I follow baking recipes to the max..It was just lately that I've really jumped in and started baking things other than breads and foccacias..Cooking main meals, I've done that long enought to know the likes and dislikes of my gang. When I do a "classic" I follow that recipe to the end. if it's the first time, if we are satisfied, I most likely will leave it be. Some recipes if not exactly nuts over them I'll tweak with different herbs or seasonings. Some recipes I'll use a different meat, in place of the one called for, such as veal marsala..While I like veal, two of my kids will not touch it.. So we use either pork or chicken breasts..

Nice topic...Let's us know each others ways of cooking likes and dislikes..

I'm among those like Pam who look up several recipes, then extrapolate to come up with something that will please the taste buds of our guests and us. Although I'm a confirmed omnivore, I am always looking for something interesting in vegetarian and veggie side dishes, so something new in that area catches my attention easily. (Husband and I "eat vegetarian" at least a couple days a week -- good for budget, health, waistline). I don't care to bake, so when I do it is always tried and true recipes (only about ... two! LOL!) so that isn't an issue. We have a "bunch for brunch" (a half-dozen of us), so I do look for interesting additions to brunch for our monthly feasts.

I like to try things familiar but with a twist. I don't go too far out on a limb and try to make things that are mostly homestyle recipes. I've had quite a time finding a recipe for an apple brown betty like I saw Jacques Pepin make the other day. It looked so good and each one I pull up doesn't seem to be as nice as the one he made. I never dreamed there were so many recipes for them and so few in cook books. By the time I find one, I suppose my apples won't be good.
