Terms of Use

We reserve the right, at any time, to change or discontinue any content or feature of the Site or any services or products made available through the Site without notice.



We welcome you to visit the site and blog and to participate in the Comments, which are monitored by our staff. Please help us to maintain a friendly, safe and informative environment.

Monitoring and Removal of Content

We have the right, but not the obligation, to monitor the content and use of the site to determine compliance with these Terms of Use and any other operating rules established by us, or for any other reason or purpose. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to edit, refuse to post, or remove any content or materials submitted to or posted on the site, for any reason, including if we find such material to be in violation of these Terms of Use or otherwise objectionable or inaccurate. We also reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to disclose such materials and the circumstances surrounding their transmission to any third party in order to operate the site properly; to protect ourselves, our sponsors, and our visitors; to comply with legal obligations or governmental requests; or for any other reason or purpose.


We do our best to credit submissions such as recipes to our contributors, however, the nature of heirloom recipes and ideas is that they are generally a collaborative affair, which makes the original author difficult, if not impossible to trace.

We are not responsible for the similarity of any of our content or programming to any media or materials or ideas transmitted to the site. Should you send any materials or ideas, you do so with the understanding that you are waiving any claim against Heirloom Meals regarding the use of such materials and ideas in the future, across any media existing or yet to be invented.
