I spend a lot of time on my recipes. About 95% of them are original recipes created by me. If there is any resemblance to another recipe somewhere, it is not intentional. If I redo a recipe or use another recipe for inspiration, I will say so in my post and give full credit where credit is due. I ask that you do the same.

Adapting a Sugar-Free Mom Recipe:

If you need to change more than 4 ingredients within my recipe you can consider that a true adaption. Proper credit to my recipe as your base is appropriate and appreciated.

* Please note: Changing less than 4 ingredients, like the flour or sugar choice is NOT adapting my recipe and cannot be considered your own. You can state the modifications you made from the original recipe with a direct link back to my recipe.

    Hey Brenda! I tried sending you an email at, but it said message was undeliverable. I would like to ask your permission for me to use your Baked Oatmeal Muffins for my blog. I am a personal trainer in Wilmington, NC and I would love to share this recipe with my clients and subscribers. I will be putting up a blog about why breakfast is so important and I would like to use this recipe in a follow-up post. I will absolutely give you and your blog credit and leave a link to your blog in my post. I think your recipes are wonderful!
    Just let me know if this is okay with you!
    Keep up the good recipes! Thank you for the consideration.

    I was just looking at recipes for applesauce tonight and came upon your blog! I am totally blown away! I was wanting to check out the Sugar Detox. It requires a password. Will you please explain to me how I can get a password. I am very overweight by about 100 pounds, am what you would call a yo-yo dieter. I am a diabetic with severe neuropathy in several areas of my body.
    I can see myself using several of your recipes, starting tomorrow morning with your Cinnamon Applesauce. It sounds delicious. Thank you for all your time and hard work putting this together for people like me!

    Dear Brenda,

    My Name is Cibele Randall, I am from Brazil living in Hawaii for over 7 years now. I am 36 year old and I have two kids ( 2 and 5 y.o). As many South Americans, I come from a culture of white flours and sugar ( specially sugar), but recently I’ve been thinking about change my life style and challenge myself with an audacious 30 day sugar free diet. Searching in the internet I came across with your website/blog ( sorry I am not good with those terms) , and I see a link for a sugar detox…I tried t click on it but seems to be protected by password or something… would you please give some more information about this sugar detox?
    I am planning to start my challenge in the begging of the following month, to be more specific Monday May 05, 2014.

    I appreciate your time replying to me in advance.

    Much Aloha,
    Cibele Randall
