About the Recipes

Inspired Taste is a food blog completely devoted to home cooking, easy recipesrecipe videos and inspiration for what to cook. Recipes found on this blog have been created in our own kitchen. If a cookbook, blog or magazine has inspired us, we try to attribute back to the original source. We share food that we love.

You’ll find a variety of recipes shared on Inspired Taste, but they all connect by following our firm belief that food at home should be simple, fresh and most importantly, fun.

We like bright colors and flavors. We love real butter, cream and eggs. We crave crunchy vegetables, while loving meats, cheese and seafood all at the same time.

About Comments and Reviews

You’ll notice that comments and the ability to review recipes are open to all recipes we post. We’re completely in love with your comments and have found reviews to be a fantastic way to learn your experiences when making our recipes in your own kitchen. We try very hard to create recipes that will work for you, but on occasion, things don’t turn out as well as we’d expect. So, when that happens, the Comment/Review system in place alerts us to a problem with recipes.

Since recipes are the core of our site, if, after feedback from you, we feel we can retest, adapt or improve a recipe, we will.

One note, Inspired Taste is dedicated to the home cook. We’re focused on the food and how it will taste when you make it. So, when commenting, please be courteous and keep in mind that all comments are moderated.

Constructive criticism is welcome (as stated above), however, rude or obnoxious comments will not be tolerated and will be deleted. This is your space, too. So, as a reader, if you feel a comment from another user is inappropriate, please let us know and we will deal with it.

Advertising

Inspired Taste is our business. For the two of us to support each other as well as the running of this site, we run advertisements. We do allow third party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our web site.  These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g. click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you.  These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information.  To learn more about this behavioural advertising practice visit the NAI at http://www.networkadvertising.org.  To opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices.

Your Privacy

You are certainly not “data” to us-instead you are friends and people who make us very happy. Your privacy is no joke. When you comment on one of our blog posts or enter into one of our giveaways, you will be asked for an email address. The main purpose for this is so we know you’re a real person and not a spammer, and so we can personally reach out to you with answers to questions or if you’ve won one of our giveaways. That email address will be hidden once the comment or giveaway entry form is submitted.

Keep in mind however, if you write personal info like your full name or your email address in the body of your comment (or in the “Name” or “URL” field) that info can be viewed by anyone and all reading the comment section of that post. So keep it informal and just use your first name, keep your email address out of the comment itself and you will be fine. By contrast, your email address, as entered in the “E-mail” section of the comment form, will remain completely hidden from view and will never be shared.
