I am not. I am operating under “Oregon’s Cottage Food Law”, which means that although my kitchen does not require a health department inspection; I could be subject to one at any time. So that means I keep my kitchen, my tools, and myself clean and sanitized for your safety! I am also required to follow all health and safety requirements laid out by the Oregon Health Department plus carry a current food handlers safety certificate.
And, although, my bakery isn’t currently subject to domestic kitchen laws, Ambers GF Bakery is a registered with the state of Oregon, and licensed by the city of Tualatin.
I also follow all FDA guidelines for a dedicated Gluten-Free facility and labeling. And, trust me, I KNOW how important it is to follow this to a “T”.
If you have any comments or concerns, feel free to ask!
FAQ: “Are you bakes nut-free?”
All of my flours and ingredients are nut-free, unless the recipe calls for nuts or you want me to add them. My kitchen is not dedicated nut-free though, so it may not be safe for severe allergies. If you’re wondering if a bake has nuts added – Just Ask!
Well, just like any kitchen/food service you can never be 100% sure. Restaurants score low and fail inspections all the time! In fact, one of the reasons I decided to open my own bakery is because I worked for one that was utterly disgusting in their health, hygiene and sanitation practices. And, they are a fully licensed food service business!
Although my kitchen isn’t commercially licensed, I am subject to inspections. And, regardless of that, I have high standards when it comes to cleanliness in my kitchen!
My commitment to you is this…..
My kitchen, my tools, and me are cleaned and sanitized multiple times/day.
I use gloves when mixing things by hand and packaging already baked foods.
I keep foods stored safely and properly.
I check ingredients for expiration and quality before using them.
Other people in my house do not use the kitchen when I’m baking/packaging.
I do not have any pets in my house – let alone my kitchen.
If me or anyone in my household isn’t feeling well, I will not be baking.
I have a food handlers certification and follow guidelines set out by the Oregon Health Department.

Yes! I have celiac disease and have been Gluten-Free for 20+ years. So, I take this very seriously for you and for me.
First of all, I am so sorry! My goal is to make you and your GF heart sing – not cry. But, if that’s the case please just tell me – reach out via my online comment form or email. I don’t issue refunds, unless I completely botch something or it’s an emergency situation. But, I do want to make it right!
