The recipe is only a guide for you. (Except in baking desserts.) When a recipe calls for salt, and you don't have any, or you are on a salt free diet, you can season with herbs and other seasonings. The recipe calls for a veggie that you and the rest of your family doesn't really care for, you can substitute another one. You don't have to stick to a recipe.

I totally forgot to respond to this thread back in May.

What I did for the nice gal that bought our home:
A bottle of Proseco and glasses in the `fridge
Two packages of Toilet Paper (it's a lady's thing )
A 3-ring binder full of all of the user manuals for everything left in the house, ie Electric Range, Front Door bell at the security gate, the Lock Box for the Emergency Services in our area, all of the appliances and on and on ...
She was so sweet, she sent me a very nice email of thanks.

Now that the Christmas baking/cooking season is here, I don't think I've mentioned one of the things that keeps me on track in the kitchen. I have multiple timers I got a the dollar store (six, to be exact). When I have several things going that need attention at different times, I set timers and place them on the recipe (well, it is usually just a sticky since I mostly cook without recipes) so I know when that timer goes, I have to rotate, baste, take out of the oven/put in the oven, turn down the temp, whatever. I can't be setting and resetting the main timer all the time, so I picked up several off these timers at the dollar store. I used one today to remind me the cookie dough in the fridge could come out and be rolled, another to remind me to take the cookies that were in the oven out (I was prepping the ingredients for the stew at the same time) and yet another to remind me to check to see if the bread had risen enough to go in the oven. I can get distracted in the kitchen if the phone rings, etc., so my timers help me remember where I was before I was interrupted (or while I am being interrupted).

One of these days I am going to make a trip to our dollar store. I have several different options of getting there, but it puts folks out of their way. I should try to walk to the bus stop as a test run.

I so desperately need a timer I can hear. The one on my stove is one step below useless. It is so soft, you almost have to put your ear down on the hot stove.

Addie, Check the tools on your cell phone, mine has a timer feature and three different alarm clock settings that are easy to use.

I used to use my cell phone timer during photo shoots. The problem was, that I could only set one timer on my phone at a time. The photographer and the prep assistant had to also set alarms on their phones. I learned early on to pop the phone in a ziplock so the screen didn't get all "smudgy" if my fingers were not clean and dry. Wish I had thought of the timers then. They will go off again and again until you stop it. And, because they are small, you can carry it with you if you have to go in another room, etc.

I use a free phone app that, I believe, CG recommend: Thyme, it has five timers marked on a stove. One for each of four burners and one for the oven.
