Thoughts on sharing recipes?
Does it irk you when friends keep their recipes a closely guarded secret? Or do you sympathize with their desire to keep recipes in limited circulation?
How do you navigate the friend-recipe sharing landscape? Is it a tit-for-tat thing; is there an unspoken understanding that you just don't ask each other for recipes; do you rummage through their bookshelves and kitchen drawers for clues to the secret sauce? Or are you the one with the recipe that you keep declining to share?
