For over 14 years, I’ve been posting recipes and cooking videos here because I believe everyone should have access to techniques to make them better cooks. I usually spend days (or sometimes weeks) researching a dish and its ingredients and developing and testing my version of it. Then I’ll spend another week documenting the techniques and steps through words, photos, and video. This is 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 some 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, leaving comments, and rating and liking recipes both here on and YouTube, you send signals to search engines that the content is good and they will show it to more people.
- If you start watching a video, please watch it till the end. Stopping part of the way through a video (even if you plan to watch the rest later) tells YouTube that you don’t like the video and it will be less likely to show it to others. Of course if you hate the video, you don’t have to watch it through.
- 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😀”.
The best way you can support my work financially is by becoming a member of No Recipes on Patreon. For as little as the cost of a cup of coffee each month, you can help cover my production costs, and there are different tiers that offer you benefits, such as a weekly recipe that is only available to Patrons, and access to an exclusive Discord community where you can share your kitchen successes and ask me questions. There’s even a tier that gets you and three friends dinner at my place once a year!
