Photo Use Policy

Recipes found on are specifically created for this website. Cooking is my passion and recipes are my art! Each recipe takes countless HOURS and even longer to produce! The process of producing recipes involves testing, ingredients, photography (and equipment), editing software, and tons of time. Please respect my guidelines if you would like to share my recipes.

Round Ups

If you are a BLOGGER and you are creating a round up, I would love to be included! Please feel free to use a photo with a link and once published, let me know so I can share your roundup on Pinterest with my readers!  I’m sure you already know this but I kindly ask that you do not include ingredients/directions.

General Guidelines

If you would like to SHARE my recipes, I would love that!  Note that copying/pasting is not sharing. I do not permit copying and pasting entire recipes on ANY WEBSITE or social media, no exceptions. Please do not crop off my watermark or add text to my photos.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO post a photo on Facebook with a link leading directly to my recipe.  Please do not post full ingredients/directions on Facebook including on pages or in groups.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO use the “share” button on any page or on found on Spend With Pennies Facebook Page to share a link to any recipe. DO NOT copy and paste the ingredients and directions list onto the shared post.

Recreating Recipes

  • Create your own photograph.
  • You are welcome to use my list of ingredients exactly as they are written.
  • Please rewrite directions in your own words… your blog is about you… your readers want to hear you, not me!  Write them in your own words.
