Do you modify a recipe to suit your needs

like if it calls for one thing but you don't want that do you skip that ingredient or just feel you have to move on to a new recipe.
There are people who don't realize they can modify a recipe to their taste and for me I never really follow a recipe but I do use it to get ideas from it and then take off in my own direction

  • Sure-I modify all the time, unless it is an essential ingredient, especially if I don't have a particular ingredient on hand. I will substitute something else or just leave it out.

  • I will modify anything to suit me. I am very picky and have a hard time accepting certain ingredients.

  • Sometimes. Most often we'll omit onions, my husband and I don't really care for them. I'll usually skip recipes that call for mushrooms though. Again, we don't like them and I fee like too much would be taken away from the recipe to try it without.

  • Yes! I deal with Meniere's Disease and have to modify everything I eat due to the salt content in my foods, To much and I get dizzy spells and get sick and could wind up in the E.R.

  • I skip things all the time. Or if it says finely chop onions, I leave the onions in long strips because I am weird, I like the flavor of onions, but not the texture, so leaving them in long strips makes it easier for me to pick them out later
