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..
