When I cook something without using a recipe and it turns out unexpectedly well, I often forget what I did and can never recreate the dish again. I think it’s time to fix that by writing down a few recipes and other adventures in cooking. I may also document the occasional failure so that others may avoid learning the hard way.
I often don’t measure carefully, so consider all amounts as rough estimates unless otherwise specified. You may also find it helpful to imagine a “or to taste” disclaimer at the end of most amounts. I hope the instructions will be comprehensible to a moderately experienced cook, but I certainly haven’t included details for every step. Please feel free to leave comments if you try making any of these and find that something critical is missing.
Final disclaimer: I will come back and freely modify recipes if subsequent experience produces better results, so be sure to print out a copy if you think the recipe is perfect as it’s written today.
