From time to time, I receive cookbooks for the purpose of conducting a review of them. I welcome publishers to contact me if they have cookbooks for review. However, it should be noted that I do not post reviews of every cookbook I receive and, therefore, I offer no promise nor guarantee that sending me a cookbook will result in a review of it being published on my food blog nor that a positive review will follow in exchange for receiving a cookbook.

I do carefully scrutinize each book and will post some reviews of select cookbooks that I feel fit in with the theme and focus of my food blog and/or with my own personal interests in the culinary realm, and that I think would also be of interest to my readers.

For those cookbooks that I do choose to publish a review on, I will conduct an honest, forthright, and balanced review and reserve the right to publish my own personal opinions on them.
