A pinch of this, a dash of that. I never measure anything, I never taste anything, but somehow thins have always turn out well.

I too do a lot of pinching but I do always taste as I go along. the only thing I really measure is ingredients when I bake.

I don’t even do that. I just throw in rough amount.

We lost so much and I am not talking about the cost as much as family memories including the family Bible that went back to the 1800s. But life goes on and I hope someone enjoyed all those recipes that were in one of the many boxes.

I'll never write a cookbook... I have a loose-leaf pad with all my recipes and notes for variations, which I'm hoping someone will treasure when I'm dead.

But if I were to write a cookbook, I would name it "Do It Your Way" (cue Frank Sinatra) and it would be recipes with different variations so you could adjust the outcome to your particular tastes or needs. Kind of like those books for children that had different endings.
