I learned that I'm not a good cook, but I can follow a recipe. Give me a recipe and I can make a reasonable facsimile of whatever the dish was. Ask me to improvise and you're shooting craps.

Roger that. That's me 110%. It's a 50/50 shot that if I tweak a recipe, it might come out edible. :-)

1poorlady, on the other hand, just has an intuition. She can look at what we have, open the spice cabinet...pinch of this, dash of that, sprinkle of something else...and it's wonderful. We can never have it again because she doesn't remember (or measure!) what she did.


Don't I wish.
