I cook a lot. Sometimes I use recipes, more often I improvise. When I'm creating something new I try to document it. I take pictures, I write down recipes.... but not always. All too often I let myself think, "Oh, I'll remember. It was so easy." Or perhaps, "I'll write it down after dinner, or first thing tomorrow," and somehow it's five months later and the page is still blank.... ahem. So, without further excuse, here are some of the lost recipes, may they rest in peace.
The moral of the story is to keep pen and paper handy when you're cooking... or just be prepared to try to make everything all over again. Oh, darn.
