A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.
First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting.

For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at https://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site. In the event you opt-out, you will still see non-personalized advertisements on the Website.
The Website collects the following data using a cookie when serving personalized ads:

This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website.

Let’s all just be nice to each other, okay? Really, the online world can be such a harsh place, as it is one where anonymity can sometimes cause people to behave in ways they might not behave in person.
If you leave a comment that is hurtful, condescending, or just plain rude, it will be deleted.
This should be a community where we encourage and uplift one another, not tear down and criticize one another. We are all in this together.
Let’s show grace to one another and be intentional about expressing our opinions and ideas respectfully.
The purpose of Margin Making Mom is to help you find margin in your life, whether in finances, personal life, your family, your home, or your kitchen. I hope to show you ways to simplify these aspects of your life and bring value to you in doing so. My number one priority is to maintain high standards of integrity as I deliver quality content to you in an accurate and fair way.
The Federal Trade Commission has issued guidelines in order to protect the public from intentionally errant or misleading advertising that has been paid for by a group or company. This blog is a source of income and may incorporate affiliate links, endorsements, sponsored posts, or testimonials at times. However, I will only choose to promote products, businesses, or services that I truly feel will be beneficial to my readers and that I would recommend to my best friend.
I will always give my honest opinion, whether or not I am receiving compensation to do so. I do not want to compromise my integrity or fairness to my readers in order to simply make a quick buck. My readers are very important to me and I want you to know that you can trust that I am striving to have your best interests in mind and seeking to do my best to be honest and forthright in every post.
I have a number of costs associated with running a blog of this size — server space, technical tools, and more. To offset this, I use affiliate links in posts when they are available.
Mentions of associated products/services/businesses within the content of my blog may or may not be noted as an affiliate in every reference.

A Note on Citation and My Sources
My goal with Margin Making Mom is to share the recipes that our family has enjoyed and the recipes that have simplified my time in the kitchen. I’m just a regular mom who wants to make easy and tasty food for her family. My hope is that you and your family can enjoy these recipes as well!
Many of the recipes on this site are inspired by, adapted from, or a derivative of other recipes. This is how cooking has always been–building off of the basics and adjusting to suit one’s own needs.

Because I wholeheartedly believe in giving credit where credit is due, I make it a point to list my sources on each recipe post when applicable.
