Can I use your recipes and photos on my blog, website or magazine?
RECIPES – No. I do not allow republication of my written content, post, recipe or instructions without prior consent. If you copy and paste any of my written content it is a copyright infringement and will negatively affect how Google ranks both our pages. Please contact me directly if you would like to use a recipe or written content. I am having to get tough on this one as so many websites are copying my work and even selling it for profit.
PHOTOS – Yes, great stuff, thanks for sharing BUT I only give permission if you CREDIT the source of my photos. You must include a link back to the recipe the photo came from AND a link to ditchthecarbs.com An example might look like this “Check out the most amazing low carb chocolate cake from Ditch The Carbs. They have a great selection of low carb, gluten-free, grain-free and no added sugar recipes for the whole family” (OK so you don’t have to be quite that glowing, although it would be nice, you get the idea).
And by all means, share, share, share on Facebook or Pinterest using my links or sharing my recipe’s URL. I work darn hard on this website and would love it for more people to hear about DTC from the correct source 🙂 I report pages that cut and paste my recipes onto Facebook without linking back to me (you know who you are ).

Yes I had so many comments that reader's cakes weren't cooking properly so I went back and tested and tested again and came to the conclusion that my original cooking time must have been too short or my oven had accidentally been too high. Hopefully you should get a great result now.
That's fantastic you are planning to go low carb and discuss it with your doctor. If you are on any medication, it may need to be reviewed as health improves. Take a look at this page where I show you the low carb essentials to get started. You've got a greta list there, maybe add in some more red meat, berries, coconut cream, baking ingredients etc. Let's get you started and well done Patricia, Libby.
I measure ingredients mainly by weight as there is too much confusion between US and UK cups, and the fact that cups are just too inaccurate. Most people now use electric scales. If in doubt, take a look at my cooking conversion charts too.
