Am I giving up any rights to my photos by submitting them to Dessertstalker?
So how do I get my photo published?
Register. Read the submission guidelines detailed on the ”SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES“ page. Take a good picture. Post about it or your website or blog. Log in to Chowstalker and submit the picture and a link to the related post via the “SHARE YOUR TREATS” page. As soon as we review your submission you will get an email letting you know if it was published or not.
And how long will that take?
In most cases, it will be published within 24 hours. But if you submit more than one recipe, we will spread them out to maximize your time on the front page.
If I am registered on Chowstalker do I still need to register on DessertStalker?
Yes, the user databases are independent of each other.
So what kind of desserts and treats can I find here?
The kind using lots of coconut, chocolate, fruits and nuts.
The kind that’s free of gluten, red dye #40 and artificial sweeteners.
If it can be made with “paleo-friendly” ingredients, then we’ll publish it, with one exception…no cupcakes.
Why not cupcakes?
When we were brain-storming about Chowstalker, I told Ron I wanted the site to be full of nourishing foods, not full of cupcakes like those other recipe sharing sites. And he replied, “Right, because we don’t do cupcakes!” So even though it’s become somewhat of a joke (we do muffins and we do mini-cakes), it’s our tag-line and by golly, we’re sticking with it!
What is a Paleo Diet?
There really isn’t a single version of a paleo diet. It can be low-carb, but isn’t necessarily so. It can even be vegetarian, but that’s more of the exception than the rule. In general, those following a paleo diet avoid the consumption of toxins found in many modern day foods by focusing more on meals from pastured meats, eggs, wild caught seafood, organically raised vegetables and fruits. Nuts, white rice and dairy are also part of the diet for some. If you are new to paleo, and have questions, we’ll be happy to try and answer them. Or you can check out some of the great websites and books listed on our resource page.
