Recipe Result Disclaimer
While I want everyone to have a stellar experience with my recipes, there is only so much I can do from my end to help you achieve the best results.
Stress Baking is not responsible for your outcome of recipes on this site (or linked to from other sources). There are a wide variety of reasons that a recipe may not turn out the way you want it to, including but not limited to:
- The reader's general cooking/baking ability
- Expired ingredients
- Improper measurements
- Lack of adjustment for elevation
- Unsuitable ingredient swaps
- Inaccurate temperature conversion
- Pets adding their own fur in efforts to help ;)
The good news is that I'm here to help! Check out all the posts in the Baking Basics series for tips and tricks for people who are new or experienced in the kitchen.
Food Safety Disclaimer
Readers of Stress Baking are assuming full responsibility for their own safety while using kitchen utensils and appliances to avoid bodily injury.

Some examples of food and kitchen safety are:
- Cook to a minimum temperature of 165°F (74°C)
- Do not use the same utensils on cooked food that previously touched raw meat

Preparation and Bake Time Disclaimer
The recipes you make from Stress Baking may take you more or less time to prepare and bake or cook than what is indicated on the recipe card. It is all dependent on your own personal experience, comfort level and circumstances – if you're frosting a cake with a baby on your arm, it may take you longer than me (and also in that scenario, gigantic high five to you for being so awesome).
The nutrition information listed in the recipe cards found on Stress Baking is generated by an online API that recognizes ingredient names and amounts and makes calculations based on the serving size information input by Stress Baking.
This nutritional information is provided as a general guideline, but is not evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration and should not be treated as official calculations.
Please consult a doctor or licensed nutritionist if you have concerns or specific questions about your own dietary needs.

Stress Baking is lucky enough to collaborate with brands to create original recipes and posts for products I use and recommend. You will always see a blurb at the top of those posts to indicate they are sponsored.
Stress Baking always wants to hear from readers about their experiences making the recipes found on the site via comments and star ratings – hearing from readers is one of the best parts of the job!

Stress Baking will make every effort to meet ADA standards for website accessibility to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to consume and enjoy the content on the site.
However, given the constantly evolving and complex ADA standards and small team at Stress Baking (it's just me!), it may take some time to implement those practices across the state.
Keep sending feedback to leslie at stressbaking dot com about how Stress Baking can improve your experience, but keep in mind those changes may not be immediate or quick to implement. Regardless, a plan will be put in place to implement those changes as quickly as possible.
