Here are the questions I am asked most frequently about my blog! If you have a question for me that isn’t answered here, feel free to contact me.
Can I use your images?
Yes! You have full permission to use my images but you must give me full credit with my name and a link to my website, kierstenhickman.com. If the image is coming from a specific blog post, I prefer that you link that image to the post/recipe.
Can I publish your recipes?
I would prefer that a reader come to my website to read the recipe card I developed. Please do not share recipe details on your own site. However, if you would like to use the image from the recipe and link out to the recipe blog post, you are more than welcome to do so.
Are all of these recipes yours?
Yes! All the recipes published on my site are original recipes I developed. If the recipe was based on a recipe that has been previously developed—either from a book or a website—I always give credit for any original inspiration that recipe came from.
Why do you not write about your husband?
Early on in my blogging journey, my husband and I made the decision to keep our personal life separate from this website. While I love to write about my life online, my husband is not as comfortable as I am sharing online, and I fully support and respect his decision. You will notice I do mention him every now and then, but we keep our personal things personal for now.
What is your job?
At the moment, I work as a Senior Editor at Eat This, Not That! I mainly focus on our website, EatThis.com, where I write articles, work with freelance writers, develop recipes, make videos, and much more. You can view some of my recipe work here, as well as my written work here.
I’m new to cooking! What do I need?
I highly recommend stocking up on these kitchen essentials to get started! They are the few things I constantly turn to when I cook in the kitchen. I admit, my all-time favorite things to use include my cast-iron skillet, my dutch oven for baking sourdough bread, and my sheet pan set.
Do you do brand collaborations?
I haven’t worked on a ton of brand collaborations in the past, but I’m always open for new opportunities! Here is an example of a collaboration I worked on with Imperfect Foods. If you’re interested in working with me on a company campaign for this blog specifically, you can contact me here. I would love to work with you!
How do you calculate calories?
Most of my recipes will have a calorie count per serving, which are all estimations based on the ingredients within the recipe. I like to calculate all of my recipes through a calculator on Lose It! where I log all of my recipes and can easily divide the nutritional information up by serving.
