What do you all think? Have you ever used a Cook's Illustrated recipe?
I share recipes on my site and my theory is this:
I think most people get really tired, really fast of the "I'd tell you but then I'd have to kill you" type cooks. Recipes and food were meant to be shared. They bring happiness and confidence and comfort.
Being stingy with a recipe, or even technique, just shows the world an ugly, greedy person-and suddenly the food just doesn't taste as good as it once did.
