really throw down in the kitchen. You know, speaking of which, have you thought about doing some weekly menus or mentioning how to freeze the meal? I like how Robin Miller (food network) integrates a staple ingredient into the weekly schedule. I've been meaning to try something like that out (not yet sure about the once a month cooking scenario). I would never ask to take any time away from you posting recipes (I'd suffering without em!) Although I would love to hear your take on that and perhaps give me some encouragement and guidance! Either way I'll be back!

    Thank you Kalyn! ILY :)

  12. Elizabeth, thanks! Glad you are enjoying the food. I haven't seen that show (don't have Food Network, lol) and have no plans to do menus though. I can barely keep up with posting recipes!

  13. I can't post comments where people leave an e-mail address. Just clarifying that in case someone wonders why their comment didn't show up.

  14. Hi Kalyn,
    I'm on day three of Phase One. Doing well. Question is flax meal ok for phase one? wouldn't it be considered a carb. I saw a recipe for flax bread that is just Flax meal and oil and eggs. What say you?
    thanks

  15. Quite honestly, I have no idea if that would be phase one, but I kind of doubt it.

  16. Hi,

    Nice site ;) Have you tried any recipes with Chervil yet?

    joni

    ReplyDelete
  17. Joni, I haven't used Chervil, but if you enter it in the search box you will find a few links to other sites who have used it.

  18. My daughter discovered your blog while trying to find a chocolate cookies recipe. Since then I've tried your spicy sweet potato fries and the napa cabbage salad with radishes, sugar snaps, etc. Both were fabulous! Tonight I'm trying your quinoa recipe and want to fix your minestrone soup with barley.
    Keep up the great work - so fun to find a new recipe site!
    P.S. I like Fine Cooking Magazine too - my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Shelley, so glad you are enjoying the blog. And anyone who likes Fine Cooking has got to be a good cook, in my opinion!

  20. I saw a recipe yesterday for slaw with carrots, jicama, and radishes, but I cannot find it today. Please help.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Tabatha, it is still there, the second one down on the Home page. The best thing to do when you're looking for a certain recipe is to enter the ingredients into the search bar. Here is the Jicama and Carrot Slaw.

  22. Sarah, no grains are allowed for phase one.

  23. Hi Im new to south beach Ive finished one week I lost 4 lbs and Im happy should I go to phase 2 after 2 weeks or continue for alittle longer my total weight lose should be 30 lbs

    ReplyDelete
  24. Chanie, that's not something I'm qualified to give advice about, but I do think Phase One can get pretty boring after a few weeks. The purpose of the other phases is to transition to a way of eating you can stick with for the long haul.

  27. As a diabetic I feel that the glycemic LOAD is more important than the glycemic index. It deals with insulin resistance and is the real issue most diabetics have issues with. Is there any way to have recipes or foods in your recipes calculate the glycemic load?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sorry but I am not diabetic so I don't know anything about calculating glycemic load.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I was wondering if I am missing something. Do you have your own cookbook to purchase? If so can you post a link. If not, are you planning on doing one? I would love to have one. Thank you for all your hard work and delicious recipes.
    Best Regards

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sweeps99, I don't have a cookbook and even though I've had offers to write one, it's not something I'm planning to do at this time. Cookbooks are a huge amount of work for the money you make, and I can barely keep up with my blog. Thanks for the vote of confidence though. If I change my mind, I'll definitely annouce it on the blog.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Your Blog ROCKS! Thank you so much for making what I felt was an impossible diet to follow - easy, and appetizing. My husband and I started South Beach just a few days ago. He found your blog and all the great recipes for phase 1 and I must say, it has made our lives so much easier. Half the battle of a diet is how it fits with your lifestyle. You have made that fit perfect synergy. I adapted the breakfast casserole to fit our likes, and breakfast is now a no-brainer. I have the coconut macaroons in the over now and can't wait to have a couple for dessert tonight. Keep up the great blog and you have made this easy as pie (sugar-free, no carb of course!). - Sincerely, soon to be smaller - AG

  32. So happy to hear that the blog is helpful for you and that you're enjoying the recipes!

  33. I love your blog and just printed out the yogurt sauce.

    You mention discarding the stem of the dill plant.

    I love dill and years ago began saving all the stems, cutting them into pieces and then dried them. I put pieces of them in soups and things that I roast in the oven or crock pot. The more dill flavor I want, the more pieces of stem I use.

    Start out with a little until you know how flavorful they can be.

  34. Mary, that sounds like a great idea, thanks!

  35. I stumbled across your blog while trying to track down a new supply source for the discontinued Costco Herbed Seafood Rub... and have been coming back to this site since! :)
    So when I discovered this weekend that Costco has re-launched this product (here in Canada at least...) I thought you'd want to know (and share the news with your readers. It is repackaged in a square plastic spice jar, so its easy to miss on the shelf - but its there! Part # 536707 ($3.99 Cdn for 368g). Its identical to the previous one sold in the round jar previously.

  36. Jo-Ann, thanks for telling me. I'll definitely look for it next time I go to Costco. And glad you have enjoyed the blog!

  37. Hi Kalyn (love your name),
    I must admit, your blog is the first blog that I have ever really read and subscribed to. I am loving it! Thanks for taking the time to post such wonderful ideas. I was wondering, since you have pictures of so many canned items on your page, if you talk about how to can food anywhere on here. I am really interested in canned food recipes and how-to's. Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi Elisheba,

    Love your name too! I'm afraid the canning jars header is just symbolic; I mostly freeze the stuff from my garden and wrote a post about that here: How to Freeze Garden Tomatoes, Fresh Herbs, and Vegetables. To find canning tips on a blog, I'd recommend using Food Blog Search.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Why no nutritional info?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Pat I talk about that in Frequently Asked Questions. I chose South Beach to manage my weight because I didn't want to have to calculate points, carbs, calories, or other information for everything I ate, so people who need that information will have to calculate it on their own.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Kaylyn, thank you so much. Your wonderful recipes keep me motivated. They are truly taste sensations. Even my picayune naturally skinny husband enjoys htm (as long as I make him some potatoes too). Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can't believe I just found you today!! I am very excited and will visit often. What a terrific job you have done.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Kalyn~ I started again on the South Beach diet on New Years Day. I have already lost 11 pounds. And I have used your site every step of the way. Thank you for all your hard work to make my life a little bit easier.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Loved the recipe for apple cranberry crumble. My suggestion is that after sauteing the apples in a cast iron pan, you put the topping on and put the whole thing in the oven. It's a homey, delicious looking presentation (with less dishes to wash) in the pan. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Just found your blog and I love the recipes! I've done South Beach in the past and found it to be limiting in terms of cooking for me vs. cooking for the rest of the family. Your recipes seem much more inclusive of the enitre family (so I can just cook one meal for everyone). Do you have any suggestions for healthy (South Beach) versions of ranch or Caesar type salad dressings?

    Thank you!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Shari, I make the ranch dressing from the Hidden Valley packets (buttermilk version, low-fat mayo). For Caesar, I love Cardini's Caesar, which is recommended in one of the books. I think most dressings are okay for South Beach as long as there is not more than 2-3 grams of sugar per serving and the fat is olive oil or soybean oil.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I discovered your blog about a month ago, and have been cooking dinner almost exclusively from your recipes for a couple of weeks. My husband wants to lose 20 more pounds (he's lost 40) and I want to lose about 10. We've done South Beach before, and I stumbled upon your blog while doing a google search on SB diet recipes. THANK YOU for having delicious low-glycemic recipes.
    I also happen to be a teacher; middle school special ed.

  48. Catherine, I'm so glad you are enjoying the blog!

  49. I stumbled onto your site by accident when looking for info to restart the SBD. I fell off the wagon and wanted to restart my "new" way of eating and losing weight. I would love some recipes for salad dressings. The store bought ones are so high in sodium, and I have to watch that closely. Any suggestions? I'm not a fan of bleu cheese, but I love ranch and vidalia onion/tomato dressing. Any help would be appreciated.
    I started the diet with my daughter two years ago and was doing well, but got busy taking care of my elderly mother and lost my way. My daughter lost 110# and has maintained it for all this time. I'm so proud of her, I want to do the same, and needed something like your blog to get me back on track. Thanks for your dedication. I found many great ideas. Back to salad dressings, any ideas? Thanks, Deb

    ReplyDelete
  50. There are quite a few salad dressing listed on this page:

    Phase One Salads and Salad Dressings

    You could probably find more by entering "salad dressing" into the search bar.

  51. Kalyn,

    I am sure you get many comments and emails on a daily basis, but I just wanted to thank you so much for your blog. My husband and I were on the South Beach diet a few months back, and fell off about around the holidays. We are now back on our second week of phase one. This time around, we are cooking recipes from your blog and never before have we actually enjoyed this phase!!

    We have found most of the recipes out there to be unsatisfying leaving us feeling like phase one was basically oppressive and hard to stick with. Your recipes are not only delicious, but help us stick to our diet goals. Who would have ever imagined I could get my husband to eat any green vegetable -- let alone KALE!! I don't normally contact the authors of the blogs we use, but yours has been an invaluable tool and I am just so grateful for all of your hard work. This is exactly what we needed.

    THANK YOU!

  53. HI Kalyn! I just recently got back into southbeach diet and your website has certainly made being on this diet so much fun! I was dreading getting back into it (especially phase 1) but your website made every day go by so fast! I can't believe I'm now on Phase 2 Day 9 and absolutely enjoying it! Thank you sooo much and keep those great recipes coming!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi Kayln...Was feeling a bit intimidated about starting on the SB diet, but after finding your website and having a look through all of your thoughtfully selected recipes, my husband and I cannot wait to get started. I'm looking forward to taking control of my diet while being able to try some amazing new recipes. Thanks for taking the time to put together this website.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Kalyn - My hubby lost 40 lbs on SBD 10 years ago but has slowly gained it back. Neither of us was too excited about starting over with another 2 weeks of eggs, chicken and zucchini. Since finding your blog we've gone through P1 without feeling deprived - we're just just eating delicious food and we have so many choices. Thanks for all your hard work - tonight we're having chicken (piccata) and zucchini (cheesy baked) but it's so good!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hi Kalyn,

    Thank you for your superb blog. I've been eating low GI/SBD-style for some time now but due to some health problems have recently started trying to cut wheat from my diet. Your phase 1 recipes have been a tremendous help to me during this time - the eggplant pizzas were the thing that made me think 'you know what? I can make this wheat-free thing work!'. So a thousand thank yous!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi am looking for an SBD friendly snack that doesn't spoil so I can leave it in my desk as something to nibble on when I get hungry. no refrigeration required is a necessity.

    no nuts please!

    ReplyDelete
  58. The only thing I can think of offhand is Roasted Garbanzo Beans. There are a couple of recipes for them on the blog if you use the search box.

  59. Good Morning Kalyn, My name is Sara and live in Pennsylvaia.My doctor recently find out my insulin resistance level was very high and also fatty liver. I started the phase one of South beach baed on my doctor recommendation and I struggle with the recipes. I see here that youhave so many different recipes. I want to know if I canuse your recipes for phase one and what about snacking. Im only eating the suggested snacks in the book. I am actually following only the book recipes and meal plan. what about the portions?? am confused with the portions, do i need to measure everything and also Can i have the suggested snack and latr if I crave for something have a nother snack??? Thanks for your help!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hi Sara,

    I really know nothing about insulin resistance disorder so I hesitate giving advice to someone who is using the diet for a medical condition. I do recommend thoroughly read the original South Beach Diet book though; I think that will answer most of these questions about things like portion size and what foods are best. Also you might check with your doctor for some of these questions, such as the one about having another snack. Good luck.

  61. Hi Kalyn,

    I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for this wonderful website. I found your site a couple of weeks ago and have used your meals many times since then. I am a colorectal cancer survivor and it has been recommended to eat a low carb, low sugar, high protein diet. Your meals really hit that right on the head. Since I have found your site, I stopped looking elsewhere! Thanks so much for all of the hard work you put into this site. Have a great week! Penny

  62. Hi Penny,
    I'm so glad to hear that the blog has been helpful for you. Thanks for the nice feedback and best wishes for continued good health.

    ReplyDelete
  63. HI Kalyn. I love your site! Have you ever done a weekly grocery list for some of your recipes that include similar ingredients? i don't want to buy excessively or waste ingredients when I cannot think of another way to use them, so just wondering if you have ever done anything like that. Thank you!! Let's say goodbye to this baby weight :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hi Lindsey,
    I already spend far too much time on the blog, so I am definitely not going to post grocery lists. You can make your own list using the Ziplist Feature though (on the right.) If you need to find ideas for recipes using similar ingredients, just enter the ingredients into the search bar. That's also a good way to find a recipe to use what you have on hand.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work on this website. I have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease and was searching the internet for gluten free recipes when I stumbled upon your site. i have spent about 5 1/2 hours so far building an arsenal of wonderful, naturally gluten free recipes from your phase one collection. Thank you for being so well organized and helping me reclaim my passion for food, even with the dietary restriction. <3

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi Kalyn - wow! I'm on Day 5 of Phase 1 and am loving the SBD so far, and especially, especially the fantastic blog and recipes from you. I had the chicken/red and green cabbage/onion coleslaw tonight for dinner and it was delish!

    My question to you is: I know you are not affiliated with SBD. However, is there some way that I can enter the ingredients from one of your recipes onto their site and log it into my journal? I know this is possible with WW but I can't find anywhere to make this happen on SBD.

    Thanks again Kalyn - you are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'm afraid I can't answer that because I don't know anything about how the South Beach Site works (I have never used it.)

  68. I love your meals, it has helped me to try out other stuff instead of the same recipes in the south beach diet books...I lost weight with the south beach diet recipes before but I've put on a little weight and wanted to try new meals has it got a bit boring eating the same thing over and over again...not that south beach diet meals are bad but on phase one, I needed something different to keep me motivated which your meals has....Your'e an inspiration!!

  69. Kalyn,

    I just stumbled upon this website via Pinterest and I am in heaven. I have yet to make anything, but will start this week, as I will be starting the SB diet. I need to loose a few lbs before a surgery I have coming up. Thank you for creating this website and organizing all the recipes the way you have (by phase). This is a dream come true for me!! Thanks!!

    Take care!

  70. Do you have an alternate version of this recipe for those of us who are seriously lactose-intolerant? Milk cooked into a recipe goes through a chemical change that doesn't bother me. But I can't eat anything with cheese cooked into it. Any ideas? Thanks.

  71. Sherry, I have no idea what recipe you are referring to? And truthfully I don't have much experience substituting things for cheese.

  74. I just wanted to say how much I LOVE your blog. Your recipes are delicious, easy to follow, and made with interesting ingredients while still being made with things that I can find at my local grocery store. Thank you so much for blogging!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Oh my goodness...I have made so many things from your blog and have pretty much LOVED all of them! I was wondering if you have any ideas on snacks that can be made at the beginning of the week to have throughout the week. I'm a full-time working mom of 2 children and am also taking college courses in order to get my masters degree, so time is not always on my side! You seem to have an abundance of good food ideas so I'm interested in what kind of snacks you indulge in. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hi Cara,
    Glad to hear you are enjoying the blog. Not sure I have any brilliant ideas for snacks, but if you enter "snacks" or "snack" into the google search bar on the blog, you will find a post I wrote about this, as well as any recipe I've mentioned that I eat as a snack. For me, lots of veggies and dip and sugar snap peas, and of course string cheese!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Just found your blog and all started reading all the recipes and suggestions! Very excited to have found you!!!

  84. Hi Kalyn, I am planning to make your ground turkey/sweet potato stew for dinner tonight .looks amazing! It calls for a can of coconut milk. Can I substitute the coconut milk in a box? It's sold in the supermarket near rice or almond milk. I'm not sure if they are the same thing...thanks far any insight!

    Just want to share with you that I love your site. We started perusing your site when we decided to do the Low Carb diet. We have since changed it up a bit to the Fast Metabolism diet as a means to incorporate all the things we like in the proper combination. Your site is so multi faceted, it fits all "diets" and lifestyles. Thank you for your commitment. You are one of my top "go to" sites to feed my family a healthy meal.

  88. Hi Kalyn! I've been a fan of your blog for many years! Thanks for all your hard work!!

    Just wondering if anyone could recommend an app that would allow me to read this site on my iphone?

    Thanks!!

  89. Diane, I use my phone on the site often to find recipes, but as far reading it daily, there is nothing I know of that will do that. I would have to pay someone lots of money to make the site mobile friendly to make that happen, as far as I know.

  90. Hi Kalyn, I've been following your blog for quite a while and love all your recipes! I think my (and my kids') favorite is your Mexican Baked Eggs. This is my quick "go-to" recipe when I can't think of anything to fix for dinner during the week.

    I eat a lot of salads, usually thrown together with whatever we have in the fridge, but I like homemade dressings. Do you have a section that I can just view all your salad dressings? I always like to try new dressings, but don't know which salad recipes to look through to find them.

    Thanks for all your fabulous recipes and the hard work you put into this blog!

  91. Sorry I somehow missed this comment earlier. I don't have too many salad dressing recipes posted separately from the salads I made with them, but you can find the ones I do have by entering "salad dressing" into the search bar.

  92. Re your baked cheesy cauliflower tots....it is never recommended to microwave anything which is covered by cling wrap as you say to do with the cut up cauliflower. I know you are all for healthy! This is not! Thank you! Love your site.

  93. Janet, this is one of the many things that people have different opinions about. I used a crockery bowl (not plastic) and personally I don't believe it's harmful.

  96. Hi Kalyn... I want to make your sausage and fresh tomatoes marinara sauce recipe but it does not say what size cans for tomato sauce and tomatoes. It looks wonderful and I cannot wait to try it. Can you help me please? Thanks in advance. Tuesday :)

  97. Love your site, do wish that you could post the nutritional breakdown I.e. grams of fat, etc. I'm doing weight watchers and this would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  98. Tuesday, the cans are 14.5 oz size.

    Bob, I don't think I will ever start doing that, as I have over 2,000 recipes and once I do it on newer ones people will expect it on every recipe. I already work hours and hours and hours on every post, so I think if you need that you will have to calculate it yourself. If you look under FAQ there is a link to a site I recommend.

  105. I am not here to infringe on you and your blog. I have made your recipe and tweeked it. Very good. I thought I linked you from it. I wish you would have emailed me. My blog is for me and my friends to read. I use it as a reference and I make no money at all. I do not even have ads on it. I wish you could of been friendly and emailed me.

    1. Tiffany, I am afraid I have no idea what you're referring to. That's because every time I run a report I find hundreds of people copying my recipes and photos in a way that violates my contract. Google penalizes me when so many people copy my stuff, and with so many instances of it happening there is no way I can write personally to each person and discuss it with them.

      And you could have written directly to me as well if you really wanted to discuss it.

Thanks for joining the conversation! I love hearing from readers and even though I can't always reply to every comment, I will always answer specific questions on a recipe as soon as possible. Sometimes I'm answering by iPhone, so my replies may be short!

Comments don't appear on the blog until they're approved by me, so no need to try again if you don't see it! Feel free make your signature a link to your site if you're a blogger, but links posted within the body of the comment will never be published.
