1. This website is my personal blog and recipe repository. I am not a professionally trained chef. Rather, I am a recipe developer and professional food blogger who likes to cook and bake and share my recipes and culinary creations with others.
2. Unless otherwise stated, the recipes on this blog are my own creations or from my own personal family collection. The recipes have been tested multiple times by me but any recipes used from this site by anyone are at the user’s own risk. You may not always achieve the same results as I have due to various reasons including, but not limited to: individual cooking ability and skill level; quality of ingredients; ingredient variations, substitutions, and/or omissions; cooking method, equipment, and appliances; altitude, etc. This means, for example, if you omit or substitute an ingredient in a recipe, change the amount of an ingredient, use a different cooking method than that with which the recipe was developed and tested by me, use a different appliance or baking pan, pot, etc., than that called for in the recipe, you accept the risk that that the recipe may not turn out as successfully as if the original recipe was followed and used as published and intended. Therefore, while care has been taken to provide readers with accurate information, users are to use their own discretion before taking any decisions based on the information on this blog.
