The recipies are not for you Chuck, they are for the person who likes what you have made and wants to try and copy it, its a complement .Or for someone who makes something they like and want to able to duplicate it a month later.

The average person has the talent or ability to cook and adjust to their particular taste. Some like my wife need a step by step process and ingredient list. Others use a recipe like a general outline.

When ever I have been asked to give a recipe to be published in a magazine or have contributed toa published cookbook. I try and take both kind of people into account by leaving flexabiity of ingredients there but at the same time defining the process/ method technique of cooking.

People modify, change, add ingredients, but no one invents a new way to saute, roast etc.
