Recipe Disclaimer

Cooking with Rakhi 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 include the ingredients and 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.

Prep and Cook Time Disclaimer

I try my hardest to estimate accurate cooking and prep times for the recipes on the Cooking with Rakhi blog. However, it takes me only a few seconds to chop most vegetables. 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 Cooking with Rakhi blog may take you a little longer or shorter time to create than indicated on the recipe card.

Nutrition Disclaimer

I do provide roughly estimated nutritional information on my recipes, but the calculators available are so disparate in the way they reach those numbers and because the brand of a product and the way it is processed can radically change the nutritional value of any given food. Because I am not confident in their accuracy, I can’t give a guarantee to 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 licensed nutritional expert.

In a nutshell: The Cooking with Rakhi 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.

KIDS SAFETY DISCLAIMER

Cooking with kids is fun and equally messy but it is a great bonding time and creates memorable moments. However, child safety measures should be given the highest priority.

Readers must take utmost safety measures when handling the kids in the kitchen. It is the reader’s responsibility to supervise and assist the child all the time and ensure all the necessary protection measures are taken and appropriate clothing is provided. Ensure to monitor the child while handling electrical appliances.

Although there is no definite age to introduce kids in the kitchen tasks, the reader as a parent/guardian should take the responsibility to judge the child’s capabilities and assign the tasks accordingly.

Do not allow small children to handle electrical appliances, sharp objects such as knives, ovens, and hob. Take extra care when kids are near hot surfaces and hot pieces of equipment.
