Thanks so much for all your questions via emails, comments, and social media! We love connecting with our readers. Listed below are some of the most frequently asked questions here at Two Raspberries!
WHERE DO YOU GET THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR RECIPES?
- friends and family
- grocery shopping
- seasonal produce
- other blogs
- my constantly changing food cravings
our typical process for making recipes often looks something like this:
- walking through the grocery store hungry! Or see an idea online…
- Look at the ingredient list or research parts of recipes like pizza crust from scratch or simple peanut butter cookie… modify change swap out for healthier options try different combinations
- Make the recipe on my own, writing down my own notes as I go to find what works and is delicious and what tastes terrible! Lol
CAN I USE YOUR PHOTO OR RECIPE ON MY WEBSITE OR BLOG?
Thanks for asking!
- Recipes –yes! Please include two links: one to the blog post and one to the home page. Here’s an example: This recipe for (recipe name and link here) is from Two Raspberries (link that to our site) .

WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND IN FOOD?
I have no formal culinary training. We are just a couple from Minnesota who like to cook, eat, and share feel-good food.
I DID NOT LIKE THE RECIPE AT ALL!
That’s ok 😉 everyone has different taste buds, I encourage people to taste recipes as they make them and make any alterations that suit you and your taste buds and please share them with us in the comments! Like I mentioned above I have no formal training or schooling, I encourage creativity in the kitchen! I aim to inspire you to take what I have made and make it your own! I rarely ever follow a recipe I find to the exact ingredients/instructions because I like to experiment and I don’t like rules! SO BE INSPIRED AND BE CREATIVE! and if you still don’t like it then the recipe just wasn’t meant for you! 😉
WHY DIDN’T YOUR RECIPE WORK FOR ME?
I’m not sure, but I would love to help you figure out what went wrong! You can either fill out a Contact form or you can place a comment under a recipe so the discussion can help benefit others as well. Sometimes a recipe might have a typo or not enough description or might just be worded silly and might need clarification so if you run into trouble with a recipe let us know!
HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU MAKE EACH RECIPE?
That depends! Sometimes I get lucky and it turns out amazing the first try and others might take many attempts to get the flavors or combinations to turn out tasting delicious!
WHAT DO YOU DO WITH ALL YOUR FOOD?
We eat A LOT of leftovers. And it’s not too hard to find good homes for the desserts – usually our family, friends, are willing to help out with that!

Are you 100% Vegan?
No, I am 100% vegetarian and have been for almost 10 years but vegan is about 95% of the time … if I said 100% it would not be truthful because there is one kind of chocolate that I have not been able to let go yet as well as faux chicken nuggets that I believe have egg whites in them… if not for a couple things I haven’t been able to give up yet then I would be 100% but I am not quite there yet!
some of you may know that this blog actually started as vegetarian and transitioned into vegan for 2 reasons, 1 because I wanted to be vegan anyways and 2 because of health reasons I needed to give up dairy and gluten so from summer of 2015 you will see all vegan recipes and mostly all GF too!
