The purpose of Sweet Mother’s Kitchen is to help people find and share recipes that have been handed down in families from one generation to the next. Many of these types of recipes (soul food/comfort food/southern food/country food) have not been formally documented by written recipe. Here at Sweet Mother’s Kitchen, we are attempting to share in that process by encouraging the sharing of recipes, an act which requires documentation to achieve. It does take time to create all this content, so I do accept paid advertising, sponsorships, affiliate programs and other forms of compensation.
The Federal Trade Commission has rules for Disclosure Compliance for online media. These rules are set in place to ensure that readers or viewers of web media (blogs, YouTube videos, etc.) know if the blogger/presenter is sponsored, endorsed or partnered with a different company. In blog terms, the readers need to know if the blogger is making money by sharing a link, product, or service.
In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
- Any/all of the links on sweetmotherskitchen.com are affiliate links. This means that if you click on the link and buy certain items, I will receive a small commission. The price is the same for you, though and doesn’t cost you one penny more! Thank you for your support!
- If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I personally use, support and/or would recommend, even without an affiliate link.
- I may sometimes review items that are sent to me for free. All of my opinions regarding them are my own. I only endorse products that are in alignment with my ideals and that I believe would be of value to my readers.
- If a post is sponsored by a company, I will disclose that within the post. I am very picky about what I recommend, and that holds true for sponsored posts. If it’s not something I would use or recommend to my family, I won’t recommend it to you.
I am not an affiliate of any product or service that I do not trust for use in my businesses. If I don’t use it, I do not promote it. This is the only way I can ensure product quality, service and support levels, which are so important to those who trust my recommendations.
