Thank you for visiting the Happy Healthy Homey blog. I hope you enjoy the recipes found on this website. Please review this page for disclaimers regarding recipe outcome, nutrition, and food handling safety decisions.

Recipe Disclaimer

The Happy Healthy Homey blog is not responsible for your outcome of any recipe found on our website or linked to from any other source. There are a number of factors that could contribute to not achieving the desired result when preparing a recipe. Some of those can factors can include the ingredients, the brands of ingredients, ingredient substitutions, skipping steps, combining steps or altering the recipe, the equipment used, my possible errors/typos, or the reader’s individual cooking ability. 

Bridget’s Tip: My goal is your success with recipes and tips posted on the Happy Healthy Homey blog. I hope it comes out exactly as you hope it will, but sometimes it may not. Please email me with any questions, so I can do my best to help you.

Prep and Cook Time Disclaimer

I try my hardest to estimate accurate cooking and prep times for the recipes on the Happy Healthy Homey blog. However, it takes me only a few minutes to chop most vegetables and it takes my husband longer to accomplish the same prep work.

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

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

Bridget’s Tip: The gluten-free recipes on the Happy Healthy Homey website may take you a little longer or shorter time to create than indicated on the recipe card. Most gluten-free cakes and cookies take longer to bake than a gluten-laden recipe.

Nutrition Disclaimer

I do not provide nutritional information on my recipes, because the calculators available are disparate in the way they reach those numbers. Also, the product brand and the way it is processed can radically change the nutrition value of any given food. Because I am not confident in their accuracy, I will not post those numbers. 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 nutritional expert.

All information provided regarding nutrition on the Happy Healthy Homey website is intended to be used for informational purposes only. Content related to nutrition is not medical advice is not it intended to diagnose, prescribe, or treat any disease, condition, illness or injury.

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,
