Who uses recipes and who is winging it?

Just wondering how much we all throw things together as opposed to looking up a recipe. I do most of my cooking on the fly except for certain baked goods that I don't make very often. Sometimes I'll go looking for ideas on something new to do with chicken say and then just use the idea but not follow the recipe. I wonder how many of you do the same.
