What happens after I submit my recipe?
Our editorial team reviews each reader recipe before we publish them on the site. When we've published your recipe, you'll receive an e-mail saying "Congratulations! Your recipe has been approved" and the link to your recipe will be provided.
Recipe rejection guidelines
If we have to reject a recipe, you'll receive an e-mail saying "Your recipe almost made it…" We reject recipes based on the following criteria:
- Copyrighted recipe
- Too many errors in the text
- Recipe already on the site
- Preparation method not precise enough
- Not a recipe
- Ingredients not precise enough
- Missing information in the preparation method
- Cooking temperature not specified
- Recipe text must not be in capital letters
- Recipe title not comprehensible
Double-check your recipe before submitting to make sure it doesn't contain any of these errors!
