When you cook...... you measure?

I just throw everything in and it usually turns yummy!

  • My mom always said ....The best cooks never need a recipe.... she was right, I can even do cookies without a recipe!
    I will look at a recipe and see how I can make it better and I always do! :)

    My only problem is when I make something outstanding!! and my husband whats me to make it again, well then it is then i wished i wrote down what I used

  • Depends on what I'm cooking. If it's a new recipe I stick to whatever written. If I've made it before I can usually tell without measuring. Baking on the other hand, have to measure it all - I'm not one of those people who can pour salt in their hand and know if it's a 1/2 teaspoon or not.

  • my grandma taught me how to cook and she never owned a single (typical) measuring instrument. I do it by look and feel.

  • I don't measure, unless I'm baking. I learned the hard way that baking doesn't work well with the "throw stuff in" approach. :)

  • It depends on what I'm making. If I'm baking something like a dessert, yes I measure. But for everything else, I just eye it.

  • I measure everything

  • I almost always measure everything. My husband is the opposite and usually asks me, "what the hell are you doing?", when he sees me measuring certain things, lol.
