You may use one unaltered photo of mine, as long as you give me proper credit and link back to my original blog post.
Maybe, maybe not. It really depends on the recipe and the particular ingredient. Leave your specific question in a comment on the recipe’s blog post if you’re really curious. (I don’t answer these questions via email!)
Again, I’m not sure; it really depends on the recipe. However, I never publish a recipe that didn’t turn out well for me, so it quite possibly could be due to the utensils, oven, or measuring techniques that you’re using. (If you need a refresher, check out my Baking Basics 101!) If you still aren’t sure, leave a comment on the particular blog post, and I’ll do my best to figure it out.
Many of my recipes contain a link titled “View Nutrition Information” just below the recipe box. It can be easy to miss, so check there first! Some of my older recipes do not contain that link, but here’s the Nutrition Calculator and Weight Watchers Calculator that I use.
In a nutshell, “clean eating” means minimizing the amount of processed and artificial ingredients and instead focusing on more wholesome options. Some of these choices include substituting whole wheat flour in place of all-purpose; honey, maple syrup, or agave in place of white or brown sugar; and coconut oil or good-quality unsalted butter in place of shortening or vegetable oil.
This is by no means a comprehensive list or set of guidelines, just a few good places to start!
Yes! But not in its entirety. For most recipes, I sample a serving or two before giving away the rest to my family, friends, and adorable neighbors.
I sure do! You’ll never see any recipes including avocados, mushrooms, or water chestnuts… To name a few!
For the first few months of blogging, I used a Cannon PowerShot SD870 IS (aka a point-and-shoot digital camera!). From November 2010 until December 2015, I took my photos with a Cannon EOS 60D. After that, I upgraded to a Canon EOS 70D for my photos and a Canon EOS 80D for videos. (They may not be the most recent and up-to-date Canon camera models, but they still work like a charm and I absolutely love them!)
Of course! I published an eBook called The Basics of Food Photography: Compositional Elements. I also have a page dedicated entirely to photography resources. Those are two great places to start!
You bet! I have a step-by-step guide about how to start a blog here, as well as an entire FAQ page dedicated to blogging here.
Yes! I first blogged under the name Foods for the Soul, but in March 2014, I decided that it no longer fit the direction in which I wanted my blog to go and changed the name to Amy’s Healthy Baking. (Hence why many of my photographs still have the Foods for the Soul watermark!) See here for more details.
Yes! Each blog post requires 5-10+ hours of testing (and dishes… if not more!), 1-3 hours of photographing, and 4-6 hours of writing, editing, and publishing. And most days, I love every minute of it! Here’s my video where I talk more about food blogging as a full-time job.
