Cook the Story


There is nothing I like more than getting an email from a reader (except maybe diving into a wheel of melty Brie). So please write to me (or send me pictures of cheese) at:

And be sure to stay up to date with all Cook the Story happenings by following me in the social media world:

If you have a food-writing, recipe development, brand sponsorship or speaking opportunity you would like to discuss with me or if you are with the media and have questions about food or blogging, contact me by email.

If you would like to use one of my recipes in print or on-line you must re-write the recipe in your own words. Once you do so, I still would like you to credit my original recipe and provide a link to the original recipe. Developing recipes takes a lot of time, money and thought. I would appreciate credit for all the work and resources I’ve put in.

You may not use any of my photographs without written permission. Please email me with your request.

Note, however, that this blog is Pinterest-Friendly. In fact, I sometimes put “Images for sharing” at the bottom of my posts. These usually have the name of the recipe and my website written into the image to help promote and to help protect my work. Feel free to pin any images that you find pin-worthy. But when you do so, please consider making your caption to the photo searchable. For instance, if pinning a picture of my Bread Salad Recipe, instead of commenting with “Delicious!” comment with “Bread Salad. What a delicious side dish idea!” This will make your pins and my recipes easier for others to find.

    RE: First on Google


    We can fairly quickly promote your website to the top of the search rankings with on long term contracts!

    We can place your website on top of the Natural Listings on Google, Yahoo and MSN. Our Search Engine Optimization team delivers more top rankings then anyone else and we can prove it. We do not use “link farms” or “black hat” methods that Google and the other search engines frown upon and can use to de-list or ban your site. The techniques are proprietary, involving some valuable closely held trade secrets.

    Our prices are less then half of what other companies charge.
    We would be happy to send you a proposal using the top search phrases for your area of expertise. Please contact me at your convenience so we can start saving you some money.

    In order for us to respond to your request for information, please include your company’s website address (mandatory) and /or phone number.
