    I'll donate another hat to my favorite charity. Friends and family
    sure! But within reason. I do know my limitations.

    Very generous of of you (again) <lol> What is your favorite charity,
    BTW?

    Yes, I agree with you there. I will not experiment either if people like
    The Boss (and his/her spouse/SO) are coming to dinner. However, my
    family get to suffer my experiments all the time <g>.

    Yes, of course here as well. I haven't failed yet either.

    Some of my best meals have been thrown together experiments. I don't
    think I've ever made anything that was inedible, but then again that may
    just mean I don't take enough chances.

    OTOH when I try to replicate a dish I often forget what I added and come
    up with something different in the end. All edible, some better than
    others.

    If I do start with a recipe I try to remember what it tasted like and
    what I intended to change if I made it again.

    It ain't rocket science unless you think it is....

    That's pretty much what I meant, James. I can remember reading rfc posts 10
    years ago from people in a panic who had guests coming over in 1 or 2 hours.
    They'd write, "I've never cooked this before!!!" I haven't seen many posts
    like that since the "Do you have recipes from Europe" posts died down.
    Heheh.

    Of course. What would be the point otherwise?

    If you want exactly what you expect, there is a restauant down the
    street. Burger King still promises to Do it Your Way.

    If you don't trust me enough to eat what I give you, what are you
    doing in my house?

    If I can't play and share my pleasure with you, let's just order in.
    You pay.

    My problem with the quiz - "Yes , of course" is close in attitude to
    "everything is an experiment", but on the list, opposites in terms of
    confidence. I didn't expect this lack of confidence in experiment.

    <wiggles eyebrows> Like I said tho', I do have some standard "formulas"
    for most stuff and I just do variations on the themes...

    I'd never made grilled shark steaks before for my last guests. I just
    coated them lightly with ground lemon peel and dill weed, then layered
    some thinly sliced lime over that before electrogrilling them.

    The citrus flavor went deeply into the meat and they actually turned out
    better than anticipated. ;-d

    Veggies were simply sauteed mushrooms with celery and onions with more
    dill weed and salt free lemon pepper. I cooked those in coconut oil.

    Me, too! But I always let *them* take the first
    bite. ;-) You know, just in case . . . .

    Hmmm.... I always thought that guests were THE way to try out a
    recipe. That way it gets used up. If it turns out to be less than
    stellar, we're not saddled with the leftovers in the fridge, taking up
    space for a week or so.
