My Finds

It’s been said that there is no need to reinvent the wheel, and there are a lot of good recipes out there.  So I just decided that I need to create a page where I can repost recipes I find that I rather like.  And thus, My Finds, was born.

And the other thing is that when I cook, I often don’t even really follow a recipe, you know, the kind with a list of ingredients and step-by-step directions.  So methinks I will have to find some recipes I do like, and might actually follow, or this blog may be pretty short-lived. Lots of times I will just throw together some of this and some of that (kind of like Amelia Bedelia) and see how it turns out; or I will take a recipe and change it up, modify it, and make it mine.  Bwwwaaaahhhh — all without a freezeray gun.  Sometimes, it’s pretty amazing, but I can never quite recreate it, and other times, it’s a dismal failure.  (And remind me some time to write about Kelly’s spaghetti sauce — that was an epic fail.)   Other times I settle for a grilled cheese sandwich with a dill pickle on the side.

Baking is an exception to my a bit of this and a bit of that way of cooking.  I actually do measure when I am baking.  But I don’t use a timer (which drives some of my kids crazy);  I just take things out when they smell done.  I can’t describe what the done smell is exactly, but I recognize it, and my smell method is pretty accurate.  Does anyone else do that?
