I can’t follow recipes. I read a recipe and my hand immediately flies in a different direction and changes something. It’s always something.
I feel like cooking becomes a job when I follow recipes. When I develop a recipe or put my own spin on an existing recipe I feel like I’m creating something. Like it’s an art. It’s mine. But it’s certainly not a job like it is when I’m following a recipe someone else has poured their heart into making.
I suppose that’s why I have such a difficult time with my own food blog. I absolutely love sharing my recipes and pictures. I feel if I don’t post my recipe down the smallest ounce that you can have a kind of freedom with it. If it’s something more complicated then obviously I’ll give measurements. Many times though, I don’t make things that are made with a strict amount of ingredients. And that’s why it’s fun!
Does anyone else have a difficult time following recipes?
