I’m no longer receiving your emails, what can I do?
From time to time different internet service providers go down right as I send an email and it is returned as undeliverable. When this happens twice, my email program puts those email addresses on an inactive list. The solution is simple, though, just go to https://www.southernplate.com/subscribe/ and subscribe again to get your emails coming again :).
If this isn’t the problem, please check your spam/junk folder and make sure email@example.com and is an approved address.
How do I get your book?
My cookbook, Southern Plate: Classic Comfort Food That Makes Everyone Feel Like Family, is available in all major bookstores and online retailers now! My book features over 150 time honored family recipes, as well as the story behind them. Some very special stories from my heart and home to yours are featured as well. I know you’ll also enjoy the beautiful photos of food and family!
I write a blog and want to feature one of your recipes, how do I go about doing that legally?
Thank you so much, what an honor for me! Due to the Digital Media Copyright Act of 1998, there are certain regulations about reproducing digital content from the internet. I’d love for you to link to me but doing it properly ensures that both your blog and mine don’t suffer any ill repercussions.
If you would like to show one of my recipes on your blog, your own pictures and insights on the recipe can certainly be used, as well as brief quotes from my post, but please link to SouthernPlate.com for the full recipe rather than put it on your blog. This is much better for you and me in the long haul.
Do you have a recipe for ______________?
There are about two thousand recipes on SouthernPlate.com right now so chances are pretty good I do! Please use the search box in the top right of the page or browse through the index.
I love your recipes! Do I have to print out all of the pictures to get them, though?
Thank you! I love you reading my recipes! I’ve recently added a feature that makes each recipe print friendly, just click the “print this” button at the bottom. Please note: I have had to go back and hand code every single post in order to make it print friendly. With over five hundred posts, I missed a few. Your patience is greatly appreciated if you happen upon one of these. Feel free to copy and paste it in a word program in order to print or simply write down the recipe by hand until I can get to it.
I want to start a blog. Can I email you with questions and ask for advice?
I get a lot of these emails and would dearly love to answer each one, but due to the volume of emails and my current workload am unable. If time permits in the future I’d love to do a blog post with all of this helpful information included. Thank you for asking but please understand that I’m working ten hour days and am still a full time mom. When I go to bed at night, I dream of having staff 🙂
I’m looking for a particular recipe that you emailed a few weeks ago, can you email it to me again?
Due to the size of my subscriber list, I can’t go back and sift through my past emails to find the email to send you again. As an alternative, though, please use the search feature on Southern Plate and retrieve the recipe directly from the website. You might want to also check your email trash folder as it is still there unless it has been emptied.
I’m no longer receiving emails from you. What can I do?
I’m so sorry, I know this is frustrating. 99% of the time when this happens it is due to your email service marking Southern Plate emails as spam or junk. Please check those folders in your email system first. If you are still not receiving emails, try subscribing again at SouthernPlate.com/Subscribe . Once you have tried both of these (please do try the first option because that is almost always the problem), if you are still having problems you can email media@Southernplate.com and we will help you as soon as we are able. Thank you for your understanding and for being a subscriber!
I’m going out of town, can you hold my emails?
I’m sorry, the email subscribership is automated and I am unable to go in and temporarily turn them off or resume them for one address.
I’m having problems viewing your website, what did you do to it?
Nothing, honest. As the stepsister in EverAfter said, “I’m just here for the food.” My tech saviness extends only to the realm of minor maintenance and posting to Southern Plate.
I really don’t have any bells and whistles beyond a plethora of photographs, which might cause the page to load slower on some computers. I do have a large pool of folks check my site periodically from various computers in addition to checking in with tech friends to make sure everything is still running normally and that Southern Plate doesn’t require anything out of the ordinary in order to be viewed.
If you continue to have problems, please check to make sure you are using the latest version of your internet browser. I highly recommend Mozilla Firefox as an internet browser and according to my site stats, over eighty percent of my readers use Firefox as their main browser. It is free and can be downloaded here.
If you are using Internet Explorer, you might want to try downloading Firefox as your browser. Internet Explorer is being phased out and even the creators are trying to get folks to stop using it due to it’s outdated nature. Most often, when folks are having trouble viewing Southern Plate, they are using Internet Explorer.
Do you ever post light or low carb recipes on your site?
Yes we sure do. In the search box on our homepage southernplate.com you can use the search box and put iin in ‘Low carb’ to find our delicious low carb options.
Where do all of your recipes come from?
Well Christy Jordan has a degree in Family and Consumer Sciences (Home Ec) and she loves to cook. Hers and my recipes come from our mothers, grandmothers, great grandmothers, their great grandmothers and so on.
I can’t find Self Rising/White Lily flour, what can I do?
Move to the south.
Kidding…well I mean that’s an option of course. If you can’t find White Lily, just get regular flour, it’ll be fine. If self rising is not available where you are, use this formula to make your own.
*To make your own self rising flour, simply add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt for EACH cup of all purpose flour.
Sift ingredients well to make sure it is uniform.
Do you accept advertising/offer reviews/want to try a product?
For information on any of these topics, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
What are your plans for Southern Plate?
I want to make the world a better place. It may sound like a cheesy pipe dream, but I happen to think we could use more people with cheesy pipe dreams, don’t you?
