A Gentle Reminder

I post my recipes on the internet for all to use. But if you copy my text and/or pictures and repost them to your facebook page or blog, please have the courtesy to acknowledge SamoaFood.com as your source. It's only fair, don't you think?

  1. Agreed. I will faithfully do so if I ever re-post, etc. I love your blog! I am palagi and my husband is Samoan. I love making his native foods and exploring all the yumminess :)
    Thank You!

    1. Thanks for your comment Charity. I always feel a little nervous about my recipes with those of you that are married to Samoans, because I know your spouses will be vocal if the food isn't the same as what they grew up with. So bit of pressure there to get things right, but it only makes for a better blog. All the best with your cooking!

  2. I have missed your blog!!! Totally agree with you. I wasn't sure who to ask about where your blog had gone or how to get an invite to read your blog. Hope you have a great year and really looking forward to trying out more of your recipes : )

    1. Thanks ReaderWriter. It just gets tiresome trying to chase individuals up about it, so thought I'd state it explicitly and hope people use their common sense. Thanks for the support and you have a great year too!

    1. Hey Lani, rumour has it that you are a fantastic baker...how you manage to write your books and raise all your kids and blog and travel all over the show, I'll never know! Now, head down, tail up, and get that new book out before crazed Daniel fans start camping outside your house.
