Ohhhhhh. I didn't know they knew each other.

I think you had better live without the recipe. A good marriage is worth more than a good meal.

they don't know each other, but women have those extra senses for things like that. it's creepy. and both are hot blooded, so i'm not gonna risk it.

you said it tho, happy wife = happy life...

Well, there is nothing I can do, she won't do it anyway. The heck with her. I'm going to have to experiment my self.

That is completelly diffrent thing. She's not selling anything. All together, she's not even from the same town I am. She was visiting and chances of meeting her again are slim to none.

Just bring your wife alone and go get the recipe.

Yep, just take your wife with you...
kiss her and hold her hand a lot while you're there. Make sure she's a major part of
the conversation and all will be well.

I had the same problem with my MIL. She never measured anything. However I am the same way. People ask for my recipes and I just write down approximate measures. Please don't ask me for my Stuffed Grape Leaves recipe.

My grandmother tried to teach me her cherry pie.

I can bake a cherry pie and it is good, but not like my grandmother's. She didn't measure anything either.

It's very rare that I measure anything when I cook too. Too much measuring takes most of the fun out of it, IMO.
