Courtleet is an affiliate blog that collects various recipes, anywhere from Wikipedia articles to cereal box suggestions, and delivers them in a very direct, no-bull manner.


Courtleet is run entirely by one guy: Santo.

That’s me.


The Internet itself is rife with recipes from around the world, even videos showing the steps. And we can’t forget the countless variations of recipes, or that some of them are done on the fly, eyeballing it.

This blog serves no different. However, like some of you out there, I’m not exactly fond of the cruft that is out on many of these recipe webpages, so all I really sell you on is my commitment to simplicity in the content, keeping it very readable.

You don’t need flowery paragraphs of someone recalling their childhood or fancy video editing magic to woo you. And you most certainly don’t need an ad blowing up in your face when you’re trying to read the next steps.

You just want a deliberate set of instructions and data to relay a recipe from the screen to your stomach.

That’s the role this site fits.

And if I have the appropriate links for whatever ingredients or tools you’ll need, I’ll directly link them so you have a one-stop way to order them for your plan to make it. This is specifically how the website earns its commissions – affiliate links.


So I decided to take the undoubtedly popular (and of course necessary) niche of cuisine as the theme of my blog. Gastronomy and Mixology is a small passing interest of mine, though I’m not a professional cook or bartender or connoisseur by any stretch.

There’s just something nice about having a broad collection of recipes from everywhere and everywhen, from stuff I grew up with, to something common on the other side of the planet, to something disappearing to the sands of time, to something so eccentric and one-off, it just had to be immortalized.

But rather than write out a book that’ll end up collecting dust on someone’s shelf, if even at a publisher’s warehouse, I rather it just be completely online, where any errata or additional info can be updated right then and there in the post, rather than shell out a Second Edition or such. And with the magic of WordPress category/tags and a search widget, I can further narrow it down so you can get straight to the recipe(s) you want.

It’s also kind of neat to have these recipes hosted as a website so anyone can pull them up anywhere they go, at home and abroad; myself included.
