How often do you follow a recipe exactly as written?
When cooking from a recipe, I'm a weigh & measure type person. I'm just plain awful when it comes to adding a pinch of this & a dab of that---meaning poor recipe results. Dorie encourages us to "play around" with recipes but it just doesn't work for me. What % of the time do you follow recipe instructions to the "T"? Baking differ from entrees & sides?
