Can I use your photo or recipe on my website/blog?
1. Recipes – no, not at this time. We do not allow republication of our post or recipe text without prior consent. If you have a specific inquiry about a recipe, please feel free to email us at hello(at)thecrookedcarrot(dot)com.
2. Photos without recipes – Sure! Thank you for sharing! Please just credit the photos with two links, one back to the recipe and one back to thecrookedcarrot.com
Do you use other people’s recipes on your blog?
Sharing meals and recipes is part of what makes cooking so great! So yes, we will occasionally use other’s recipes in our blog. If we do make a recipe that comes from someone else, we will always credit them in the author section. Sometimes recreating old classics just isn’t the way to go.
Why didn't your recipe work for me?
We wish we could answer this question. Honestly, it could be a number of things: altitude (for the most part we’re cooking over 5000 feet above sea level), measuring technique, how your oven bakes, human error. We test recipes multiple times and never publish anything that we wouldn’t be proud to serve to others. Feel free to email us and we’ll try to help you figure it out!
What kind of camera lenses do you use?
I shoot with a
AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.8 Tamron VC 90mm Macro 2.8
Why aren’t you vegetarian?
A plant-forward mindset with food will naturally lead to a largely vegetarian diet. But we still eat animal products for a number of reasons. Animals products provide key nutrients for the body, like vitamin B12, iron and protein. And we believe it's entirely possible to enjoy animal products in a way that is environmentally sustainable. The better the life of the animal, the better the quality of the food. It's that simple. We've found local farmers markets to be a great source for ethically-raised animal products.
But in the end, each person should explore this choice on their own and decide for themselves.
Why don't you include calorie information?
As a dietitian focusing on intuitive eating, I don’t want to encourage people to focus on calories. And instead I want to promote listening to your hunger/fullness cues, and honor your body and taste buds with real food. Focusing on calories promotes a diet mentality, and providing prominent calorie information is an easy path to thinking calories first.
Do you work with brands for sponsored posts and campaigns?
Yes we do! We are happy to promote brands and products who share our real food values and passion for sustainable practices. If you’re a brand looking for a partnership, fill out our contact form to get in touch!
