  1. Awwww. You know me too well!! Loved the cookbook article. Thanks so much for sharing it.

    I pretty much never share recipes because I really almost never follow the recipe. When I cook, I'm either making the whole thing up as I go, or I have about 5 cookbooks open to similar recipes and I use them for ideas.

    I find it difficult to repeat the same dish twice because I don't really measure or write anything down!
