1. Many of the recipes you find here are considered by me to be gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, egg-free, and/or soy-free, among other qualifiers. However, I do not have control over the ingredients you use to make these recipes nor the environment in which you are making them. At times I list specific brands of ingredients that I used, but companies do change their products at times, and you should always read labels. If you are following a gluten-free diet, for example, check on the gluten-free status of a product or ingredient yourself.
When an ingredient is mentioned that may contain gluten, such as oats or tamari, I am always referring to a gluten-free version of that ingredient whether noted or not. I am not responsible or liable for any reactions that might result from following the posted recipes. Your health is your responsibility.
I am not responsible for the outcome of any recipe you try from this blog/website, cookieandkate.com. You may not always have the same results I do due to variations in ingredients, humidity, altitude, cooking temperatures, typos, errors, omissions, or individual cooking abilities.
Please always use your best judgement when cooking with raw ingredients such as eggs.
Any information you find here is believed to be accurate at the time of posting, however, that could change with product reformulations and new medical information.
