The Food: The recipes I share on this blog are a compilation of family, friends’, and personal creations as well as recipes that I have collected while perusing cookbooks and the internet. I will never post a recipe just to post a recipe. If I post a recipe that means I have made it for myself and believe that it is a “must have” recipe. I want the Golden Nugget Gourmet to be a blog that you can rely on for absolutely solid recipes and don’t have to question whether or not the recipe is going to be a crowd pleaser. I want you to feel absolutely confident that a recipe posted by The Golden Nugget Gourmet is an absolute safe bet to make for the first time and serve to company.
The Pics: Unfortunately, I have found that just because it looks good doesn’t mean it tastes good. Have you ever found a recipe online and the picture looked delightful but your final product was a disaster? The Golden Nugget Gourmet is about the food first and getting a great shot second. I am lucky that my husband is a fabulous photographer (www.ScottRobertsPhoto.com) but he has a full-time job and isn’t always home when “the lighting” is good. If you see a great picture it is more than likely a weekend shot. There may be times that I put up a recipe without a picture because the recipe is too good to wait. I hope that The Golden Nugget Gourmet will become your trusted go to food blog with recipes that are enticing with or without a picture.
Compensation: I am a stay-at-home Mom that would love to get paid for doing something that I love to do. Will I accept freebies? Absolutely! But, I will never endorse a product or business in a post or in the Shopping Cart just because I received some type of compensation from them. If I endorse a product or business on The Golden Nugget Gourmet it is because I truly love it and consider it a golden nugget and want to share it with you.
