Affiliate Policy

I consider myself a full-time blogger and Culinary Hill my company.  I try to provide excellent content that I think you, my reader, will find valuable and interesting.

To help make ends meet in the real world, I sometimes accept compensation in the form of advertising, sponsored posts, and affiliate links.  I truly don’t think this is a detriment to my blog; I think it spurs me on to bring my A-Game and continue to deliver the best possible recipes and information.

But, I want to tell you a little bit more about how it works so you understand what’s going on and where I’m coming from.  Here is an overview of advertising, sponsored posts, and affiliate links.


The ads on Culinary Hill are provided by AdThrive and GourmetAds.  Through the process of serving ads, cookies are used to collect information.  If you’d like to learn more about the information collected, or opt-out of cookies entirely, please take a look at my Privacy Policy.

Sponsored Posts

Occasionally I have the opportunity to work with a brand.  I like the idea of creating a recipe based on a specific product, and I will always be honest about my feelings and experiences.  Sometimes these opportunities will also result in a giveaway for my readers.  I will always disclose when I am being compensated by a brand, and the brand will always be a fit with Culinary Hill.  I absolutely do not accept product in exchange for a review.  Opinions are always my own.

Affiliate Programs

Culinary Hill is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to

An affiliate program is a relationship with a company that allows me to receive a commission on sales I refer from Culinary Hill.  For example, I have an affiliate account with Amazon.  If you click on a link in any of my posts and make a purchase, I may receive a small commission on that sale.  Note: Your price remains the same; it is not higher.

I am always delighted when a referral to Amazon results in a commission, but your participation is entirely voluntary.  If you don’t want to participate in the affiliate program, once you know the name of the product, you can open a new browser window for Amazon and just search for it directly.  No problem!
