Why our site is ad-free

Ad-free recipes! Let’s go!

A large reason we started happyfeetsandpaws.com was out of pure frustration. I don’t know how many times I’ve been in the kitchen reading a recipe off my phone and been interrupted by annoying ads! I kept thinking, I wish there was an ad-free recipe website that had clear videos, jumped straight to the recipe, and just gave me what I needed to know.

Then I realized it. How expensive and difficult can it really be to start an ad-free recipe website?

Answer: It’s not.

How often do you upload new recipes?

Every week we upload a new ad-free recipe. Sometimes we get a little behind on uploading to the website because of life. But on youtube, we are more consistent in uploading new recipes. So, feel free to check out the youtube channel to see a new recipe every week.

How do you guys make money?

The simple answer is we do not currently. If you calculate the costs of cameras, computers, servers, etc. We are clearly in the hole. But it keeps us busy and we enjoy doing it.

How will you make money?

We have no clue. We have yet to figure this one out.

We may in the future put up a store to offer some items to help you cook better. But nothing is in the works right now.

Will you ever show ads?

No. That’s our promise to you. Even our links out to ingredients etc are not paid for. It’s us just trying to help you find an ingredient that may be hard to track down. If you feel like an ad is on our site let us know and we will remove it immediately. We hope you enjoy our ad free recipe website.

Do you sell my information?

No. The only tracking technology we use is Google Analytics. We really only use it to see how the site is performing and what recipes are most popular. Mainly so we know how our site is working, what recipes everyone likes, and how we can best deliver information to you.

Can I help?

Sure! Do you have an epic recipe you want us to make? Send it to us! We love recipe suggestions. We don’t currently allow users to directly upload recipes to our site. We’re not looking for volume on our recipes. We just want a small list of curated recipes we have made/tested.

The most important way you can help us. Share our site! Tell your friends and family about us.

Can I donate?

At this time we don’t have a method to accept donations. If times get tough we might offer an opportunity to donate to keep the site alive. But currently, we are good. Another way you can support us is by subscribing to our youtube.

Can I upload my recipes to your site?

Unfortunately no. We are not looking to be the largest recipe website. Our focus is recipes we have made, enjoyed, tested, and confirmed to be good. Too many times I have made a recipe from a large website only to have it taste bad. Then after reading comments way down at the bottom of the site learned it was a terrible recipe that internet trolls have given 5 stars to screw with people online.

That’s our difference. If a recipe is bad we won’t upload it. Trust me it happens. We try something out and it just tastes terrible. Sometimes we make a recipe 2-3 times before we get it right. Sometimes after a couple of tries we just abandon the recipe and move on.

So rest assured, our recipes are good. We wouldn’t eat them if they were not.

However, you can send us your recipe and we will try it. If it’s good we will upload it!

Thank you for coming to our site. We appreciate it.
