On Recipes

There is something I'd like to touch on that I feel is implicit in my posts, but I'd like to make it explicit. When I put up a recipe, it is intended to be descriptive, not proscriptive. That is, it is meant to document what I did, but not to put limits on what you do with it. So, I may specify certain ingredients, but their use just means it's what I had. Say I specify Persian cucumber, unless I give you good reasons why they are superior for this purpose, just use whatever cucumbers you have. Feel free to substitute, reduce, increase, add, remove, etc. to your hearts desire

Then come leave a comment and tell me what you did, 'cause I'd love to know.

Happy Eating!
