Are you a creative cook?

Do you make up your own recipes or modify recipes that you think you might like?
I totally change things up if I am following a recipe I have looked up, but I also really like to just invent my own things. I have a pretty good grasp of what will taste good, and I am always pleased when I get creative and come up with something different.

  • Very creative. I'm not a recipe follower. I do love to read cookbooks, and look at recipes, but I never follow one (unless I'm baking, lol). I make up stuff all the time.

  • Oh yes. Creative would be a good word for it. Not a good cook, but creative. I adjust according to what I have on hand, and the results are ...well let's just say that my husband is very tolerant of my meals. :)

  • I modify. BUT I tend to stick with what we liked, what worked, and repeat our favs. WHat I need help with always is what to pair WITH other foods.

  • I sound just like you! Yes. However most of this year I've been unable to cook. So I'm letting DH find my recipes that are all my own and try them his way! Letting him be the creative cook!!

  • I don't use recipes, I read them, all the time, but when push comes to shove. I just head to my kitchen and cook.

  • I make my own up as well as modify. I have kids with allergies, plus I have allergies. So I can't always follow a recipe. I love just about everything I come up with too.
