I’ve been sharing my recipes for over 15 years because I believe everyone should have access to techniques to make them better cooks. My process to develop one recipe takes days (or sometimes weeks) of research and testing. Then I’ll spend another week documenting the techniques and steps through words, photos, and video. It’s a labor of love for me, but a lot of time and money goes into producing this content. If you value what I do, here are all the ways you can help:
I know not everyone is in a place to contribute financially, but here are other ways you can help.
- By sharing recipes with friends via social media, leaving comments, and rating them, you send signals to search engines that the content is good, and they will show the recipe to more people.
- For videos, watching them from start to finish is the best way you can tell YouTube that you like the video. Of course, likes, comments, and shares also help!
- I read all of my comments, and positive vibes are always welcome! Food blogging is a solitary endeavor, and it’s nice to hear from you, even if it’s just a quick “hello😀.”
Secret Recipe Stash
I share a more intimate look into my kitchen with my secret stash of recipes. These are meals that I cook for my family and most of them are easy original dishes I’ve come up with based on what I have on hand. You can access the stash by signing up as a patron on Patreon at the “Line Cook” level or above. By contributing, you also help cover the production costs for the recipes I share publicly. You’ll also get access to a private community where you can ask questions and share your kitchen successes (or failures).
If you don’t want to contribute on an ongoing basis, here are some methods to send a one-time contribution:

My Tableware Collection
Many of the plates and flatware I use in my recent recipes are from Musubi Kiln. They have an amazing selection of both traditional and modern Japanese tableware and I’ve curated a collection of my favorite tableware you can check out using the link below. Also, you can use coupon code “NORECIPES” to get 5% off your order.
If you shop on Amazon, you can help me out (at no extra cost to you), by using the link below. Amazon gives me a small percentage of each sale made through my link, but it doesn’t change what you pay. The link will take you to my shop, which has the equipment and ingredients I use, but you can also use the search bar at the top to find anything on Amazon.
