I learned to cook out of desperation. My Grandmother was a great "Down Home" cook and she spoiled me. My Mom was into TV Dinners, yes those things that used to come on a foil tray. Yuk. My first experience with cooking actually was in Boy Scouts over a campfire. After a few times at cooking, I allways got "drafted" because all the other kids likes my cooking better. I've dome all the cooking for my family for over 30 years. and my kids are so spoiled, when they come home for college, they turn down going out and want me to cook. (Can you say "Spoiled") I only really follow a recipe when I'm baking. The rest of the time I either modify it, or I just wing it with out a recipe. ( It pays to write stuff down when you do this though because sometimes you stumble on something awesome, and then you can't recreate it)
