  1. Been reading your blog for a while and have a question for you. I have a foraging cookbook coming out in September. The focus is on ingredients available across the country, not region specific, and on modern recipes (not salads and casseroles). Anyway, I was given a few Advanced Review Copies. Is that something you would be interested in doing a giveaway for? ~Rob AT connoley DOT com

    1. Hi Rob.
      Much as I would like to, i really don't have a large following. I think you would do better with someone else doing the giveaway.

      Do you have a blog though? I'll follow you. And what's the name of the book?

  2. I feel this is a stupid question, but I can't figure out where to subscribe!! Love this site and I would love to advertise here for my store and I am writing an article that I would love to share your blog in and quote a few things, would you mind getting back to me? info@fountainalleydotcom

    1. Hi!

      I've sent the email you requested. As for following, there are 2 ways you can do it: by email or by adding me to your Google reading list.

      If you choose to follow me via email, you should know that I will never email you directly--in fact, I don't even get your email from the follow service--all that will happen is that you will receive an automated email when I share new content.

      To follow via email, scroll down on the right navigation zone, until you see "follow by email", then enter your email address and submit.

      To follow via your Google reading list, you will need to go to "blogger.com" and log in with an email address. Look to the left-navigation zone and see "reading list" , click that.

      On the right side of the page , you will see a pencil icon. Click it and then click the orange "add" button. In the window that pops up, enter "foragedfoodie.blogspot.com" and then "next". It will give you the option to follow publicly or anonymously. I would appreciate if you follow publicly, but if you choose to remain anonymous, I understand too.
