Recipe Disclaimers

Thank you for vis­it­ing the Glen­da Embree blog! I hope you enjoy the recipes found at Please review this page for dis­claimers regard­ing recipe out­come, nutri­tion, and food han­dling safe­ty decisions.

Recipe Disclaimer

Glen­da Embree blog is not respon­si­ble for your out­come of any recipe found on our web­site or one of our recipes linked to from anoth­er source. There are a num­ber of fac­tors that could con­tribute to you not achiev­ing the desired result when prepar­ing any recipe. Some of those can include: the ingre­di­ents and brands of ingre­di­ents, your ingre­di­ent sub­sti­tu­tions, skip­ping steps, com­bin­ing steps, com­plet­ing steps in a dif­fer­ent order or alter­ing the recipe, the equip­ment used, my pos­si­ble errors/typos, or the reader’s indi­vid­ual cook­ing ability.

In a nut­shell: My goal is your suc­cess with the recipes post­ed, here. I hope it comes out exact­ly as you hope it will, but some­times it may not. I hope you’ll always feel free to email me with a ques­tion so I can do my best to help.

Prep and Cook Time Disclaimer

I try my hard­est to esti­mate accu­rate cook­ing and prep times for the recipes on the Glen­da Embree blog. How­ev­er, it takes me only a few sec­onds to chop most veg­eta­bles. My hus­band or teenage grand­daugh­ters take much longer to com­plete that same task. Expe­ri­ence and skill lev­els are always fac­tors in the time nec­es­sary to com­plete a recipe.

When prepar­ing meals, please take into account that expe­ri­ence in the kitchen, the abil­i­ty and will­ing­ness to mul­ti­task dur­ing cook­ing, and whether you’ve pur­chased pre-chopped veg­eta­bles or are chop­ping your own, etc. are going to affect prep and cook times. 

Also, every­one’s oven and kitchen tools are a lit­tle dif­fer­ent. Bak­ing times can vary quite a bit, depend­ing on your spe­cif­ic oven. So, you need to prac­tice with and know your own equip­ment to achieve the best results and under­stand the time it may require. 

In a nut­shell: The recipes on the Glen­da Embree blog may take you a lit­tle longer or short­er time to cre­ate than indi­cat­ed on the recipe card.

Nutrition Disclaimer

I do pro­vide nutri­tion­al infor­ma­tion on my recipes, but in my opin­ion, the cal­cu­la­tors avail­able are so dis­parate in the way they reach their num­bers. This can be because the brand of prod­uct and the way it is processed can rad­i­cal­ly change the nutri­tion­al val­ue of any giv­en food. Because I am not con­fi­dent in any cal­cu­la­tor’s accu­ra­cy, I post this infor­ma­tion as a cour­tesy only. It is not guar­an­teed to be accu­rate and the read­er must do their own due dili­gence if this is infor­ma­tion that is vital to them. To ensure the most accu­rate nutri­tion­al infor­ma­tion, the read­er should make cal­cu­la­tions based on the ingre­di­ents they per­son­al­ly use, using their own pre­ferred method, or con­sult­ing with a licensed nutri­tion­al expert.

In a nut­shell: The Glen­da Embree blog is not intend­ed as a source of nutri­tion­al or food safe­ty advice, and its read­ers assume full respon­si­bil­i­ty for any deci­sions made regard­ing their own health and safety.

General Food Safety Disclaimer

The read­er assumes full respon­si­bil­i­ty for using their best judg­ment when cook­ing with raw ingre­di­ents such as beef, poul­try, or eggs, and seek­ing infor­ma­tion from an offi­cial food safe­ty author­i­ty if they are unsure.

The read­er must also take care to not phys­i­cal­ly injure them­selves by com­ing into con­tact with hot sur­faces, sharp blades, and oth­er kitchen hazards.

It is the respon­si­bil­i­ty of the read­er to review all list­ed ingre­di­ents in a recipe before cook­ing to ensure that none of the ingre­di­ents may cause a poten­tial adverse reac­tion to any­one eat­ing the food based on recipes fea­tured on the Glen­da Embree blog. This includes aller­gies, preg­nan­cy-relat­ed diet restric­tions, etc.

In a nut­shell: Please, be care­ful with knives, don’t cook recipes with ingre­di­ents you’re aller­gic to, and use your best judge­ment with raw ingre­di­ents. You are respon­si­ble to do the nec­es­sary research and make appro­pri­ate food-han­dling deci­sions for you and for your own family.
