FAQ and Copyright


This website and its contents are the copyright of Olga in the Kitchen. – © 2016-2022.  All rights reserved.

Olga in the Kitchen does not allow for its original pictures, recipes, or writing to be reproduced anywhere without written consent except for sharing on social media platforms and only if share (1) contains a link back to the appropriate page on olgainthekitchen.com and (2) does NOT contain recipe ingredients and/or instructions.

If you have an interest in posting one of my photos, text from my post or my recipes on another site, you must first obtain a written consent. However, we love being included in roundups, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you’re interested in using one of our recipes!

If my recipe inspired you to make your own version, please reference my recipe and provide a link to it in your post.

Here are certain ways you can share AFTER you contact me to get a written consent:

  • Recipes: Please include a clear link back to the original recipe and one to my home page. For example: This recipe for Easy No-Knead Bread is from OlgaintheKitchen.com. Also, please do not share full recipes (ingredient list and/or instructions) without putting them into your own words, otherwise search engines will punish both of our sites for duplicate content.
  • Photos: Please use only one (final) picture and not the step-by-step tutorial photos and do not add your own watermark to Olga in the Kitchen photos and claim as yours. Cropping off OlgaintheKitchen logo from photos is strictly prohibited. For example: This Easy No-Knead Bread is amazing. Check out Olga in the Kitchen for the full recipe. 

I made your recipe and it didn’t work. What went wrong?

I work very hard to develop my recipes and make every effort to share reliable recipes on my blog. I retest each recipe at least 4 times before sharing, even if I made it 100 times already. I provide very clear instructions, typically both in the recipe and post. It’s best to read both before beginning! However, sometimes things don’t work out as planned. Please let me know exactly what was unsatisfactory about your result. Oftentimes it is something we can troubleshoot through so you can have better success next time. Trial and error is how I learned, and hopefully you can learn that way too.

Is there an easier way to get your recipes?

Yes! In case you don’t want to keep checking back for new recipes, you can get my recipes by email. Whenever I post a new recipe, you’ll receive it in your inbox. And it’s completely FREE.

How did you start your blog? Do you have any tips for beginners?

See my About Page for more information about how I began my blog. Also, I have a post regarding the subject of food blogging.

Is blogging your full time job?

No! I am a part-time blogger, baker, photographer, and social media obsess-er.

What happens to all the food?

We never put food to waste! The number one thing I love about homemade goods is sharing the love with others! Every recipe I post on my website gets eaten at some point or another. If I’m retesting a recipe, very often I end up packing it into freezer. Many of my recipes are freezer-friendly.

Do you eat everything you bake?

Absolutely! I could never share a recipe with you that I personally did not try or enjoy now and then. If I say a recipe is super tasty, it is because I think it’s super tasty!

Can you include nutritional stats to your recipes?

Unfortunately not because I am not a nutritionist, registered dietitians or medical professional, therefore, I cannot provide nutritional advice, a diet or a health plan. Every now and then my posts will note if my recipe is healthy, sugar free, fat free, vegan, or gluten free, but I have no intention of posting calorie counts for my recipes.

However, feel free to plug my recipe into a calorie counting website. Here are few that you might find helpful:

What camera do you use?

Canon Digital SLR Camera Body [EOS 80D] and EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6

Nikon D3400 DSLR Camera 2 Lens Bundle

Can I guest post on your blog?

Unfortunately, no. I have been and will always be the only author on my blog.

Do you have another question I have not addressed?
