I usually start with the main idea of a recipe and then go from there.If it is something new that I want to know how it was intended I will follow the recipe exactly.I think people only ask me how I made it so they will know what not to do.

This is why we have recipes in the first place...

So you can make that great pork soup again and SO will be happy

So you don't have to remember what kind of sausage you used in that great lasagna.

So your soup tastes just the way your DH, DD or DS remembers it from last time.

Write it down, type it up, save it. It may be a classic one day and your children won't be wishing they had asked you for the recipe while you were still alive.
