If I'm trying something new, I browse several ideas online (for cooking times and tips from the comments) but then I always end up just figuring out something similar on my own.

I never have all the ingredients for anything, for one thing. And I never measure anything, ever.

If I want something specific, I've never made, yes.
Mostly i just read it and make modifications.
Baking always or I'll screw up

I follow recipes 90% of the time.

I follow recipes for certain things. Then add my own twist. On other stuff I just cook my own way. And try and think of things that sound good together.

We will follow it the first time (making substitutions if necessary for kids allergies) and then we will change it up the next time if there was something we felt we didn't need or we could add, we usually do that.  DH likes to make up his own recipes but reading a few over and then mix them.
