For me recipes are ballpark guide lines, and I often change amounts, ingredients, because of personal preference or what I have on hand. Some of things I still cook is how I remember my mom doing it and as the years have gone by I don't know how much or little I may of change some of them.
So what I'm saying is it wouldn't bother me at all to have someone change it up a bit. Heck my deviled eggs or macaroni salad is never exactly the same and been asked multiple times for the recipe for both. My response normally after a moment of thought is I'm not sure I remember how I made this batch. No joke, one of these days I should start and write things down and make a written recipe from the ways I like certain dishes best.
