When you find a new recipe do you follow it directly? Mostly I follow a recipe to the letter the first time I am preparing it. I want to make sure whatever it is, it's going to taste as good as it looks in pictures. Some things, like the chicken I'm roasting, I use my own spices that I enjoy on that type of food. I'm trying to live a salt free life, which is not as difficult as a wheat free life, so I rarely use salt unless a new recipe calls for it. A lot of items that you have to bake call for salt. I wonder why that is?
Here is a picture of my collection of cookbooks. Until I've had them out like this, I didn't realize that I had such an affinity to Southern Living.
