Let's Just Check the Guidelines

That's what my husband, the engineer, says before he starts cooking or baking. The guidelines, of course, being what most people refer to as a recipe.

The other famous first line is "I just need to modify this a little."

He never follows a recipe.

And the thing is - anything he makes always turns out great. However he seldom keeps track of his modifications, so he can never duplicate his successes. Lately though he's enlisted Pippi as his note-taker. So maybe sometime we can make something again.

Though - chances are, if we do - he'll modify his modifications.

I think AJ and I went to the same cooking school. It is the same way I cook. Only I refer to a recipe as a recipe.

Make sure you try the peanut butter fudge tomorrow - that's what he was creating today!
