Contribute to my Magazine

Are you a food blogger? Do you want to contribute recipes to my magazine?

I am always looking for new baked goods recipes to share with my readers that have:

  1. Visually attractive photos… because you eat with your eyes first. The more photos, the better. My readers like pictures showing recipe techniques, not just the finished product.
  2. The recipe must be yours. You can adapt from others but you must change the ingredients and the instructions must be written in your own words. For more information please read this article on recipe attribution.
  3. Tell us a story and share a little background about the recipe… why you like it, where you found it, and especially tips for success.

I’m interested in the following types of recipes, from beginner/basic to advanced:

  1. Cakes & cupcakes
  2. Cookies & bars
  3. Pies, tarts & pastry
  4. Muffins, scones & quick breads
  5. Cheesecake
  6. Doughnuts
  7. Desserts, including chocolate
  8. Breakfast, including pancakes, crêpes & smoothies
  9. Yeast bread, sourdough and rolls

I provide full attribution to you and links back to your blog.

If this sounds like you, then please email me, including the links to 3-4 of your favorite recipes, to: info[at]TheConfidentBaker[dot]com for possible inclusion in an upcoming issue.
