OK, I admit it, I don’t always follow recipes. I have these moments when I think I know better and tweak perfectly good recipes as I see fit for any number of reasons. Anyone who cooks will tell you – sometimes these nuances work and sometimes … well they don’t and you can be left eating something disappointing or tossing the whole dish. My favorite recipes will be shared here along with notes on any changes I make.
