Welcome to cooking, a community for anyone who likes to cook! Feel free to post all things culinary here; recipes, cooking advice and tips, questions, suggestions, etc. Please take the time to read the guidelines below before posting.
2. Try to use subject lines when posting to the community. This makes it easier for people trying to look for specific recipes in the page summary and when looking through posts by specific months. Along the same lines, try to tag your entries as thoroughly as possible!
3. Use an LJ-cut if you are posting an exceptionally lengthy recipe/article and if you are posting more than one image (one image may be posted outside of an LJ-cut). Not everyone has fast internet.
4. Do not post off-topic posts to this community. All posts must pertain to cooking and/or food and posts that do not follow this rule will be deleted.
5. When posting recipes to this community:
Please use attributions; if the recipe is someone else's or you've modified someone else's recipe, please say so.
Please don't post about a recipe and then link to it without also posting the recipe in the same post. This community is here to share those recipes and pictures and we'd like to archive them here, too. Posting outside links only does not preserve that information.
6. Do not advertise without a moderator's permission, do not spam this community and don't post self-serving posts. A self-serving post includes asking for votes in a contest or contributions to a project outside of the community. As mentioned before, you are allowed to include a link to your personal cooking blog (if the post meets the criteria listed above) but posts may be rejected at the moderators' discretion if we feel you may profit from the linked content in any way.
5. Be respectful. Rude, disrespectful, or inflammatory posts and/or comments will be removed. Please do not use inappropriate icons in your posts; "inappropriate" includes gratuitous nudity, pornography, profanity, or which include materials that refer positively to activities which are illegal. In addition, please avoid using icons which have religious or political content which you suspect will probably be offensive to others. Persons who violate this rule more than once will be banned from posting and commenting in this community. If there is a problem, do not delete or disable comments! Contact the mods here and the issue will be addressed.
6. Please do not post about the Neiman-Marcus Cookie urban myth or the Waldorf-Astoria Red Velvet Cake urban myth as they are both false.
