Please do not duplicate my written content in any way.  I work very hard and spend countless hours writing for my blog and developing recipes, and researching information for posts.  I don’t charge for this, so please be respectful of my work.  Duplicating content isn’t just wrong, it’s bad for business.  It hurts our Google rankings because it will be indexed as duplicate and repeat content.  If you would like to share something from Real Food Girl: Unmodified, please rewrite it in your own words, summarize, or paraphrase and link to the text on my site rather than cutting and pasting.  If your unsure, email me beforehand.

KaceyCooks:   Some of my earlier photos are watermarked with the name KaceyCooks.  KaceyCooks was the original  name of my food blog.  When I started making decisions about my brand and what that would entail, it became clear that my nickname would have to be tabled and I’d use my given first name.  All photos (and posts) with this watermark are copyrighted and are my property.  The same rules that apply to all photos watermarked with Real Food Girl: Unmodified apply to KaceyCooks photos as well.
