Saratoga Food Fanatic is a personal blog written and edited by myself, Ashley Dingeman. My goal is to help others, especially when dining out at restaurants or buying products when cooking at home, through the sharing of my experiences and tastes. For example, I love sharing my experiences with various restaurants in the Saratoga area and beyond. If you have any questions about this blog, Contact Me HERE.

The compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will be identified as paid advertisements.
Sometimes I am compensated to provide my opinion on products. Even though I receive compensation for those posts, I always give my honest opinions, findings, beliefs, and experiences with them.

More about types of reviews:
There are basically three types of reviews on Saratoga Food Fanatic: Compensated reviews, non-compensated reviews and personal reviews.
Compensated reviews: I have received, at no cost to me, personal use of the product, service, or website being reviewed for the purpose of evaluation or review. I have also received monetary compensation for the time invested in evaluating the product and writing the review. Compensated reviews will be clearly identified as such.
Non-compensated reviews: I have received, at no cost to me, personal use of the product, service, or website being reviewed for the purpose of evaluation or review. I have not received monetary compensation for the review.
Personal reviews: Often times I like to review restaurants, events, or products that I use in my own home. I have received neither monetary compensation nor free use of the product or service. Rather, personal reviews are for products and/or services that I’ve purchased for my own use. This is the case with the majority of my reviews.
I will specify which type of review each is at the beginning of each post.
