When I got out on my own and started cooking for my family yes I did tend to follow a lot of recipes on boxes. As I got more confident I started experimenting more with ingredients until I found myself no longer using them. About the only box item I will glance at the recipe on the box is when I buy Barilla Pasta. If that recipe peaks my interest I'll make a mental note of the ingredients and then when I'm in the mood for pasta I'll try and remember what some of the ingredients were and make my own recipe.

Se non supporta il calore, vattene dalla cucina!

Sure is, Kitchen. Instead of rolling them out into bisquits, like my mother did, I drop them into muffin pans and sprinkle the tops with cinnamon and sugar. They are yummy!

We get by with a little help from our friends
