Making new recipes

One of my favorite things about cooking is trying out new recipes and getting good feedback. I also love expanding my recipe book with different types of food than I might already have. I usually try making a new recipe at least once a week. I was wondering how often you try a new recipe.

Well, the GM at the club I work at wants to see new things, instead of the same-old same-old that we're used to making. At home, though, my family isn't to terribly keen on trying new things, so I have to make small batches and hope they like the smell.

I'm always trying new things too, and my family is good about trying them. I tend to cook something up with whatever I have on hand, sometimes using a recipe as a guide, sometimes not.
If I'm using some sort of new ingredient or strange combination, I do keep it to myself, because my rather un-imaginative husband does tend to turn his nose up until he smells and tastes the finished product.

Same here!

The only problem is that I seldom write any of the recipes I make up down, and my wife gets a little annoyed when I come up with something she really likes, and knows I may not be able to repeat it.

BTW, does anyone else here make their own cream-of-[fill-in-the-blank] sauces? I like to when I have the time, but if my wife catches me, she rolls her eyes, and tells me no one does that, and asks me if I am feeling okay.

i voted. 1 to 3x a month. i go thru spurts of trying new recipes, then i'll fall back on tnt things for a while.


umm, just curious, what is less than 1x a month. wouldn't that be none at all? or does it mean you intend to try to make something new, but never got around to it?

I'm afraid I'm in a giant rut. I never really try new recipes.

That being said, when I cook I just throw things together and hardly ever measure
anything. So, even though I make the same dish time after time it's always different.

I did find a new shrimp recipe yesterday that I'm going to FORCE myself to make tonight... I'm always afraid of ruining a meal but... no pain no gain, right??

Buckytom, less than once a month might be somethig like, once every 2 months, or a few times a year. I wanted to cover all of the options.

pdswife, good luck on the shrimp recipe. Let us know how it turnes out.
