Here's a really obvious question... isn't this a discussion board?

I like to see all the different cooking methods/styles, actually.
I think it gives us all great perspectives on cooking.

I think varying the recipes as the different postings are made is like being at a get- together, where the appetizers are passed around. Someone says "yum! These are great!" and the next person says "oh, they are...can you imagine if they also had a bit of ___ on it? Wow!" The third person would say "yes, and maybe a bit of this or that" etc.....

I agree to disagree as well.Whether someone follows a recipe
or dosn't use any at all,doesn't mean they can cook.

I haven't been on for a few days so forgive me if I didn't take note of the date of posting on this thread.

OK, giggling a bit to myself here. It occurs to me that mish asked for LESS debate and ended up getting MORE! LOL. I don't think she wanted anyone to not discuss the recipes posted, I have had many a discussion about "add this minus that". I believe what she was trying to head off is folks being a bit abrasive and saying "EW" or "you did WHAT?" Just a reminder about forum etiquette, not a cause for debate or grumpiness.

OK, still giggling about the debate.

My tupence worth.

As far as posts posts are concerned - Everybody has the right to all the "EW's" and "You did WHAT's" they can muster when referring to my posts.

I can't cook very well but thanks to all on this site I'm learning, still making mistakes and laughing at myself (along with you guys) for the stuffups I make.

Forum etiquette is essential as is a sense of humour and and sense of fairness.

DC is Number 1!!!

Even our Aero Club President has to resort to the words "BROOKSY!!! GIT UNDER TH' HOUSE!! GOO ORN!! GIT!

That's Australian for" Brooksy! Shut up!!

Eloquently said. And right on target.

I'll be waiting to hear what the experiment was and what the results were. Hope you have some fun doing it!

my sentiments exactly, IC/Pic. One of the features I like about this board is the randomness of how conversations evolve.
