I have a question about making a recipe.
Please keep in mind that 99% of questions you may have about a recipe are answered when you thoroughly read the recipe (and its tips).
Can I make substitutions to a recipe?
Generally, no. If a substitution or variation works, we'll include it under the "variations" heading on the recipe post.
If you are on a restricted diet or have allergies or food intolerances, you might also check out our digital guide Easy Swaps! which gives you simple substitutions for grains, gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, nuts, nightshades, and alcohol that will work in most recipes. It is available to members of our Cooking Club.
Help! The recipe didn't turn out. What did I do wrong?
We test and test and test our recipes. In most cases, if the recipe didn't turn out, you didn't follow the recipe precisely. Even small adjustments to time, temperature, and ingredients can dramatically change a recipe.
We recommend following a recipe step-by-step using the ingredients and equipment recommended.
Health, Wellness + Nutrition
What are your qualifications?
I am a nutritional therapist (NTP) who is certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association. NTPs are trained in foundational nutrition to make bio-individual recommendations and provide support for dietary and lifestyle changes based on client interviews, food and mood journals, and other nutritional assessments. I am also trained as an herbalist.
Nutritional therapists are not doctors or dieticians and are not trained to diagnose, treat, or cure any condition. No advice or recommendations should be construed as medical advice, and the recommendations provided on this site are for education only.
I have a health condition. Can you help me?
No. I am not a doctor and do not provide medical advice. I cannot and will not respond to health and wellness questions, questions about medical conditions, or provide individualized supplement recommendations. Please reach out to your healthcare provider with any health concerns.
Why don't you post nutritional information?
First, nutritional information is an estimate only and prone to flaws, so I can't guarantee the accuracy of the information.
Second, I think focusing on wholesome foods that taste good is a healthier approach for most people than counting calories and macros. If you have a special need that requires careful calculation, I recommend you plug the recipe ingredients and servings into your favorite nutrition tracker.
