If it's stir fry, I test the meat to see if I seasoned it well enough. With box dinners, I just assume the directions are accurate and play it by ear. Spaghetti...I wait for the time on the box to come around, but I'll test the noodles to make sure they are where we like them...
And my experiment that I made tonight...I FINALLY made potato stroganoff! Without the box! -does happy dance- I wanted to make it on the stove top and I used some boxes of scalloped potatoes so I could take the pre-made potatoes from it, but the rest was me...though I didn't do measurements and tried to remember what standard box dinners require for water and milk amounts...I realized I didn't sample it...till the end. I was getting ready to serve it when I realized I needed to make sure it was cooked. I've never made it without a box before...this was a whole new dish to me at this point...so I sampled it. Came out pretty good lol...kids enjoyed it too. A small victory...just wish I could remember how much of what I put in it so I can recreate it next time too. LOL.
Do you sample while you cook?
