Q: Do I have to be Jewish to upload a story/recipe?
A: No. Bubbiephiles from any religious background, including Jewish (but, say, for Jesus) are welcome and encouraged to contribute.
Q: What’s a Bubbie?
A: See our “About Page“.
Q: Can I submit a recipe without photos or a story behind it? Can I submit a story or photos without a recipe?
A: Yes, as long as it’s food related! Whether you have a recipe, essay, photo, or a scanned picture of a handwritten card pulled from an old recipe box, we hope you’ll share.
Q: How do I create a user profile?
A: Click the register/login link located within the sidebar on the right. You can create a new user profile or register for the site using your Facebook account.
Q: How do I upload a recipe?
A: Easy as 1-2-3! 1) Register or log in to the site. 2) Visit the Submit a Recipe page (you can also access this page via the main menu under “Recipes.”) 3) Approve your posting: after you submit your recipe, an email will be sent to the address attached to your Beyond Bubbie profile containing a link that will allow you to approve and post your recipe to the site. If you do not receive this email within 2 hours after your submission, contact us.
Q: How do I share my story/recipe with others?
A: Print it out, go to Kinkos, and make several hundred copies. Buy some tape, and find well placed telephone poles, mailboxes, and bulletin boards in your community. Or follow us on Twitter & Facebook. You can also sign-in to Beyond Bubbie with your Facebook account to be given the option to populate your Facebook profile with the content you upload here.
Q: Where do I find ingredients for these dishes?
A: Most ingredients should be readily available in your community. If your recipe calls for a unique item please, whenever possible, provide tips on where it can be found–we’d appreciate it! But seriously, this is 2012. Shouldn’t you be harvesting kale from your rooftop?
